    Anyone have a pistol grip shotgun with a sling ? any pics ? I'm thinking of getting a mossberge 500 cruiser & mounting a sling. What are your thoughts ?

    Sure, heres mine. Thought? Some people like them and some people hate them. I like them because I believe a sling is to a long gun, what a holster is to a handgun. If I have to go do something with both hands, I do not want to leave my shotgun leaning up against a wall or vehicle or what ever. Some dont want the liability of a "hang up" but to me its less of a liability and more of an asset. Opinions vary of course.

    I have a sling on my M1S90, but it has a full stock with the pistol grip. very useful.

    I had a sling stud mounted in the side of my mossberg 500.

    Reference the pistol grip.

    My Mossberg 500 came with both a full length stock and pistol grip only option. With the pistol grip it makes the gun shorter (obviously) and for some it looks "cool" to have a short, pistol-gripped shotgun. However, it sucks for recoil control, accuracy, and usability by other family members such as my wife.

    Those last three things are a must for me in a tactical shotgun and I will not sacrifice them for shorter or "cool".

    Just my 2 cents...

    On edit: OBTW, I do have a sling on my 500.
