    A sawed off shotgun is easier to conceal compared to a regular shotgun. More powerful than a pistol

    They don't understand or care about the practicality of various platforms and legal status.

    They are illegal as they are too easily concealed and powerful

    Probably the movie thing with the commando appeal or the bad guys invading a bank.

    You can get shotguns down to 18 inch barrel, but why ruin a good shotgun.

    For defense S&W governor revolver shoots the .45 long rifle or 410 shot shell.

    shotguns dominate pistol distances, and short barrel rifles mimic pistol ballistics generally speaking of course, to both statements.

    The only reason to shorten a shotgun is for illegal concealment.

    A sawed off shotgun is short and easier to maneuver and easier to conceal, The pellets come out in a wider pattern. For close range. In most states they are not legal.
