Shotguns (a.k.a scattergun / peppergun / fowling piece)
A gun designed to be shot from the shoulder. It uses the energy from small spherical pellets called ‘shots’ / ‘slug’.
The slugs vary from a 5.5 mm to a 5cm bore. The shotguns have a smooth bore i.e the barrel is smooth unlike a rifle which is ‘rifled’ (read more under “Rifles”)
