Really? I shoot my 12" 870 with a Hogue pistol grip and fore grip combo, and have never been concerned about it.I think I am going to get one of those and use it for what it was intended. I currently have an ACE aluminum handstop on my 12" Remmy 870 shotgun but the ACE looks like a brick wall. The Ergo is more contoured and will do the same job. The ACE also cost me 6 times as much so this looks like a good value. A handstop is a MUST as your fingers sit only 1" from the muzzle when the slide is all the way forward.
