    i owned several hand guns and rifles for years but i just got my first shotgun its a single shot 12ga 3" chamber smooth bore i hear i can shoot rifled slugs out of it. but can i shoot 2 3/4 slugs thru it and is it safe or do they have to be 3" slugs?

    If it's chambered for 3", you can shoot anything UP TO 3", but nothing over 3".

    Exactly. The 3" monikor refers to the maximum length it will feed and shoot.
