I've got double pistol grips on my 870, with the foregrip it spreads the recoil between both hands, making it very managable. As far as accuracy I guess that comes with practice. I cam knock a 1 litter bottle of a stump at 20 yards, from the hip.

UPDATE: i couldn't decide on what to do as i wanted a pistol grip to take hiking and camping but needed a stock for deer hunting. my nephew solved my problem, i had a old winchester 22 that my nephew has wanted for a long time, he offered to get me another pardner pump plus my pistol grip and a pistol forgrip. i agreed so i now have a full stock deer shotgun and one with a hogue pistol grip and a tac star forgrip. i fired it yesterday and with field loads and reduced recoil buckshot it wasn't bad at all, i fired slugs it kicked pretty good, but the hogue grip seems to help with recoil. all in all i like it and i have a short 27.75 inch gun that i can just sling across my back, which is good i'm a short guy and a real long gun doesn't fit me well. thanks

I just got da ati six piston scorpion stock it give u less recoil in the back n in the pistol grip I put it on my Winchester 1300 speed pump works great

I much prefer full pistol grip and synthetic stock on any long gun.

My Benelli M-2 is a dream to shoot. In large part due to the full pistol grip.

after having shot a few over the years, i just don't care for them. way too much recoil placed on the wrist. i would prefer the full stock with a pistol grip rather than just the pistol grip alone. some people like the pistol grip only and if they are comfortable shooting them and have problem with controlling it, then by all means go for it. it does make for a shorter and handier shotgun.

The last two shotguns that ive owned had pistol grips with synthetic stocks. I prefer the full stock w/ pistol grip
