Can this be done?

Walmart sells the plastic ones that shoot a 12 guage shotgun round that is actually a flare. Its the same principal,right? Firing pin will make it go bang?

I know the Israel army uses cool metal flare guns that are almost exactly like the ones they sell at walmart but are metal instead of plastic. Can you shoot a shotgun round out of one and still maintain a reasonable spread?

I wouldnt trust the pastic walmart one, but the concept behind it is interesting. Why dont gangsters use these as single shot shotguns instead of sawed offs, etcs? Its cheap, efficient, etc?

Most flare guns shoot a different length shell that is shorter than the standard 12 ga 2 3/4 shot. I thought about this as well. It could be dome with a metal flair gun if you load custom shorter rounds.

Don't do it in plastic guns, you can buy Eley 2 1/2" 12ga light target loads that have light primers that will work in the metal guns. just make sure you hang on lol

Probably because gangstas can get a real shotgun for not much more. :p

If you saw the barrel so it's equal to the length of the shell, they work ok. If anypart of the plastic gets hit by shot, orange pieces of sharp plastic go flying everywhere, not very fun........................ Or so i've heard.
