[R]iding shotgun, with a shotgun! ~ Christopher Bridges
[L]eaning out a window, with a cocked shotgun. ~ Marshall Mathers

A shotgun is a firearm that is usually designed to be fired from the shoulder, which uses the energy of a fixed shell to fire a number of small spherical pellets called shot, or a solid projectile called a slug. Shotguns come in a wide variety of sizes, ranging from 5.5 mm (.22 inch) bore up to 5 cm (2.0 in) bore, and in a range of firearm operating mechanisms, including breech loading, single-barreled, double or combination gun, pump-action, bolt-, and lever-action, revolver, semi-automatic, and even fully automatic variants.

  • You only roll with tough guys. You are not one; just because you went to Walmart and bought a shotgun.


  • I will frickin' kill you. I'm going to pull out a goddamned shotgun, and blow out your damned head off! Do you understand? You little worthless piece of crap!
  • I've got lyrics, but you've ain't got none. If you come to battle, bring a shotgun!


  • Mossberg pumping, shotgun dumping, and drama means nothing. It's part of the game.
  • Got the shotgun, got the handgun. Got the paper in my Nike box, burn the haze up. You better raise up, before you get your punk ass shot.
  • Mossberg pump; I'm riding shotgun literally.


  • Buck's got the shotgun, 50's got the MAC. Spida's got the sweeper and you're bound to hear it clap.



  • A hunting gun, like any firearm, is a dangerous thing, and you need to tread carefully around it.

But the most dangerous kind of shotgun is an unloaded one.
"It's okay, take it, take it. It's not loaded."
In fact, it is with an unloaded gun that hunters most often kill and injure themselves and their mates.
Keep that in your mind.

  • Ukrainian: Мисливське ружжо, як і всяка вогнепальна зброя, — річ небезпечна, і біля неї треба ходити обережно.
Але найнебезпечніше ружжо — це ружжо незаряджене.
— Нічого, нічого, — беріть, беріть, — воно в мене незаряджене.
Так от з незарядженого ружжа найбільш вбивають чи ранять мисливці і себе, і своїх товаришів. Майте це на увазі.
