Owning a gun requires a few things. Knowing that gun inside out, and being comfortable shooting it. Imo pistol grip shot guns are probably the worse to shoot in terms of being comfortable shooting. I'm not saying they are bad, but if you can shoot with one more power too you. In my case I broke my wrist a little while ago so having the recoil go threw my wrists just doesn't work for me. Holding it was comfortable though.
