Default Ever heard of the super shorty?

Super Shorty < SPECs on site

Anyone ever shot it before? Have one? Is it worth the money?

$750 for a three shot (two in tube one in the chamber) 6 1/2" barreled 12ga pump? If you are looking for extreme close range power in a compact package, WTH, go for it.

Limited usefullness, IMHO. More of a toy unless you have some specialized situation.

I guess it's cool for what it is but I'm having a hard time finding a use for it. I'd want more then 3 shots in any defense weapon. I have a 16ga SxS that I love...to bird hunt with, it would be my last choice for self defense.

It's cool looking. But if I wanted a real short shotgun, I'd cut off a cheap coach gun and go with two rounds.

That thing is about as usless as tits on a boar hog. For that money you could buy a compact pistol in large caliber of a good name.

Wouldn't one of those revolvers in .45long colt/.410 shotty serve the purpose almost as well with more shots? It would be good for fertilizing some floor though.

Their production is majorly backed up right now. The Keg12 is the same concept made by a former employee of Sebu. As of last week even the Keg was a year wait...

You could always get some of the 1 3/4 inch mini-12 gauge shells. The elevator would require some modification to feed them, but that would give you an extra shot, or maybe two extra.

This is one of those things you own because of the cool factor and you have some extra money. It did look awesome in Bad Boys II when Gabrielle Union deployed one during the intersection shoot out.
