SHOT HANGUNS

In 2020 shot pistols and revolver cover the range from the almost harmlessto the utterly lethal. The smallest of them are short-ranged self-defenseweapons, unlikely to harm innocent bystander through a thin wall or a loosebullet. And their short barrels means a quick shot dispersion, increasingthe probability to score a hit even with little or no skill. Their mostserious drawback is their lack of effectiveness against armor, unless youload them with specialty rounds (that are often of dubious legality).
The larger are rated along with sawef-off shotguns, meaning that youneed some paperwork in order to simply buy them. And forget carrying.

It's often the simplest ideas that works best. Designers at Eagletech probably had this in mind when they created this sel-defense weapon, which is little more than a plastic pipe loaded with a single 20-gauge shell. It can be loaded with non-lethal rounds. The most serious drawback is the short life of the weapon, the barrel breaking definitively approximatively 1 in 5 shots...
