Wouldn’t it be cool if you had a shotgun that was the size of a pistol…….wait they already exist???? Well we should try it out. 🙂
Shotshells for use in handguns have long been made by loading handgun cartridges with shot rather than single bullets; they are commonly called “snake shot” or “rat shot” indicating their main use for pest control. Standard rifling designed to stabilize bullets scatters shot limiting its effectiveness to very short range.
