The Shotgun is most popular with hunters, but they are also used by the military and civillians for defense. Shotguns are notorious for their power as well as how dangerous they can be when their barrels are sawn nearly completely off, a felony under the National Firearms Act. Shotguns can be double-barreled, where the gun has two triggers and two barrels, available either stacked upwards or side-by-side.
