Uncle – FWIW, the OP you linked to has edited my original comment. I made reference to constructive intent and the potential legal issues of possessing both the 14″ configuration as pictured and a bone-stock Mossberg 500 in the same place.
My final line was, “Neat. Pass.”
I have since commented asking them to simply remove my comment, instead of editing it to say something I did not say.
“Constructive intent” wouldn’t play into it, as all the items in your scenario would have a legal use. Constructive intent only applies when there is no legal use for a combination of items. Thompson proved this in their case with the Contender setup with both a long and short barrel and a pistol grip and a stock–and only one receiver.
Better than a pistol grip. I put one on an 870, fired one magazine through it, and my mitt hurts from thinking about it. Now, hip-firing a shotgun with the regular stock isn’t bad.
Looks like a handy device for things going “bump” in the night.
I’d prefer a double with hammers or even a single, but that’s just me…the 14″ toob just looks so much handier for being inside a dwelling.
My opinion, a double negates 2nd hand needed to pump, which may be struggling with the noisemaker, and if you can’t pump it why have more than one shot or two? Have a pistol for backup.
Just my theory. The whole “bunker down and call 911″ doesn’t work when one has a munchkin to secure, in likely direction of nighttime noise, and therefore, one hand may be securing them, so other with a large blaster may be a better idea.
