I recently got a foregrip on my Mossberg 500 Persuader Tactical Tri-Rail, just for ****s and giggles.

I placed it towards the back so that I can still stabilize the gun but rack the slide normally.

Is this a bad idea? I held it and it's a hell of a lot more comfortable than not having one.

With a forward pistol grip, people tend to torque when they pull back and put stress on the rails and receiver.

Ditto - you will damage the action bars over time and will not realize it till you notice the weapon is not as smooth as it once was. Vertical forends are a Tact-fool accessory that damages your weapon.

Whatever floats your boat! I believe that putting a VFG on a pump shotgun is dumb, though.

In addition to these issues you will move the muzzle off target when operating the forend and slow your responses to multiple target issues.
