Exactly! Do the math.......grains, or even an ounce, vs 5,000lbs +.

When you are stuck bumper to bumper in multi-lane city traffic all that "run over 'em" bravado sort of goes out the window when urban riots break out.

Not when the truck is large and powerful enough.

I wonder how many Smart Cars The Burbinator can push............ Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm.........

I stay out of Inner City areas where people riot.

Occasionally groups of morons (most recently seen affiliated with (O)B(C)LM) like to link up hands and block freeways.......................... Not a good long-term career move.

If you’re unaware enough to be stuck in traffic in a riot in these modern times.....you prob shouldn’t be fooling around with a loaded firearm.

Unless you’re one of the ‘mall ninjas’ out looking for trouble.

Exactly Rooster. They don't just spring up like lightning bolts out of the blue, they start small and grow, over an entire afternoon usually (when the po-po don't step on it firmly at the beginning).

I finally got one of these today. I have watched hickock45 and some thunderanch videos on them.

I thought it would be worthy of carry while fly fishing for bear protection. Smaller than a full sized gun, but more easier to hit something than a 44 mag.

At the end of the day, it may be a toy that shoots lots of coke cans, but for now...I will shop smart, shop S-Mart and support Mossberg's Ash versus the Evil Dead 590.

Consider getting the Shockwave in 20 gauge. Less blast, more controllable and fast to get back on target. I know the selection of ammo is more limited than in 12 gauge, but 00 or 1 buck is still a good choice. I had mine out last weekend and was pleased.

I just have to toss in my two cents. I have been "into" defensive shotgun since '96 and have a SW. I agree with other members it is, on it's own, very difficult to make good hit with. I went ahead & used a small piece of P rail to attach a Crimson trace Railmaster to upper left side of the front barrel band lug. I sighted it in to be center pattern @ 10 yds. I made some 5/8 oz loads, light on 700X & the Mrs's blew through them, laughing as the Wet Wipes canister bounced hither & yon. I ponyed up for the Talon grip wrap like Gabe uses & it is worth the money. I have installed G.R. sights for eyeline aiming. It is a little clumsy but you get the hits. BTW - With the thick wall SW barrel, it is possible to modify the O.E.M. front sight to screw & epoxy bed on without welding

Again; this might be a fun toy to play with; but I don’t know of any LEO agencies that are going with this configuration over a “traditional” stocked police/riot gun.

That is because they are not prohibited from having a properly stocked shotgun with a 14" barrel like commoners are. The right of the people to keep and bear arms has been infringed.

i have looked at the shockwave and it is an attractive unit. however i will stay with my 3 pistol grip 18" barrel shotguns. the business of potentially blowing your left hand off is worrisome. the normal 18" tactical shotgun is not a bad deal, IMO, long enough, short enough, balanced enough, goldilocks, just right. there is little need to take the shotgun towards pistol configuration, as cute and appealing as it is. OTOH need has nothing to do with it as the guys have to come up with new models to drive sales. shotguns are like puppies. they are hard not to like.

These short barreled firearms are not for everyone but if you are capable of handling a chain saw, using a sledge hammer or changing a tire on a full sized pick-up you are probably sturdy enough to safely use one of these once you get the technique down. The fact that you have to pump it before it can fire again makes shooting your front hand very unlikely, though it can happen, just like when my neighbors kid chopped his foot in half the first time he used an ax.

UPDATE:

I revised this thread from long ago because I just bought one of these things (though mine is the Remington 870 version.) It is actually easier to use than I imagined. The reason is the Shockwave grip. Unlike the pistol grip which is terrible on the wrist and stings the web of the hand, the Shockwave keeps the wrist at a natural angle and is painless...


I wonder how it would do with, say, a Knoxx Breachers Grip (recoil reducing), if that combo exceeds the magic 26" limit (dunno).

Update on my Shockwave.
I did a form 1 on it and turned it into a SBS.

Has anyone done a direct comparison between the Mossberg Shockwave and newer Remington V3 based TAC-13? I would think the latter would overcome many of the disadvantages of the Shockwave except for the price tag.

I wonder if it would be legal to put the shockwave grip back on it occasionally in case you wanted to stow it in a suitcase during a trip or for whatever reason needed it to fit in a small space. Then convert it back when you get home.

Probably, since it is already "trapped" at the "higher-scrutiny" level as being an NFA item.

Of course, before taking that trip you have to tell the BATFE, in writing, that you will be taking that NFA item someplace out of your state, and where, and how long.........

Both the Shockwave and the Remington TAC-14 suck pretty badly compared to the TAC-13.



Whatever else they are, they are fun to shoot.

I might get a a Tac 13. It looks like fun and would fill a niche but it would never become my bedside shotgun except when I am traveling.

Aw c'mon, never say never. Personally, I think it would do really well in that role with a SBA3 brace:
