I have studied this philosophy and completely agree with you. Nice firearm!

thank you. just something i have learned as i have gotten older and hopefully wiser! i did the "tactical" thing years ago, but have come to the conclusion, more isn't always better, but simpler is. at least for me. i don't have to remember where the switches are, or worry about things getting in the way.

i like simple!

Well if you're using your shotgun for home defense, I'd argue you'd be "wiser" if you were using a more tactical shotgun

Nothing "gets in the way" on a tactical shotgun.
Adjustable stocks are better for CQB.
Side saddles will give you the extra rounds if you ever needed em.
A light is almost essential. You can see who you're shooting and ACTUALLY hit them. Unless you somehow how night vision.
And I prefer a vertical fore grip because there is NO WAY my hand is slipping. Whereas with sweat on my hands, I've had minor slippage with standard fore grips.

Plus..they look cool.

well you do it your way and i'll do it mine! and i'll address your points.

anything the shotgun didn't come with from the factory can get in the way.

i am not going into combat so i doubt i need anything CQB! my stock works just fine for HD!

i have five extra OO on the buttstock if needed. again i'm not going into combat. i have ten shells if needed.

i keep nightlites on and keeps the house lit well enough i don't need an extra light attached to my shotgun. again it's HD not combat.

both my stocks have enough grip even with sweaty or wet hands they don't slip under recoil. i know, i have tried it out.

looks cool? seriously doubt if a BG breaks in, he's going to care if my shotgun looks cool!

first of all, my shotgun is used for HD, not for SWAT purposes or combat. over the years i have found simpler is better for me. my shotgun reflects my intended usage and what IMO will work for me. if you want to hang all the tactical accessories off your shotgun, then more power to you, but don't disrespect me or my choices. it's rather rude.

I'm with axxe on this. Personal preferance is just that. I got the shotgun I wanted and moved on to another gun purchase rather than spending on the tacticool options.

thank you Downsouth! my choices are a personal preference. nothing more, nothing less.

why someone wants to make an issue about it and try and take my words or statements out of context is beyond me.
