I was surprised to learn that Canadians can own short barreled shotguns that Americans can't, at least not without going though a process similar to that needed to transfer a machine gun.

Now if we could only take silencers off the NFA list. There are so many things that are needlessly illegal.

See all that muzzle flash? That is wasted energy that would be much more efficiently used propelling the shot in a conventional length barrel. Factory shells are not designed for such short barrels. Legal or not, a pistol length shotgun trades off a lot of velocity for a big increase in noise and blast. recoil is also considerably more severe as the weight of a foot or more of two barrels plus the stock has been removed. These things are gimmicks designed to impress the uninformed.

Any good modern semi-automatic handgun will out preform a double barreled handgun in ANY caliber in a real world shootout. If you must have a short shotgun, something along the lines of the Mossberg Shockwave is eminently more practical and holds three times as many shots.
