      Pistol grip shotguns

      Where can one purchase a pistol grip for a Rem 870?

      What is a standard length for one with a pistol grip or does the slug barrel suffice?

      Midway is a good source. www.midwayusa.com

      Have you shot a pistol grip shotgun?

      They are short... good.
      Kick visiously, and are virtually un-aimable... BAD

      Do you have to AIM a shotgun???

      Yes.

      00-Buck from an 18.5" cylinder choke barrel spreads at about 1" per yard. 10 ft... 3" group... About the average grouping for a pistol under stress. 20 feet yields a 6-7" pattern, so yes, you can MISS with a shotgun.

      Before spending big bucks on a pistol grip, shoot one first, and attempt a real-life scenario defensive shot inside 10 yards, with a follow-up...

      You'll be glad you have a stock.

      If you choose to go with the pistol grip, there are plenty of guys on here that have bought pistol-grip versions, who will happily BUY your 870 stock.

      Are you talking about grip only?
      It's not that bad. I shoot 3" slugs from mine. My buddy knocked his front teeth out trying it though so don't be a dumb ass.
      I was shooting it one handed and he tried it.

      I've got a Mossberg 500 in 20 gauge with the pistol grip. The barrel is either 18 or 18.5 inches. The kick with the 20 gauge is manageable for me.

      I find the aiming very intuitive when shooting from the hip - with my strong arm braced against my body. And I have little doubt that I could hit a 20 inch wide target at the longest line of sight distance in my house (about 25 feet) with a load of buckshot.
