Firestorm!

I think it's a bad idea in the form of a relatively low-numeric-valued kenetic energy from a 9mm.

As far as a shotgun, if the slug's multiple fragments act with as much force as 9mm's as certain buckshot does, then I think it is viable... but not for me.

In the end, another new item that draws on previous innovations and perhaps is nothing more than such.

To me, "Automatically compensates for shooter error" is a way of saying "no need to practice."

Don't get me wrong, I like exotic rounds but more for fun (fruit/veggie carnage).
I'd only use them for defense once they've been proven & I ain't gonna be the beta tester for BGs :laugh:

It's not a shotgun round, but here is a new round that I have actually been trying to get my hands on. This one looks impressive.

Figures. I'm not known to be the fastest guy around :)

In the second video, they state they are planning on making that round in a shotgun slug.

These AP-20 shotgun rounds are bad ass!!!

Something tells me they are not available in the US. I'd buy some in a flash if I could.

I checked a few places online that sell the exotic shotgun rounds, couldn't find the AP-20 rounds anywhere else, just the one Mike linked.
