Semi Automatic Shotguns


At A Glance: Semi Automatic Shotguns

Semi automatic shotguns are a great tool for beginning shooters and self-defense. If you need to fire off multiple rounds of shotgun pellets in a short amount of time, semi automatic is the way to go. Semi automatic shotguns have become popular only recently, as new budget-friendly choices have hit the market. With a semi automatic shotgun, you don't have to reload ammunition by hand. This can provide a serious advantage in a self-defense emergency scenario. The cycling is powered either by gas (using high-pressure gas to cycle the ammunition) or recoil (using kinetic energy to cycle). While it is not recommended to shoot with one hand, it is possible to shoot a semi automatic shotgun with one hand, and it has a lower recoil than other shotguns. They can be heavier due to their more complicated machinery, and they are more likely to jam - so make sure you maintain your shotgun.
