A shotgun (also known as a scattergun and peppergun, or historically as a fowling piece) is a firearm that is usually designed to be fired from the shoulder, which uses the energy of a fixed shell to fire a number of small spherical pellets called shot, or a solid projectile called a slug. Shotguns come in a wide variety of sizes, ranging from 5.5 mm (.22 inch) bore up to 5 cm (2.0 in) bore, and in a range of firearm operating mechanisms, including breech loading, single-barreled, double or combination gun, pump-action, bolt-, and lever-action, semi-automatic, and even fully automatic variants.
A shotgun is generally a smoothbore firearm, which means that the inside of the barrel is not rifled. Preceding smoothbore firearms, such as the musket, were widely used by armies in the 18th century. The direct ancestor to the shotgun, the blunderbuss, was also used in a similar variety of roles from self defence to riot control. It was often used by cavalry troops due to its generally shorter length and ease of use, as well as by coachmen for its substantial power. However, in the 19th century, these weapons were largely replaced on the battlefield with breechloading rifled firearms, which were more accurate over longer ranges. The military value of shotguns was rediscovered in the First World War, when American forces used 12-gauge pump action shotguns in close-quarters trench fighting to great effect. Since then, it has been used in a variety of roles in civilian, law enforcement, and military applications.
The shot pellets from a shotgun spread upon leaving the barrel, and the power of the burning charge is divided among the pellets, which means that the energy of any one ball of shot is fairly low. In a hunting context, this makes shotguns useful primarily for hunting birds and other small game. However, in a military or law enforcement context, the large number of projectiles makes the shotgun useful as a close quarters combat weapon or a defensive weapon. Militants or insurgents may use shotguns in asymmetric engagements, as shotguns are commonly owned civilian weapons in many countries. Shotguns are also used for target shooting sports such as skeet, trap, and sporting clays. These involve shooting clay disks, known as clay pigeons, thrown in various ways.
Looking to get rid of a 12 gauge I have owned and never shot. I might have put through a single round for experience, but after shooting my 20 gauge a lot, I prefer rifles and handguns. Not willing to negotiate on price, original box not included with shotgun, but a bit of ammo included. I have...
Brand new, never used matrix arms over the receiver side saddle for mossberg models 500, 590 and shockwaves. Side saddle sits right over the receiver and bolts onto the factory holes on all models. Comes with 6 shell holders which you can add two more on the other side or remove some as each one...
I've decided the BPS is the only pump for me so my 590 build is up for grabs. It has an 18.5" barrel + a standoff device. Upgrades include Magpul furniture and a 6 shell sidesaddle with a Sig Romeo 5 on top of a picatinny rail. I have fired this thing, but it has less than 50 shells through it...
Looking to trade my 12ga H&R Pardner Pump for a Ruger 10/22.
This is the ‘Protector’ model. It has a 18.5in barrel and includes a rail for mounting a red dot or other optic.
Some surface wear on the receiver but no other issues noted. The shotgun functions flawlessly and I just put a couple...

Just received from Beretta, completely new and unused.
From Beretta website:
“Plate with 30 front sights, selection of the best front sights that you can find on the market. All are ready to fit on Beretta shotguns ribs. Diameter 2,6 mm.
**Some of the sights are different colors**“
* The duracoat job is bad, thus the low price (no trades). Probably not a bad idea to strip and cerakote it.
* 7+1 magazine extension, 18" barrel, and a Remington breacher choke.
* Mechanically it is great and the round count is low (around 150-200), has a volquartsen extractor and a green...
1980 Remington 870 Wingmaster with desirable “corn cob” forearm. Barrel has a Modified Cylinder choke and is not adjustable. Beautiful bluing. New soft recoil pad. A couple minor blemishes in the wood (see photos). Action is nice and tight/solid.
$500 cash, VenMo, money order, CashApp, or...
Picked this up recently on a whim and I like where the safety is on the 870 platform better. This has seen zero rounds and has just sat in the box.
Doing a catch and release with this one. $475. Just want what I paid for it. Transfer at either Pantel Tactical, Sound Loan, or Precise Shooter...
I have a Remington 870 12ga for sale. It is pretty clean, no big scratches, the butt pad is still nice and rubbery. This has a 28" ribbed barrel. The action cycles nicely. All in all good gun. It comes with a handful of chokes, both extended and flush. I can throw in a choke wrench and a trigger...
