How do you shoot them? Went to a gun show with my father-in-law yesterday (I thought he was nogunz for life because of a DV misdemeanor conviction years ago. Turns out, he had a misdemeanor for violating the restraining order, but the original DV charge was dropped). We looked at some options for home defense, decided to sleep on it, and he wants to go back today to pick up a pistol grip Mossberg like the one shown here, impressed as he was by its compactness and maneuverability (and price).

I've always been curious. How the fuck do you properly hold these things?

  Short answer: You don't. A stocked shotgun is effectively smaller in use, if you're trying to sight down the barrel, because you don't have to hold it out in front of you to avoid hurting yourself with it when you fire it. Otherwise, there's trying to fire from the hip, which is action movie material.

I hold mine with one hand on the grip and the other on the pump. I fire from the hip so I look like a total badass, sights are for suckers.

I've shot quite a bit of PGO.

Honestly people seem to flip out over recoil being dangerous for the shooter, I don't really know why. As long as you work your way up, it shouldn't hurt even if you put a hundred shells down. The only thing I found was pretty nasty was 2 ounces of turkey 3" magnum shells, webm related. Out of this shotgun, they have the recoil energy and velocity of a 458 Win Mag. It doesn't hurt the wrists, it just stings at the palm skin.

Regular magnum slugs and buckshot really don't do a whole lot. Using an 18" shotgun with PGO, you can hold the foregrip and aim like a normal shotgun, as long as you know what's coming, it's impossible to get hurt. I've shot hundreds of shells in an afternoon, high brass stuff. Not being toughguy, if you hold it right it just doesn't do much.

Do I suggest this for "serious" use, like self defense? Fuck no. It's slower, harder to aim right, etc. However those Forgotten Weapon boys may be absolutely wonderful for information about obscure guns, but they really are doing it wrong when it comes to shotgun recoil. I have no fucking clue how they think it's even uncomfortable when shooting reduced recoil ammo.

I also don't really like "bird's head" grips like that. I like grips more like >>102941. Might be personal preference, but when shooting anything more than birdshot with "bird's head" grips, the gun will often slip up and smash the trigger guard against your trigger finger. I'd much rather have the control of the regular pistol grip than have to reacquire the grip.

Here's a buddy of mine shooting 3" buckshot, he'd never fired a PGO gun before that day. A few minutes with some birdshot shells, some pointers on the grip, and he fired boxes of 3" without discomfort.

Here's 2oz 3" magnum out of a 590 with a stock (but held like a PGO), if you think a longer barrel might make a difference. To be honest the extra weight does soak up all the bite that the recoil has.

What is the penalty for getting caught with a shotgun with a sawed-off barrel?
Federally, the base penalty for any violation of the National Firearms Act is 10 years/$10,000 fine. You can also receive an enhanced fine for tax evasion for willful violations in addition to the base penalty.
States also have their own penalties for illegal possession of a short barreled shotgun. Montana, as an example, has fines that go from $200 to $1000 and from 5 days to 5 years in jail depending on the severity of the offense and the person committing it. https://www.atf.gov/firearms/docs/atf-national-firearms-act-handbook-appendix/download

  Some review videos complain of the Chiappa 1887 having problems breaking open, like how many reviews of the Chinese Norinco 1887 lever action shotgun having ejection problems. Maybe they needed to be broken in after a few hundred shots? But it's shocking where these modern clones are compared to a ca.1900 Winchester 1887 that works flawlessly with many types of modern loads.

Ithaca Auto & Burglar Model B Double Barrel Smoothbore Pistol
Produced between 1925 and 1934, the Auto & Burglar Gun was pitched as just the thing for a homeowner or traveler to keep strapped to their nightstand or steering column to ward off burglars or bandits, while finding an audience with the private security forces of the day as well. Fitted with a single brass bead sight, with a solid rib between the "SMOKELESS POWDER STEEL" and "MADE IN U.S.A." marked barrels, and both sides of the frame decorated with a pointer in a field over the "AUTO & BURGLAR GUN/ITHACA GUN CO. ITHACA, N.Y." markings. Checkered forearm and pistol grip stock, with the latter showing a very sharp angle and pronounced web knuckle for recoil management. http://www.rockislandauction.com/detail/64/3470
Estimated Price: $4,500 - $7,000 - sold for $3450

For nearly 20 years, Mark Serbu’s SUPER-SHORTY has been the standard-bearer among the super-compact shotgun set. Built from either a Mossberg 500 or a Remington 870 that started life with a pistol grip, the S-S is considered an “Any Other Weapon” (AOW) under NFA law, meaning a $5 tax stamp instead of $200 as with other NFA items. I’m really not sure if most people buy these just for screwing around and having fun or if it’s for more practical purposes, but I do know that the S-S is capable of filling both roles. . . http://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/2015/08/jeremy-s/gun-review-serbu-super-shorty-shotgun/

This sample is built from a Remington 870 and, if you’re familiar with that shotgun (and you probably are), you’ll be right at home with the S-S. Same safety, same trigger, same action lock at the front of the trigger guard, same loading gate, etc. This 6.5″ barrel version holds just 2 shells in the tube — whether 2.75″ or 3″ — while the 13.75″ barrel flavor holds 4.
