    First shotgun i ever had was a stoeger p350 12 gauge. i never got into shooting it, I just liked rifles better. Then I got an awesome deal on one of my bucket list guns, a benelli m4, I tried some 3" magnum slugs and it was like shooting a .308, needless to say, I love shotgun shooting now.

    i almost bought an ithaca Mag 10 but decided ammo was to much of a pain to get, so thats why i picked up a Mossberg in 375 ruger. although ammo isnt much easier to buy but reloading is much easier for it.

    I kinda wonder why on that.
    I'm thinking if I need the capacity of a drum on a shotgun. a shoulder stock, riot barrel, and semi auto are the features I'd want.

    IMO, Pistol grip only shotguns are just about useless. They bring one advantage (size); but have too many drawbacks compared to traditional scatterguns.

    A buddy had a .458 upper on his AR years ago. I was likely the ultimate hog hunting brush gun.

    I’ve used the pistol grip shotguns extensively...to breach doors with the military. I can’t think of any other practical reason.

    When the zombies all get here, I want the pistol grip...on the Saiga 12...with multiple 30-rd drums.
