We finally got our hands on the Kel-Tec KSG, the bullpup shotgun fed by two, seven-round magazine tubes that took SHOT Show by storm. Here’s a quick video of our armorer shooting this awesome home-defense 12-gauge:
We found the gun quite manageable, and its compact size (owing to the bullpup configuration) makes it very maneuverable. Obviously, with 14 rounds on board, capacity is never going to be an issue. Those factors make it perhaps the best shotgun for home defense we’ve seen in a while. Time will tell regarding reliability, but it ran without any hints of a hiccup in our brief test. Our one complaint is the solid, unforgiving cheekpiece, which made putting a bunch of Hornady TAP buckshot loads through the gun somewhat punishing to the shooters’ faces. Fortunately, those faces didn’t look so great beforehand, so no harm, no foul.
