    Thinking about picking up a mossberg 500 cruiser

    And adding a folding stock (edit: figured out this is legal). But my question is: how difficult and/or painful is it to shoot a shotgun configured like this?

    Pistol grip and folding stock are OK on a pump shotgun. Just make sure the barrel is 18" and AOL is at least 26" in the shortest configuration.

    Use low recoil rounds and they aren't that bad. I wouldn't recommend it if you want to go shooting a lot, but if it's just a HD gun then go for it.

    I just measured my M500 and from the rear of the reciever to the tip of the 18.5" barrel, it measures 26", so pretty much any pistol grip/stock combo is fine.

    Physically fine, but a huge part of long guns is the added accuracy and quick aim with a shouldered weapon. What advantage do you get out of it?

    Okay so you have a short gun that can't aim as quickly or accurately as the entire gun, what usage are you seeing out of your truck with it that will make that a plus? Just don't let the stylish good looks of a pistol grip only shotgun in movies lead you into thinking they might be good guns in the real world. :big grin:

    But now that I realize I misread the law and I can attach a folding stock, looks like that makes it a good choice

    i have both the pistol grip and regular shotgun stock

    i prefer the regular configuration - pistol grip loses its cool factor after the first time at the range

    try some 3" rounds out of it - give your shouler a workout :hs:

    I got one of the Ebay fold-over stocks with the pistol grip for my 500. Shooting much with the stock up or down is pretty uncomfortable. It's slightly easier to carry it around in the woods, so worth it imo.

    don't attempt a stock, it isn't worth it- get two shotguns, one for trunk, one not for trunk
