Agree with everyone on getting a stock. As far as SD loads with manageable recoil, my favorite is the Hornady TAP 00 reduced recoil. My daughter @ 110 lbs shoots my 590A1 with ease using this load.....

Default Mossberg 500 Rolling Thunder

I appreciate all the feedback for you guys. It was pretty consensus on changing out the pistol grip for a stock. I had only shot reduced recoil through it with the PG an it was manageable but I'll take your word for it instead of a jacked up wrist with what it might be like with some 00 magnum buckshot. That being said I found a stock from ATI that I ordered yesterday. It folds to the left side so it can still be a bit shorter for storage in a vehicle. The "stabalizer" looks like it would have threads exposed if I took it off so I guess it will just stay on and I'll report back after I shoot it with some full power loads see if it actually reduces muffle lift like they claim.

I have found that if you put the stock under your arm, the gun has the same maneuverability characteristics as the pistol grip in close quarters for HD/SD situations. Plus adds some stability, and gives you the option of a full stock if needed.

Lol. That's a funny typo.

It was time for a new signature. This is what you get.

Lol autocorrect helps people spell but also helps them to look like idiots

Refer back to the quote about the Hollywood chickies. I heard muff lift is popular out there

Using any sort of pistol grip on a Mossberg will make the slide release and the safety difficult to operate.

I consider having the safety quickly and easily operable to be rather important on an HD gun.

P.S. That muzzle dohickey has to go.

Well I got an ATI stock on it and ordered a normal 18.5" barrel so if anyone is in the market for the barrel in the picture then hit me up!
