Berreta .12ga Xtrema2 low recoil shotgun prom video
I'm buying one of these things before the zombies show up.
Seriously, I've heard prices like $1,200 for this..... I just might pay that.
edit: woops, typo, "promo" not "prom". Please don't report me to the fibi, I'm not even in high school anymore!

You have misspelled "Beretta" and "12 Ga." Hang your head in shame.
Remember, kids, the caliber of a rifle or handgun is often expressed as numbers after a decimal point only because it is the measurement of the diameter of the gun's bore. This diameter can be expressed as decimal fractions of either Metric or English measurements. When you see something like ".308 Winchester," that is because the bore of that rifle measures .308 inch. When you see the same rifle labeled "7.62 NATO," that is because its bore is nominally 7.62 millimeters across.
Shotguns are typically categorized by "gauge" rather than by caliber. Nobody makes a shotgun in a gauge smaller than one (which would necessitate numbers after a decimal point.) The lower the number of a shotgun's gauge, the bigger the bore, so a one-bore shotgun would be HUGE.
When someone tells you he has a "12 gauge" shotgun, that means that one pound of lead could be formed into 12 round balls the size of the bore. A 16 gauge is a smaller bore, so the same pound of lead could form 16 balls if you made it that size. A 20 is still smaller, and the 28 smaller yet. Get it?
OK, now forget it for the smallest shotgun available, the .410, because there the decimal point comes back. Why? Because it's actually a caliber measurement, NOT a gauge measurement! So why do people call it a .410 gauge?
BECAUSE LIFE IS NOT INTENDED TO MAKE SENSE. Deal with it.

Wow. I am usually not a fan of shotguns. But that might of changed my mind.

It helps when you give the shotgun to Tim Bradley.

Ehh I'm skeptical on the low recoil. Is he firing bird shot, or 00 buck. I'd also like to see the kickback on rifled slugs. If the recoil was minimal on slugs and 00, I'd definitely love to have this in my cruiser.

That shotgun does cycle quickly. I would have to test fire before I would buy it.
Although, any shotgun would look good when you have a shooter like that doing the operating.

Holy crap that guy's good with a shotgun.
The gun itself looks nice too, but alas automatic shotguns are illegal here in California. Fucking liberal hippies.

I do not think that is an automatic shotgun. Or fully automatic, rather.

I didn't see him pumping it; I think it's semi-auto, which is illegal here.
