The Shotgun – a Multi-Purpose and Versatile Platform

When looking for various firearms, most have a fairly defined scope of operations. A long range, high powered rifle is specifically tasked with hitting targets at great distances. A semi-automatic pistol finds its purpose in close quarters encounters, such as law enforcement and personal protection. Rimfire rifles reign supreme in varmint control and target practice. Within each category, there are obviously some varied applications, but in general, you don’t hunt deer with a Glock nor do you plink rodents with a .338 Lapua tactical sniper rifle.

The Venerable Revolver

A revolver is defined as a repeating handgun that has a revolving cylinder containing multiple chambers for ammunition and at a barrel for firing. The rounds may be fired by cocking a hammer manually for each shot or by pulling the trigger rearward repetitively to advance the revolving cylinder. These mechanics are known as single-action or double-action. Single-action revolvers can only be fired by cocking the hammer and then releasing it with the trigger. Single/double action revolvers still have an exposed hammer that can be cocked, facilitating either style of shooting, while others enclose the mechanism entirely in the body of the firearm, making them double-action only. It comes down to a matter of preference mostly, but having the single-action capability is typically favored by people who hunt or shoot competitively, as it take far less effort to drop the hammer with the trigger than having to pull the trigger through both phases of the action.

Preparing Shotguns for Sale or Pawn

There's a reason why many pawn shops have a large assortment of shotguns and other types of weaponry. Weapons are often one of the best things to pawn or sell; they have known value, they are usually fairly expensive, and you don't usually need them in your day-to-day life. But because a shotgun is a weapon (even if it's a collector's item), you need to do some special preparation.
