    I don't think I would want to Mexican carry one of these.

    What do you do if you want the stopping power of a shotgun, but also want the convenient of shoving said shotgun down the front (or back) of your pants? Shotgun revolver. Boom.

    This crazy DIY monstrosity apparently isn't the first shotgun revolver, but it is the first one authorities in Taiwan found that can shoot standard 12-gauge rounds. Think about that. 12-gauge rounds in a revolver.

    I'm not quite sure why there's a stamp on the side that says "Made in USA" either. [Liberty Times via Evreydaynodaysoff via Neatorama]

    Homemade shotguns are about the easiest homemade weapon, since no rifling is required. Homemade submachineguns are about the second easiest to make.

    Also it sort of looks like it has the Beretta symbol on it. But anyways I saw this posted somewhere else and it said the street value was something like $15,000 (I don't remember what the exact value was). Maybe this is proof that gun control works. I mean they are still around in the hands of thugs, but they are prohibitively expensive. If that thing goes for $15k on the street, then what does a quality gun like a sig, glock, beretta go for? Most people can't afford to shell out 20k for a pistol. Flame away.

    I wanna see them shoot it twice. The second time won't have the same ignorance factor.

    Interesting... It appears to say "Made in U.S.A.", or do my eyes deceive me?

    Looks like they super glued it to try and find prints.
