those may be a lethal toy , at very close ranges,
but barrel length precludes any potential to provide a comparatively tight group or decent projectile velocity

Potential ????

They were made for a specific application. As are most hand guns and rifles. You would not take a 22 rim fire on an ELK hunt, But you
would be hard pressed to find a better squirrel rifle.

Best place for those gauge pistols would be under a poker table. Nowhere else.

yeah, I think, your right, it might be effective at 4-5 ft if aimed at some guys privates under a table:rolleyes::oops:

I know that we're talking about shotguns but my all the time nightstand gun is a Taurus Judge for my money there isnt a better nightstand gun for my house with 3 410 SD loads and 2 410 #4 shot or 2 45 Colt rounds or 5 SD rounds or any combo I like my chances plus there is always a 9mm G43 Glock and whatever comes off my belt that night lately a Glock G20 I just like that Glock 20 and find myself using it at the range and carrying more and more but I sure wish that I could find a 6 inch barrel for it so I can run cast loads because I'm running critically low on 10 mm bullets and can't find any bullets or ammo

Grumpy I tried some Red Dot with my 170 g SWC cast loads I haven't shot it enough to really give a good report but I like what I'm seeing so far I loaded enough to run a couple mags through all 7 of my 10mm's and I'm going to make more at some different loads to really get a good test run the reason I'm doing different powders is I bought a realoading lot at an auction very cheap so I'm expearmenting with what I have between all the loading books I have if I have the powder and its listed I'm going to make a run to try because I seen this time what has happened to some powders so I'm just looking into if it gets any worse and Obiteone starts cutting off our reloading supplies
