    my hand is slightly bruised :wtc:.......Still waiting for my friend to get me the shoulder butt. Is there any pistol grips that will soften the recoil?

    Yeah, pistol grip with 00 Buck is not fun. I'd post the YouTube video of me shooting mine but WMD would probably bitch me out.

    lol yeah a pistol grip and nitro slugs get a little painful after a while. I just wear shop gloves when I shoot mine.

    Just wait for the regular buttstock. If you really want a pistol grip the Knoxx Breachers Grip should eat up some of the recoil energy

    The one where the shotgun goes into your hip and you end up sweeping the camera guy?

    not a fan of pistol grips on shottys. That said, recoil isn't too bad with a traditional stock.

    Yup, that's the one. The camera guy was barely swept with an unloaded shotgun with no hands near the trigger.

    tactically I have to agree, I can't hit shit using slugs on my Mossberg 500 Cruiser. however its fun as fuck to blast away at random crap like computer cases, manikin heads etc. I'm gonna get ether a fixed standard stock with a pistol grip or a top folding stock, even with it its still very compact/good for home defense.

    but theres something satisfying about about shooting a shotgun with a pistol grip but shooting from the waist is ftmfl.

    :eek3: jesus, I'd be a little bruised after that. I put maybe 20-30 slugs and some 00 buck through mine 2 weeks ago. I was a little sore, not visible bruising or anything like that but just shop/mechanics gloves seem to help.

    #8 shot is nothing. My Glock 22 kicks more than #8 shot.

    My pistol grip/folding stock combo sucks. The stock is flexible cheap plastic, and the recoil seems to make it spring in an upward arch, which beats the shit out of my cheekbone.
