Aside from being one of the most prolific weapons of the modern age, the shotgun is also one of the most versatile guns you could ever own. You can hunt just about anything with a shotgun, use it for home defense, military or police operations, partake in various sporting applications such as skeet or trap shooting, or just have a ton of fun shooting at the range. Ammunition is readily available and relatively inexpensive compared to other specialty calibers.


Shotguns utilize a range of firearm operating mechanisms, including breech loading single or double-barrels, pump-action, bolt-action, lever-action, semi-automatic, and even fully automatic variants.  Shot of various sizes is usually fired from a smoothbore barrel, and the rifled slug barrel generally fires the more accurate, solid projectiles. Shotguns can also be accessorized for various applications, including optic mounting systems, custom stocks and grips, lights, and slings.


Shotguns come in a wide variety of sizes generally referred to by a unit of measurement known as the “gauge”.  Some of these include 16 gauge, 20 gauge, 12 gauge, and 10 gauge; the smaller the number the larger the bore diameter. Each of these tends to favor a particular application – hunting small game for example, might be done with a 20 gauge, whereas home defense might be best suited for the 12 gauge, and so on.
