Pistol grip on a 12 guage pump???
 
I have a NEF Pardner Pump that I keep for HD and going out shooting that I'm considering modifying with a pistol type grip (which I don't know is possible, that's why I'm throwing the idea out there)...
Why? Because I just like the way it looks.
What can all of you experts on the subject tell me about the subject?
Is it fairly easy to do?
Is it relatively inexpensive?
How does it affect the way that I'll shoot the gun?
Any recommendations on what type of grip I should go for and where I should get it?
I'd like to hear any and all opinions/facts concerning this.
Thank you...

They are useful in cramped quarters, but they are not fun to shoot.

Harder than you think to hit anything more than a few feet away. Not my first choice.

I like the full stocks with a pistol grip a good but better. It allows for better accuracy and keeps more of the fun in.:)

Wear gloves when practicing. The pistol grip on a shotgun will tear up your hands. As stated, cool looking but not fun to shoot.

For my Remington they make a folding stock/ pistol grip unit. Great for close quarters or put dowm the stock for longer ranges.

Don't know if there is one to fit your stick.

I'm thinking that maybe I should re-consider this and think a little more about it before I decide to do anything now after reading these replies.
When I go out shooting and blowing up water jugs (and whatever else suits my fancy that day) I still want to be able to hit them from a reasonable distance and have fun...
Maybe I'll save this project for the future when my arsenal has grown a little bit.
Thanks for the info everybody.

I personally have no interest in a pistol grip shotgun. A shutgun was ment to shouldered and I believe it should be. I don't think you'll find enough difference in your ability to move around corners with a shouldered weapon over a pistol grip to justify the loss of control. Not just control of the weapon while firing but if an attacker were to get close enough to get a hand on the weapon, your ability to retain it with a stock burried in your shoulder is stronger.

+1 to both replies here. They're not bad at all, but its a pain literally to shoot after a while and accuracy is diminished with the pistol grip.

Plain pistol grips for shotguns are a bad idea, IMHO. Many folks think they look "Cool", but are infact pretty useless on a legal length shotgun. They may have a place on an NFA SBS or AOW. I think the whole craze got started with Tubbs on Miami Vice.
