I will admit my experince with tactical shotguns is limited, however I have handles all of options listed above, and personally believe that a "standard" stock gives you the most amount of control. <br><br>The absence of a buttstock makes it difficult to stabilize the firearm while shooting in the "grip hand" without the aid of the opposite hand. This would be particularly important should you lose the use of your opposite hand. A pistol grip alone just doesn't cut it for me. It becomes a huge "pistol" and much too unwieldy.<br><br>Pistol Grip/Folding stock guns are not much better than pistol-grip-only shotguns. I look at it this way: If it folds up enough to be out of the way, it isn't very comfortable/stable when opened. If it is comfortable/stable when opened - it probably doesn't get out of the way enough when folded.<br><br>Pistol Grip with Buttstock would be a good compramise. If you like the feel of a pistol grip, but want the control of a buttstock I would suggest this form. The only problem I have is if you ever need to change the grip you have on the gun while in a fight, you may have to actually remove your hand from the grip itself. With a conventional stock you may only need to adjust your grip as your hand is on the stock already, and not interfered with by the stock passing by your wrist.
