The Hitman may be just a movie, but Chuck Norris is a real-life all-around all-American good guy for real. I saw this movie several years ago. The cover art is what attracted me to it. I rented it just to see Chuck weild that over/under shorty. I don't think it's a sawed-off. It looks like it's made short. It got me thinking about the possbilities of a square-formation (2x2) quad-barrel pepperbox shotgun with 10" or 12" barrels and a grip like an Ithaca Auto & Burglar Gun. It could have either a single selective trigger and a rotating firing pin or dual selective triggers and over/under-type firing pins (as if two over/unders put side-by-side). Are those called "falling firing pins?"

Anyway, is this feasible? The slim over-under would be better for concealment. I've read about detectives and such using compact concealable shotguns like whipits and whatnot (like the Ithaca 37 Stakeout), but these are even more compact than whipits because of the dimensions of the receiver.

I also thought of a triangular (1x2) tri-barrel pepperbox shotgun with exposed hammers that have extensions so they can be cocked all at once, two at a time, or one at a time.

I know about the Serbu Super-Shorty, but it's just not the same. I'm talking specifically about compact side-by-sides, over/unders, and pepperboxes.

Remember when I mentioned the double-barrel blunderbuss of demented doom? Here's a pic of a non-firing replica of a double-barrel blunderbuss (scroll down to see it). Since it's a replica, it doesn't qualify for demented doom. :P Also check out the pic of a flintlock ax rifle replica.

Actually, being a police design, some models had a tear gas sprayer mounted in the center that could be fired by the forward trigger. Though a 37mm beanbag or baton launcher would be my preference :twisted:

I remember seeing that sawed off over and under when I was like 13 and thinking how cool it would be to cut down my Grandpa's Citori to be like that. I still think a sawed off o/u would be more practical then a sawed of sXs...

That movie came out in 1991, so I deduce that you're in your mid-20s.

When I was at Knob Creek, there were Class II & III dealers and I saw short-barrel over/unders, side-by-sides, and pumps -- including but not limited to: the Wilson 00 Witness Protection Model (Remington 870-based) and the Serbu Super-Shorty (Mossberg 500-based). I also saw a Daewoo USAS-12 of demented doom! :mrgreen: I don't recall seeing an Atchisson Assault Shotgun or a High-Standard M-10A, though.

Before going out and dropping the pretty sizable amounts of money for an AOW, check local and state laws. The CCW law in Ohio states that you may not conceal a shotgun.

In that case, I'd probably go with a snub-nose Remington 870, Choate Mk.6 stock, Pachmayr Vindicator forearm (and pistol grip when not using Choate stock), and 14" barrel w/fixed Modified choke. Do they make 14" barrels with vent ribs? The Pachmayr Vindicator pistol grip would make a snub-nose 870 ideal for car defense. The Choate Mk.6 stock would be for home defense.
