1) If you are going pistol grip, consider the Rem due to safety position (by trigger, not on the tang).
2) Go Knoxx if you are going pistol grip. I've got one (SpecOps) and can shoot it one handed all day long.
3) You are going to want to throw all energy- particularly sound and flash in one direction. That thing on the end of that setup is going to blow out your ears and eyes.
Hate to say it, but that thing is Mall Ninja fodder.

Mossberg 12 Ga. Special Purpose/Pistol Grip/23" Cylinder Bor for Sale at Buds Gun Shop $353.00

Im looking at this, for the price, name.. and of course looks... I think it's badass looking.

Can anyone tell me what the point of that barrel is, other than looking badass?
Useless unless your an entry man on a SWAT team. You need a stock to be able to hit what your aiming at. This is ok for putting the gun right up next to the lock and blowing it apart and then transitioning back to your M4 carbine.

For an HD shotgun I went with a Winchester Defender model that I had the stock taken off and put on a pistol grip and a pistol grip pump. Then I put on a side saddle of 6 more rounds and a tac sling. The other is a double barreled shotgun.

Every shot a 12ga without a stock? Not very usefull in MHO. To each his own, I rank those in the mall ninja section.
I shot the Mossberg Road Blocker and the thing actually didnt raise up at all when I shot it. Just kicks back a little... I'd like the pistol grip for home def. purposes..

I thought about a Knoxx stock but seem's like it'd just take away the ease of the pistol grip... It'd be easier to shoot faster/more acurate without a stock... I think anyways but I've never had to use one like that so Im not sure.

but the two layers of material with a gap keeps from blowing your ears off like most muzzle breaks, so if you want a muzzle break, it wouldn't be a bad one. It would also as suggested allow you to fire it with the muzzle touching stuff.

If you want that go and buy the pistol grip with a foldover stock or an adjustable stock.

I shoot them quite often and find them very useful. It is a matter of technique and practice to get and stay proficient with one.

Those that say they are useless have either never shot one or tried to shoot it like they saw in a movie. Neither is a basis for expertise.

Sorry, I own/owned one. For the same purpose as the OP. But grabbing it all groggy and in my boxers I find that its way more likely to stay on target with a stock of some sort. But if you like it than more power to ya, I just trained myself in the easiest simple way to protect my fam and home.

Which was probably a smart move for your situation. I'm on the range every other week and get free ammo to practice with. Most folks don't have those luxeries.

My point was that there is a technique you can use to make them easy to shoot (not from the hip) and with practise you can be very good with one. Pistol grip shotguns are short and easy to manuver inside a house, which is a great benefit.

I had a mossberg 590 with the pistol grip. After a week i took the pistol off and installed a regular stock. I hated the pistol grip. It was not the recoil. It was the fact that it was USELESS as tits on a bull.
