I just saw the Walter Mittie bird's head shottie that actually arouses that desire for a totally impractical gun just because it so KEWL!
Black Aces Tactical just introduced their shorty type auto for about $450. Totally useless but I want one.
The next logical step is to mate the box magazine with the "Firearm" category smoothbore autoloader for a gun with SMG type short range firepower.

Better to perish in the struggle for freedom than live to see defeat.

Had a guy in the store today, talking about doing the paperwork when he gets one. I don't want one, but hope to see it when it shows up. Ace

If pro-gunners are as murderous as anti-gunners claim, why are there so many anti-gunners still running their mouths?

A Mossie Shockwave with a brace is a handy little gun: 6 rds (12 or 20 ga.), 33Ē OAL, not hard to hit with even with the factory gold bead front sight (if you shoulder the brace).

With a red dot sight, it would be an awesome close-to-medium range weapon. Very practical for itís intended purpose, IMHO.

One thing I see on the Mossburg with a pistol grip and wrist brace is the safety would be hard to reach. Not so with the Remington.

True: manipulating the safety requires shifting your grip.

Iíve developed the habit of pushing the safety off when I first pick up the gun, and keeping my finger off the trigger until Iím ready to shoot.

Russís comments got me thinking....

I discovered that itís also possible to hold the braced Mossie in a Ďconventionalí grip that allows you to manipulate the safety while maintaining a shooting grip: You wrap your shooting hand around the Mesa Tactical adator much as you would on a standard-stock shotgun: with your thumb circling the top of the receiver and resting just behind the safety, your trigger finger on the trigger, and the other 3 fingers of your shooting hand wrapped around the front of the pistol grip. Thereís enough distance between the rear of the trigger guard and the front of the pistol grip that allows you to grip it this way.

Iíd never tried holding it that way, but it works fine. Shooting it that way isnít noticeably different than shooting it with a Ďnormalí hold on the pistol grip.

Now I like it even more....
