When it’s 1925 and gun control laws bar you from having a sawed-off shotgun, what do you do?

You get Pedersoli’s Howdah Double Barrelled Pistol, that’s what.

Back in the 1920s, sawed-off double-barrelled shotguns were all the rage for protection when traveling. Well, gun control laws killed them with huge tax stamp fees for owners.

Recently, Ron Spomer Outdoors on Youtube shares a video about one unique pistol that brings back that classic weapon. Chambered in .45 long colt and .410 bore shotgun shell, this 10″ rifled barrel pistol can shoot either for protection. Ron tries it out on targets to see if small game would be possible with Pedersoli’s Howdah Double Barrel Pistol.

Gun laws are obsolete, even before they’re signed to paper. This classic styled weapon is another proof of that with minor changes like the rifled barrel to skirt ridiculous anti-gun laws.
