Article nameEdit

Shotguns come in a wide variety of forms, from very small up to massive punt guns, and in nearly every type of firearm operating mechanism. The common characteristics that make a shotgun unique center around the requirements of firing shot. These features are the features typical of a shotgun shell, namely a relatively short, wide cartridge, with straight walls, and operating at a relatively low pressure.

Ammunition for shotguns is referred to in the USA as shotgun shells, shotshells, or just shells (when it is not likely to be confused with artillery shells). The term cartridges is standard usage in the United Kingdom.

The shot is usually fired from a smoothbore barrel; another configuration is the rifled slug barrel, which fires more accurate solitary projectiles (though some slugs can also be fired from smoothbore weapons).

Therefore there is no possible way for there to be a shotgun in SW, please rename your article to something more appropriate.

  • There are shotguns in Star Wars. They may not be real-world shotguns, but they are shotguns nonetheless. Get over it. IFYLOFD (Floyd's crib) 21:51, August 9, 2010 (UTC)
    • Much like the fact that blaster rifles don't seem to have any rifling in them. jSarek 00:56, August 10, 2010 (UTC)
      • They ain't no shotgun, not as we know them anyway, I'm of the same opinion as on that. But they're the closest thing to them as they blast multiple energy beams just like shotguns shoots multiple pellets. So for lack of a better word lets keep shotgun as the article name for now, until we have a better name. Maybe Blaster Shotgun could be used as a name, like Blaster Rifle and Blaster Pistol.
