Man I've got to eat a stake and swing a kettle bell after watching that. Wish it was good to go in CA.

You're like a proud, well, papa, with a new baby.

And it's a beauty.

(I'm just glad no one was there to video my recent stakeout experiment.)

What loads are you running through it in the videos?

Gabe, that is some very nice 'battle axe' technique there. Thank you.

That firearm looks awesome.

Thank you for pushing the envelope when it comes to fighting weapons.

How would it work with a non-ported barrel, with everything else being the same?

Recoil alot more.

Looks great. I can't wait to get my hands on one.

This is a close range battle axe. Like any close range fight, it's always possible that bad guys can get close enough to put hands on you and/or the weapon. Stay tuned for some videos on dealing with that problem.

I'm looking forward to that!!!!

You made it look easy!
Not too sure that at my age I can make it work like that.
I am still considering this shotgun, or maybe the "patrol" (with stock), or the Glock 9mm PDW,

Lots of new niche options to consider!

I'm sad, living in Texas that I can't get one. I see a SBS stamp in my not too distant future to counter that.

We will have an option for 18" barrels next week. Texas does not prohibit this from what Texas LE tell me...but rather it is an ambiguous weapon.

No one weapon will do everything...all weapons are niche weapons.

You have a few options, the Glock PDW being a good one; but don't rule out the Stakeout. The concept of short pistol grip shotguns dates well back into history. This design has more recent roots. It was a design used by the US Marshalls in the 80s as a Witness (escort) Protection gun. Back then they used birdshot as a low recoil load. It wouldn't be my first choice; but I do think its a compromise if recoil is a concern.

Don't sell yourself short, obviously you know your limitations, and I'm not going to suggest the Stakeout shoots like a 22lr. It is a battleax; but it can be manageable

The #4 Buck is quite controllable and I doubt any pundits will want to receive a blast of that in the face at ten yards just so they can diminish its effectiveness. I have some Reduced Recoil #1 buck coming and we will see which feels and patterns best.

Then I will do some Qual Drills from various agencies with it and post the results. Maybe I will wear a tank top when filming to further upset the pundits that sport "dad-bods".

Be sure to do curls between takes for maximum pump.

Can a pistol grip be installed on the front of this? It isn't a handgun.

I don't know...we aren't going to do it. Big boy rules...look it up and then decide.

Honestly Im not sure it does anything positive for the STAKEOUT. It DOES make it fatter which is not a good thing in my mind. Back in the Scattergun Technologies days they made a version (AOW) with two Thompson SMG type grips. You can still buy both front a rear grips I even have the rear grip list in the For sale section....

For me the STAKEOUT is damned near perfect the way Gabe sells it. As for legality IDK; but in my mind that's the least thing that would be an issue. Yes there may be a cop that will say, "wow that gun would have been legal if it didn't have a front grip"; but I suspect you will find more cops that say you cant own it no matter what type of grips it has. Proving to the second bunch is simply a matter of showing them all the ATF decisions, none of those say anything about grips....

Then you could paint it yellow and green and label it "Supersoaker 1200."

Shotgun is not a defined term in the Texas Penal Code. The Stakeout isn't illegal in Texas. Since "Shotgun" isn't a defined term a PA/DA could try and convince a jury the Stakeout is a "shotgun". A good defense attorney would simply have to cite the Federal definition to the jury.
I'm sad, living in Texas that I can't get one. I see a SBS stamp in my not too distant future to counter that.

Gabe, you posted a video demonstrating using the stakeout with a sling, any guidance on where it went? Looking but not finding.

I think with the 18” barrel and > 26” overall it would be legal even in California.
