There is no way a KSG could stand up to a military trial. The first thing the gun has to do is fire 5,000 rounds without breaking or hanging up. The plastic would start melting around 2,000 rounds. I shoot a few rounds of skeet with my Maverick 88 a couple times a year to stay sharp with it. Shooting low recoil ammo by the time I get to station #3 the barrel is hot enough to burn me. What is going to happen to the KSG in a military trial shooting buckshot? The gun is meant for people who want something no one else owns. That is why Kel Tec never manufactures many of them. They want to keep them rare for that guy that wants to be the only kid on the block with a KSG.
