I have been working a ton of overtime and want to reward myself.
I don't know why, but I have always wanted a pistol grip shotgun (Mossberg Cruise style). I know they are useless, and I already have plenty of serious shotguns...but they look fun.
I have also been lusting after the new 10/22 TD. again, I need another .22 like a hole in the head, but it just seems cool.

As a playtoy, which one would have the most cool factor?

Happy friday

You can't beat a 22lr for a fun day of shooting on the cheap. Many years ago I had a Rossi pump 22lr and a buddy of mine and I went black bird hunting with our 22's. One of the most fun days I can remember shooting. Heck, even if you just shoot crackers, Tums, tin cans, ect with a 22 you can still end up having a lot of fun. I say get the 10/22 TD.

The 10/22 is a lot cheaper to play with. The shotgun is more practical for defense.

Since you are looking for something fun, the 10/22 seems like the right one.

I'm really leaning towards the Ruger except for one thing...once it's put together its just a 10/22. Hard to imagin it will compete with my tricked out m&p22 for range time

I just can't come to grips with shooting a pistol grip shotgun and fun being in the same sentence. The 10/22 would be more fun-- easy to shoot, cheap on ammo-- that's the ticket.

THIS ONE:

KT PMR-30

The Takedown is FREAKIN AWESOME, but no comparison to the PMR-30!

http://i203.photobucket.com/albums/aa310/gunguru364/MISC%20Rifles/2012-05-22_16-32-10_974.jpg

If you have a ton of overtime like you said, then the ultimate would be this:

"Cool" is in the eye of the beholder. What's cool to you may not be cool to me. The KT PMR-30 is SO COOL that it's in a class by itself:wavey:


Good luck in your search. If you need advice we are always here.

I might be the odd guy out but nothing gets the stress of the work week out like beating myself up with a few rounds of 3" 00 buck through my pistol grip Winchester 1300. If you end up not liking the pistol grip on the Mossberg you can always swap it out for a regular stock.

Tough call. Never really hurts to have another .22 or shotgun around. I'd go for the Ruger. I think it's pretty neat.

Man I love my Mossberg Crusier. It's been guarding my home24/7/365 for over 15 years. The pistol grip might be useless,I took mine off but the the gun itself IMO is worth every dime.

You're not the only one. Magnum revolvers work for me. For this reason I say 12 gauge.

if you already have shotguns, why don't you just put a pistol grip (I gotta jones for a birdshead style myself) on one of them, and then buy the ruger?

From your list I would buy the 10/22 TD. Myself, I bought a PMR-30. I would also suggest other Kel-tec weapons for fun such as the PLR-16 .223 pistol (very loud with huge flash) or the incredible Keltec KSG Shotgun (bullpup) that fires 14 rounds of 2 3/4" 12G.

the 10/22TD is a 10/22 like any other, except it breaks in half and doesn't accept most 10/22 stocks.

I like this idea! Unless all your shotguns are designated for purpose.

I bought this tec-22 for a "just for fun" gun;

And it sure has been! At the store they had a hi-power on consignment for cheap, so it came home too!

I would probably opt for the 10-22, but in regular configuration or the heavy target model.

The take down model does not turn my crank- for me, would serve no special purpose, but to each his own.

Wound up finding a beat up Mossberg 500 20g with a broken stock at an unbeatable price. Sandblasted, duracoated it, put a speed feed pistol grip and fore end and cut the barrel to 18.5. Looks wicked, and a laught riot to shoot. With the speed feed pistol grip, recoil is negligible and dosnt torque the wrist. Breaking clays on the bank and in the air from the hip is a hoot!
This jaded gun nut has found a new challenge.
BTW yes it's useless..who cares

It's easy to replace a standard Mossberg stock with the pistol grip if you want to just give it a try. Lots of very slightly used pistol grips for about $15 at gunshows, draw your own conclusion.

The Draco is FUN! More fun than plinking with a .22.
Get one while you can, it's the kind of thing the democrats would love to ban. Also, because it's legally a pistol, some of us can carry it concealed (unlike a rifle). It's accurate enough, and for home defense not only would it stop an intruder wearing a vest, it would even set him on fire.:cool:

Oh man would you look like the bad guy if you shot down a mugger with a Draco! If you really ever produced a concealed Draco, be prepared to be shot at by all the CCW permit holders around you.

I've always thought that style of grip looks very good, but it just doesn't make much sense because the hand doesn't look to be positioned very well for the amount of recoil it will have to take. A more vertical grip seems a lot better suited from a practical standpoint.......but, that one does look cool as hell!

Noooooooope, not really!......:whistling:

I tend to think the vast majority of permit holders would only react to a genuine threat. If the weapon is being used in a lawful fashion, and is perceived as a threat, then that person probably is a liberal, unarmed anyway, and couldn't do a damn thing about it! :rofl:

Realistically speaking, however.......there is probably a permit holder that would shoot.....I can imagine a few cops might, as well.......but the probabilities vs the possibilities are far from what you are imagining here.....

10/22's and Mossbergs are fun and dependable and great choices.

I'll add two more fun guns that are inexpensive to buy and to shoot.
Mosin Nagant 91/30 can be had for about $100 and 7.62x54r milsurplus ammo is dirt cheap. Most were refurbished.

Yugo SKS 59/66 can be had for about $300 to $400 And is one of the best old semi auto rifles on the market. Some of which were never issued because of the AK47, With tons of accessories. 7.62x39 ammo is reasonably priced compared to many other calibers.
Neither of these two are civilian rifles made to look like Military rifles these are the real deal and built like tanks with all parts still being readily available.

I own the 10/22, the Mossberg Crusier, Mosin Nagant,and the Yugo SKS, and there all different as night is to day. There all great fun guns though.

You would be surprised! It handles recoil very well. The more vertical style of pistol grip transmits a lot of torque to your wrist. This style of grip allows the gun to (for lack of a better description) buck in your hand without causing any pain or discomfort. Sort answer...it moves around a little, but dosnt hurt at all. Think, colt SAA plow handle grips. Not as secure as an 18 degree set of hogue finger groves, but it turns e recoil into movement, not transmits it into your bones and ligaments!!

When I wanted a fun plinker gun I went with a draco pistol, its more fun watching water bottles explode and fly into the air with a larger rnd, then watching a bottle barely move with a .22 and then watching the water leak out the hole. I like shooting both, overall .22 ammo is cheaper.

Saiga shotgun? Now that's cool! Plus it uses mostly off the shelf AK parts, very easy take down and even very easy to detail strip, and fixing it if you had to, would be a breeze. You can't say that about most shotguns a lot of them have more parts then a cuckoo clock.

I'm with gun guru, that Mini Draco would be awesome, especially if you find that everything out there is too close to what you already have. That's how i wound up with my G26 - i had a Beretta 92 on layaway and saw the baby Glock in the showcase, so i decided the Beretta was awful close to the Ruger P85 i already owned, and got the Glock instead.

I agree with this completely. The birdshead grip is MUCH better for managing the recoil. I owned just about all the PG options and today the only one I have is a birdshead.

Nothing brings the grins like shotgunning and AKs. A good old pump 12g like my old Defender is cheap and fun. Yep it's brutal with stout loads or even strings of bird shot, but it's still fun on the cheap. An AK is just fun. That 7.62 round is just about perfect in that design...not too much recoil and just enough thump.
