Shotguns – one of the most powerful hand-held firearms civilians are allowed to own. Often underestimated, as it can be used in so many ways by just changing the ammunition: birdshot, buckshot or slugs and other variants.
Of course, a shotgun has limits, you don’t see too many of them on the Long Range Precision course, but don’t underestimate how accurate a slug can be. In this case, we’re looking at the Benelli M4 shotgun in TFB’s Photo Of The Day.
