That's right there is why they make fold down stocks, the rest is for tactical show.

IMNSHO- about the only REAL use for a pistol gripped shotgun is where I am in a VERY tight space (driving a vehicle) or need to be able to conceal a shotgun (under a jacket). Despite the urban legends, the shot pattern from even a VERY short barrel is NOT the size of an open beach umbrella- you DO need to aim that sucker.

Yes, have fired enough that I CAN hipshoot and come pretty darned close to where I want- if I am within 25 feet of my target. at 25 yds.........

As far as the "that's gonna leave a mark"- gent who was my best man had just acquired a nice German drilling- sxs 12 g, and a 9.3x 72R rifle barrel beneath. Took to the range the first time, loaded all 3 barrels, and found the weapon had a badly worn sear- when he pulled ONE rigger, all 3 barrels fired. He was standing behind his pickup, with the tailgate down. Kicked him INTO the bed of the truck.

I've never tried shooting left handed, but i don't think that is the correct way to do it.

We need video of that. I will give you my first born child, and his/her's first born child too. Then my (your) grandchild's second born.
