Cruiser shotgun

Hello Mas -

I've seen plenty of ads for pistol-gripped, stockless shotguns.
These would seem to be useful in close quarters, but it is hard to imagine using this type of shotgun with sighted fire.

Are these types of shotguns useful for defense purposes, and not just as a door breaching tool?

Thanks,
Butch

I saw a guy lose some teeth shooting a pistol-grip shotgun from line of sight. Couldn't get there in time to stop him. It can be done, but it's very tricky and technique intensive.

There are a handful of people who can shoot the things very well -- the great Mongomery County, Ohio Sheriff's Department instructor Terry Campbell comes to mind -- and one of my clients used one to kill a guy a few feet away who was coming up on him and his partner with a loaded .30-30. An East Coast business owner used one to win a shootout with multiple armed robbers a few years ago.

That said, I don't recommend them. Any place you can store a PGO (pistol grip only) shotgun, you can store one with a folding stock...and if there's time to go for a long gun, there's usually time to unfold the stock.

Just one guy's opinion,
Mas
