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!
Therefore every serious gun you own for “social issues” needs a light on it.
Especially your Home Defense Shotgun.
Not sure the price point on these, but if they are to be comparable to Streamlights Racker I am guessing somewhere in the $100-$125 range.
I could care less about a laser on a shotgun and I hope they offer a model without it because if that is what is going to drive up the price I will just stick with the Streamlight Racker currently in use on my Remington 870.
