Is it as compact? No. But by retaining the pistol grip I still have some semblance of controllability, not to mention keeping decent capacity (6+1).
But as time has went by and several friends of mine slowly began singing the praises of these midget fire breathing beast, I started seeing the benefits.
One of the biggest benefits is they give you the closest legal thing to an SBR Shotgun you can find without the un-Constitutional registration and “tax stamp” and in the age of the ATF Stasi, who doesn’t like giving the finger to the man when it comes to inalienable Gun Rights!
I am a huge believer in the Shotgun for Home Defense/CQ engagements and having one or two of these babies tucked away in the right spot could never hurt!
