Might have to get lucky and take it off a dead army guy and hope he doesn`t re-animate as you take the gun from him
This has the SAME range for all the "special" rounds as the Ak47 actually, so while it may be silly to carry into combat because its bulky and can`t pull off a long range shot the fact that the ammo is flexible would make it useful. If you were going into a situation with lots of enemies this would compliment the M16 well by being able to deliver more firepower at the same engagement range, such as being able to take on APCs or 2 people at one, it`s mostly just a heavy firepower weapon.
How many of our White house staff are you prepared to lose America?
I don`t see why they need a drum magazine with thirty million rounds. You want an automatic shotgun? Fine, just use a normal magazine- it`s a hell of a lot easier to handle.
And really, why is automatic fire necessary? Even if there`s a mechanism to minimize recoil, you`re still not going to hit anything beyond point blank with that.
lotsa things to like:-shotgun-semi to full auto firing-decent range-lots of different ammo types-durable
Still, I`d need to see more in terms of field tests. I`m not convinced that it would be significantly useful as a primary weapon. I could be wrong, but I get the impression that it will be useful in clearing rooms but not too much else.
This gun and the Metalstorm thing I saw two years ago...wow.Metalstorm only has one moving part;The bullets leaving the barrel.
I did say that it`s semi-automatic, I`m not implying that the SPAS-12 is an automatic shotgun, but it`s not like every shotgun in the world is a single-shot pump-action weapon more suited to hunting than combat, as the video seemed to insinuate.
My father worked for the US government and was an avid military historian, so I was taught about weaponry and warfare from a very early age. And my uncle works at a firearm museum in Idaho, so we `borrow for testing` and go out shooting every summer. And I lived in a very dangerous third-world country for several years. So while I do not have actual combat experience, I can safely say that my knowledge is not from videogames.
And I like the Kalashnikov series because of their amazing reliability, unlike the earlier models of M-16.
Good stuff almightybob! Cracked me up.
Is this from your extensive combat experience, 13-to-17-year-old? Or from Counterstrike?
Shotgun Designed.Now For the Sniper. <3
The problem with even an automatic shotgun is that it is short ranged. In an urban environment, there is plenty of cover to avoid the shot, and an assault rifle has the range and accuracy to quickly incapacitate the shotgunner. Great close up, but when you`re up close a hit is a kill, so you don`t really need automatic fire.
Now, a much better weapon would use a two-stage munition. Launch a shell, which bursts to spray shot, keeping a much tighter spread over long range.

Anyway, I wanna hear VikingGuy`s opinion on this.
Just kidding, Canada!Your Maple Leaf is beautiful and your bacon is delicious.
Ashley Williams would be proud.
They need to put that weapon in a first person shooter soon.
