SINGLE SHOT AND SEMI-AUTOMATIC SHOTGUNS

Derived from hunting weapons, shotguns don't fire a single projectile,but a swarm of smaller projectiles. The barrel isn't rifled, because the projectile swarm can't use the stabilizing effect of projectile rotation.
The pump or slide action is used to feed in a new cartridge, but it needs two hands for use, so semi-automatic systems are also used. Shotgun have many advantages. Their large size and big bore give them a significant psychological effet, and the spreading of the shots (particularly with short barrels) makes them "area weapons", making targeting easier. Their main drawbacks are size and weight, low ammo capacity, short range and poor armor penetration. The last two can somehow be offset by using specialty rounds, but they are often of dubious legality and generally have no spreading.
Common variations are shorter barrel and pistol grip (sometimes with a folding stock) for concealment and use in enclosed spaces, like a car. But they make the weapond difficult to contol, particularly with the larger bore size.
