    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.

    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 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.
