    I just bought a new FNH SLP shotgun that I want to have a pistol grip stock on it. Anyone know of a quality make for this shotgun?

    In my experience, pistol grips are not necessary, even on "tactical" shotguns. Instead of wasting money on a new stock, put the money towards ammo and range time, and really learn how to run the gun before you spend money making modifications that may not actually improve anything.

    The FN SLP is available with a pistol grip stock so you should be able to get one as a part through an FN dealer.

    Here is a link to the FN website showing the SLP with the factory pistol grip stock.

    So? He didn't ask your opinion. He asked if you knew where he could get one because *he* wants one. You just couldn't help yourself, though, could you? Someone presses the button and half this forum does the monkey dance. If half you folks' *opinions* were kept to yourselves and this forum stuck with facts and real info instead of non-asked for opinions being tossed at folks, most of the arguments this place sees wouldn't happen.

    Oh, that's my *opinion*. Nothing more. <deleted>

    Rand, while advice certainly wasn't solicited, I'm aware of no rule on the forum stipulating that members are not allowed to offer insight based on their experiences.

    I'm sure the OP is enough of a grownup that he can read my post and take or leave the content as he sees fit without you having to get defensive on his behalf.

    No, there's no rule on it, Justine. There is, though, the longstanding argument that comes up whenever someone decides to fan the flames of this topic for no real good reason other than the desire to toss in their opinion. You, as a mod, know that. How many arguments have we seen on this topic? Did you *have* to jump on it this once? Could you not have simply answered the question, if you had a valid answer that is, and simply skipped the topic just this once?

    And yes, as always, I have already received a warning on the topic. Not surprised, but a little disappointed.

    Wow. How cute. No one has ever attached an extraneous "e" to the end of my name in an attempt to imply that I'm a girl. Verily, sir, your insult is so original and devastating that you have dealt a grievous blow to my fragile self esteem.

    Of course, now that I've addressed your insult, I'm sure you'll make an excuse to try to cover it up. Let me guess, your finger slipped when you were typing? That always seems to happen when people who have a personal problem with me send me an email or post.

    The only one fanning flames here is you, Rich. Heck, the OP isn't even asking about a straight up pistol grip, rather he's asking about a full stock with a pistol grip, so I'm not sure why you're so upset about it.

    My experiences shooting shotguns under practical circumstances have shown that there isn't a huge advantage to be gained by installing one of those stocks on the gun, and that perhaps the stock isn't worth the cost. Nowhere did I pass judgment. I simply made a suggestion.

    What? Discussions on traditional sporting stocks vs. pistol gripped full stocks? Not many. Certainly there's not all that much controversy there, as either is a functional and fine choice. My suggestion was simply due to the fact that spending the money on an additional stock might not have much of a net benefit. I'd certainly had made the same recommendation if his question had been reversed.

    Project much? I didn't "jump" on anything. I made a simple post with a simple opinion, and evidently you just couldn't handle that for some reason.

    As pointed out above, other variants of the shotgun come with the tactical stocks, and they can probably be ordered from FN, or failing that, Midway or Brownell's.

    Perhaps you ought to consider that an invitation to re-examine how you choose to interact with people with which you disagree.

    FNH has had that photo on their website for well over two years. I tried to get one last Christmas but they weren't available then. To the best of my knowledge, they haven't released it yet. They just keep slipping the release date. I gave up calling the parts department.

    With a little effort from you, assuming you are up for it, an ATI Remington 1100/11-87 can be adapted to the SLP. My buddy put one on his Winchester SX2. Details here on my site.

    FWIW, I find the pistol gripped stock does little to improve my aim. I do find it easier to manage the gun while doing non-shooting things, such as emergency reloads, malfunction drills, select slug, etc....keeping the shotgun high in the shoulder pocket, one handed, is more difficult for me to do with a conventional stock (especially by the 3rd or 4th day of training).

    YMMV
