don't hate them, I just don't care to own one. It's clumsy and
heavy, what can I say. Oh yea, over priced.

The other is the new Pedersoli "Howdah" .45/,410, defined as a handgun because of its rifled barrels, so it is not a short barreled shotgun, and capable of firing .45 Colt cartridges or .410 shotgun shells. An old fashioned, newly resurrected, former hunting weapon from the days of the Raj and just really cool. Way more cool than the Shockwave.


Way more expensive than the Shockwave.

I bought a shockwave last month and put a gizmo in it that lets it feed the Aguila Minishells. I bought 100 rds of those which set me back $100. Impulse buy. All the while I need a new wash mashine.

I did a security job last year.Part of it was escorting cash to the bank.The shockwave was very easy to handle and swing inside vehicles.It made me and my principle fell much better.I am very glad I did not need to test it.

I handled a shockwave a few months back. It was offered as the shotgun attempt to be a PS90. A special case demanded a short weapon for ease of handling while exiting a vehicle.

But I took the PS90.

Default NOTHING NEW, OTHER THAN BEING LEGAL.

At the end of the day it's still a MB500. Sawed offs have been around as long as shotguns. Whatever blows your skirt up.

Actually it's a MB590, not a 500. Sawed offs have indeed been around a long time, which indicates to me there is some practical application, either real or perceived. I'm tempted by the Shockwave, but have some other firearms priorities.

I have one on layaway.
Now to find some Aguilla Mini Shells. Every where I've looked is out but Aguilla still shows them so I assume they're still making them. 10 rounds of 00 in one is a fearsome HD firearm.

You'll have to buy and install the Opsol adapter to reliably feed mini shells . . .
