This is a disambiguation for all sawed-off shotguns in the Just Cause Game Series.

Definition and purposeEdit

Historically long-barreled guns were literally sawed shorter to make a smaller weapon that could be used more conveniently from horseback, or hidden under a coat.

  • This sort of thing was done during the american civil war by cavalry units.
  • This was commonly done in east Europe during the first two world wars by resistance fighters, because there was a shortage of handguns in civilian ownership. There were many long barreled hunting weapons in civilian ownership in the countryside.
  • It has also been done by common criminals during the second half of the 20th century in countries where handgun ownership was heavily restricted.

Doing this to a shotgun (or rifled gun) greatly limits the effective range, but also widens the ammunition spread angle for shotguns.
