Pistol grips without stock make a shotgun much shorter and easy to manuevre but they also make aiming
much more difficult. As one of the readers of the blog wrote it took him one year of training to have the same results
with Remington 870 with pistol grip without stock as he had with shotgun which had pistol grip with stock.

We all have seen such shotguns in movies and these pistol grips without stock make shotgun look so tacticool and we all want to have one. But without additional training you will not be able to use it effectively. Some say you don’t need to aim your shotgun because it has more than one projectile (for example 9 pellets in one shell of buckshot) but you need to understand that in close range they will not have enough distance to spread and pattern will be very tight.
