It may be your preference, but not from many operators I've served with. I remember hearing that argument when the Army went from the M14 to M16's.
When I was in the Corps, and in an MOS that used shotguns every day, none of our M590s or M870s had a pistol grip. The first shotgun that did was the Benelli, which was being phased in as I was getting out.
Never even saw an 870 with a pistol grip.
