Default pistol grip or regular stock?

i have a pardner pump protector and will be using it for home defense as well as a hiking and camping gun and possibly a close range deer gun. i was thinking of putting a pistol grip on it as it would shorten it for hiking, but for home defense and deer hunting i don't know. what do ya'll think?, leave the factory stock on or put a pistol grip on. i know there are folding stocks too and that would give me both but they're more expensive. so would ya'll put a pistol grip on, leave it alone or put a folding stock thats got the pistol grip or regular stock choice? thanks

It's hard to say, really a personal preference, i'm a fan of pistol grips with m4 style stocks. ATI makes a top foldind stock w/ pistol grip for about 70 bucks, my buddy has one on his 870 and it's pretty nice, worth the money imo

I say leave it alone. Why put all that energy into your wrist? I shot a 12 with just the rear pistol grip, I would rather chop off my arm than do that again...

Are you talking fullstock with pistol grip or pistol grip only? The PGO stocked guns I've shot were not fun or accurate, the ones I've shot with full stock and pgs like speedfeed are great! You could also get the M-4 style stock to adjust length to suit conditions.

Knoxx recoil reducing stock. Gives you a pistol grip and adjusts to length and reduces recoil. $129 well spent on your shotty. :-)

I agree. Makes the gun more managable and a wood stock is a first rate close quarter non-lethal weapon. MHO you understand.

Stick with the stock. Real stock.

I'm inclined to agree. Too much pressure on the wrist. My Mossberg 590A1 has the factory stock, and I am quite satisfied with it, as it provides the purpose of getting it in the first place ~ home defense.

I prefer the traditional stocks myself. Especially for hunting.
