"House Gun": The ultimate home defense weapon, or the ultimate Elmore-esque gimmick?Is this thing for real? This can't be real.
A sawed off shotgun makes a great home defense weapon because the shorter the barrel the wider the projectile spread pattern.
The Ultimate Firearm for Home Protection
A wide spread pattern gives you a better chance of hitting a armed intruder and stopping him from shooting you.
The problem has been sawed off shotguns are illegal. The barrel has to be eighteen inches to be legal.
We have found a way to get the wider spread pattern of a sawed off shotgun without breaking the law.
Our proprietary cone shaped eighteen inch barrel with a three inch round or oval opening provides the wide pattern legally.
It looks something like the old Blunderbuss that pirates used.
The barrels will attach to all popular shotguns
It is perfect for home protection because there is less chance of missing in the panic situation created by a armed intruder in your home. Also the projectiles will not travel as long a distance or penetrate walls like other firearms and possibly kill or injure family members, neighbors etc.
Though standard shotgun ammo works, we offer a special proprietary ammo that works better. It comes in lethal and non-lethal loads designed specifically for our barrels and home protection.
We also offer a powerful proprietary tactical light that mounts under our barrels. It aims the gun like a laser and shows the spread pattern on the target at different distances.
Most of the shotguns people have in their house for home defense are designed for hunting. It doesn't make sense to use a gun designed for shooting ducks at long distances for home defense. By replacing the hunting barrel with one of our barrels you change a hunting weapon to a House Gun. Change it back for hunting.
The deterrent factor: Imagine staring down a three inch barrel. The House Gun is the loudest shotgun ever made, the barrel acts like a megaphone. The House Gun is a hand held cannon there is nothing more intimidating.

Possiby but maybe someone is having fun with Photoshop. Regardless, its amusing and sure wouldn't want to fire that in a confined setting. I remember during the Vietnam era reading about something called a "Duckbill" which was somewhat similar. I believe the "Duckbill" was a mod to a shotgun barrel where either the barrel or a choke was slightly compressed horizontally to throw out a horizontal pattern. Supposedly with the right load it was able to nearly cut a man in half and was used in clearing operations/raids

It needs a couple of bayonets around the barrel, and maybe an ax blade on the bottom of the butt. It would be the Gwar of firearms.

Hmm, I don't know if this is serious or not, but I question the legality under the "Destructive Device" definition of US Code Title 26, Chapter 53, Subchapter B, Part I, Subsection 5845.
(f) Destructive device The term “destructive device” means
(1) any explosive, incendiary, or poison gas (A) bomb,
(C) rocket having a propellent charge of more than four ounces,
(D) missile having an explosive or incendiary charge of more than one-quarter ounce,
(E) mine, or
(F) similar device;
(2) any type of weapon by whatever name known which will, or which may be readily converted to, expel a projectile by the action of an explosive or other propellant, the barrel or barrels of which have a bore of more than one-half inch in diameter, except a shotgun or shotgun shell which the Secretary finds is generally recognized as particularly suitable for sporting purposes; and
(3) any combination of parts either designed or intended for use in converting any device into a destructive device as defined in subparagraphs (1) and (2) and from which a destructive device may be readily assembled. The term “destructive device” shall not include any device which is neither designed nor redesigned for use as a weapon; any device, although originally designed for use as a weapon, which is redesigned for use as a signaling, pyrotechnic, line throwing, safety, or similar device; surplus ordnance sold, loaned, or given by the Secretary of the Army pursuant to the provisions of section 4684 (2), 4685, or 4686 of title 10 of the United States Code; or any other device which the Secretary finds is not likely to be used as a weapon, or is an antique or is a rifle which the owner intends to use solely for sporting purposes.
Not sure how they would have convinced the BATFE that this was suitable for "sporting purposes."

1. The photo looks suspiciously like a shop to me.
2. The photo that shows the muzzle end shows it as pretty far out of round--and frankly, it doesn't look quite right. Maybe it's kinda roughly parkerized or spray-painted--but it looks like rolled-up tagboard or something to me. If you look at the bottom left fourth of the muzzle opening, it looks like maybe they smudged out the edge where it meets the other.
3. To get it to fit on the shotgun above the magazine tube, they made it off-center with the top of the barrel rising pretty far above the top of the receiver. IF their theory works out, most of the added spread will be sent upward. Realistically, if you're aiming for center mass, this means a lot of shot would probably go over your target's head. Not good.
The "Duckbill" attachment was real and was used by the U.S. military. I believe most who used it reported that it wasn't much of an improvement considering how awkward it made other tasks. But yes, the idea there was that it didn't make much sense to allow shot to spread into a cone, since if your target is at the center of the cone then some of your shot has to go up and some down, so either it's going over his head or you're peppering one poor SOB with a lot of buckshot that could be used to benefit other needy people to his left and right. Obviously, this is not something you'd use if you didn't intend to kill everything in the room.
