I agree spruce. In a real shtf situation that you had to rely on killing game to eat a 18 inch gun with a stock would hands down be the best choice. sure you can kill a deer at 25 yards with a good rest out of a blind but what happens when the deer aren't around and the grouse, ducks and geese are flying by. Good luck wing shooting with one. It would take more skill then I have. I guess one train of thought is if shtf ever did really happen the law wouldn't count for much and a guy could pretty easily slap a real stock on it though.
