I have been shooting a shotgun since age 12, a shotgun was the first gun I learned to shoot. In South Georgia (Thomas County ) My family owns plenty of land there. We hunt quail and pretty much any other 4 legged rascal. All our shottys have the regular stocks. I've always used a regular stock on all my shottys but I recently purchased a 12ga Maverick 88 for home defense it has the regular stock on it and it came with a pistol grip too. Is there any use for the pistol grip other than it being used for a range toy?
