Shotguns are a special type of class in airsoft weaponry. They all take the appearance of real life shotguns but not all of them will function the same or be powered by the same mechanism. The ones we offer here at Fox do function similar to how a real shotgun will fire. Depending on the brand and model you get, these shotguns can fire 3 shots at once or more. They will typically feed from a magazine which is designed to look like a shotshell and these hold 30 rounds. If you fire them from a shotgun that fires 3 rounds at once, you're going to get 10 shots out of that magazine.
