    I am looking to get a Supernova for 3 gun. I'm torn between the pistol grip or the comfortech stock.
    Opinions?
    Thanks

    Very few top-level 3 gunners use a pistol grip on a shotgun.

    Most of the 3gunners around here don't use a shotgun w/a pistol grip.

    What type of 3-Gun? USPSA? IDPA/ Defensive?

    I assume you mean a stock with a pistol grip not just a pistol grip only.

    Generally Shotgun comes down to how smooth / fast you can load the shells during the stage. If you can load faster with a pistol grip go for it. I run a USPSA/ IPSC 3-Gun match and the only shooters with a pistol grip stock at my matches are the Saiga-12 shooters.

    I would just shoot it however it comes and see if you like it or not before changing it.

    We have had a couple shooters run with a pistol grip only. It is a pretty good workout running 25 round stages pistol grip only. :)

    Forget the pistol grip stocks. They do not do well day in day out in shotgun courses. We learned that early on with pistol gripped 1100's and Super 90's in the 80's.
