    Me too. The M4 is actually pretty nice. Actually saw a coupe of Marines carrying them down range.

    Does this bigger skull of Africans comes from some urban legend?
    I guess it does because I haven't noticed any difference but I also don't normally go around measuring skull sizes either.

Is either of the two more suitable for a beginning shooter, or is this a personal preference thing?
    The location of the safety is different as well, Mossbergs have theirs on the top rear of the reciever where you operate it with your thumb rather than at the back of the trigger guard. I like the Mossberg safety...

    Honestly, the pistol grip with no shoulder stock makes shooting 3" magnum shells highly painful, and mine is getting the shoulder stock soon for this reason. But the pistol grip WITH a shoulder stock makes for a very controllable weapon with any load.
    And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".

    Have you given any thought to the BLACKHAWK!® SPECOPS STOCK™?

    Thank you I was actually going to ask about pistol grips. So on there own on a shot gun not a great idea, integrated with a but stock is good to go is what you seem to be saying.
    Is there any advantage to a pistol grip with out the but stock?

    It reduces a ton of bulk if you're just using the shotgun for breaching doors.

    Does this bigger skull of Africans comes from some urban legend?
    Craniometrics (head measuring) was a part of early physical anthropology (done using skull collections in Germany). The results showed the caucasian skull as having the largest cranial capacity (big surprise), but the specimens were measuring caucasian adult males against other adolescents. Later in life, that scientist (Blumenbach) fell in love with a black woman and said that variations within a race are bigger than variations between races (basically why race is no longer used in anthropology). Thus he was able to move away from his older work without saying that he was wrong. At any rate, old craniometrics data isn't really taken seriously regarding intelligence etc except by some white supremacists.

    EDIT: crap, this is in the Armory. To keep it on topic, I'll propose that because craniometrics are no longer taken seriously, all races are equally vulnerable to shotguns, even the skull.
