    If the bullpup wasn't two pounds heavier than the 870 it would be no contest, but that and the awkwardness of the bullpup still leaves me wondering which is better for Zombie/Home Defense... Anyways, I'm bored so here is a pic.

    IMO anything you can shoulder and aim is going to have an advantage regardless of weight, neither would be my first choice but if it was all I had I would choose the bull pup.....

    When i was young I had a pistol grip on my M500. Now that I have grown up I realize how limited the practical use is for such a thing. I will take a full stock any day.

    The one pictured looks so much better than the new one (that thing is hideous to say the least)

    I usually enjoy seeing people shoot their pistol grip shotgun. When the shotgun recoils and smacks them in the face it puts a big grin on mine. Of course I could have told them about the recoil but they wouldn't listen anyway, I try to mind my own business. I would rather keep the action as far away from my face as possible though.

    Bullpup - by far in my experience (you will notice I didn't say opinion, I said "experience").

    Wouldn't you practice point and shoot with a pistol grip, rather than trying to raise it and sight down the barrel?

    The Breachersgrip has the recoil reduction spring so it doesn't hurt as long as you keep your wrist straight. I got it just to try it out. I will probably buy the conventional stock version called the Compstock as I also prefer a full stock. The HS10B is awkward to reload but its compactness and semi auto capability makes for a great CQB shotgun. As long as you can take care of things with a 6 + 1 capacity. Here is a link to a short vid.
