I had a Maverick 88 that came that way. I found that by keeping it just under face level, I could point well enough to keep everything more or less in the black, but still ended up putting a real stock on it for other uses. But if you aren't cavalier holding it, a pistol grip cruiser is usable at very close range. Never tried further that fifteen yards with mine. Considered getting a Shockwave before, but the cons outweighed the pros in my personal demands along those lines.
Bullpup shotguns are an option right now, but they'll probably will be banned after or with the Shockwave variants.
18" 6+1 Rem 870 with pistol grip.
14" 5+1 Mossberg Shockwave with bird grip.
18.5" 14+1 Kel Tec KSG
Bullpup shotguns are stylistic abomination, no self respecting operator would be caught dead with a bullpup shotgun.
This is the only acceptable bullpup shotgun, giggle switch included.
What is that hideousness monster called?
Here is a 73 + year old shooting a Shockwave 12bore with Aguala slugs.
Not easy but doable for sure.
So much for excuses ?.
I'd say portability and concealability
IIRC, concealing one instantly turns it into an SBS ?) I don't have one, had fun shooting a friend's at the range. I prefer a stock, even on a SBS. An 18" barrel and a stock is fine with me. But hey, I'm not going to say, " because I don't like them, I don't want anyone to have them", that view is too much like the opposition's.
I agree. Having a choice is a good thing.
I have been told this as well, I would keep mine in my truck but in AL a gun in a vehicle is considered concealed. So putting it in the truck may make it a SBS, also if that’s true I’m not sure how I was supposed to get it home.
The Shockwave apparently has some grey areas that I’d rather not get into, so mine stays in the house, ready to dispatch animals in my yard.
Actually concealing anything that is classified as a "firearm" to include the Shockwave and TAC 13/14 turns them instantly into an AOW- Any Other Weapon. AOW's are still controlled under under NFA laws.
And the ones I used in the military were shorter than 26". I do find that my Shockwave is very useful for it's intended use.
Yup; AOW. I knew it was an NFA item, AOW would make more sense.
I did not recall correctly.
For starters, recoil really isn't bad. It's at 44mag range IMO. It's very heavy
Hipshooting it is easy and took about 10 rounds to get comfortable with, seriously. Shot loads are easier but slugs aren't hard either.
It won't replace my normal shotgun, but it's a great addition to a HD arsenal, they are wayyyyyyyyy handier than you'd think.
How reliably does the Tac-14 feed the minis? I have an Opsol adapter in my 88 shotgun to feed minis and they haven't made one for Remington.
Since I took the photos above I've installed a little flashlight, for which those two inserts were designed - a Photon keychain light. Not all that bright. But very handy for up close ranges such as one would use it in home defense, and it's right there under my fingers to press when holding the forend.
A touch shorter? Even if the person shooting one fully extends there arms like in scaatylobo's pic (which isn't how they're normally fired), there is still less barrel. Can you seriously stay you do not see a difference in discrete transportation, storage, and/or concealment between the two? Seriously? What about when it comes to carrying, storing, concealing, deploying, firing either from a vehicle or other confined spaces? The overall length of a typical shotgun is 39.5" =/-. The overall length of the shockwave if just over 26".
They come in different 'flavor
