Unlike a pump-action shotgun, which requires the user to manually slide the forend with each shot, a semi-automatic shotgun only requires the user to squeeze the trigger in order to fire a round.
With each squeeze of the trigger, a single round is fired, the casing extracted, and the next round moved into the “ready” position. This process continues each time the trigger is pulled until all of the ammunition has been used. Because this process is completed automatically, requiring only a pull of the trigger, this type of shotgun is sometimes referred to as self-loading or autoloading.
These shotguns are typically magazine fed, with magazines offering a capacity of anywhere from 2 to 30 rounds or more.
Semi-automatic shotguns are versatile and offer a variety of uses, making them very popular. They are most commonly used for home defense, hunting, target sports, and competition. Semi-auto shotguns are also a regular choice for many law enforcement agencies.
Like most firearms, semi-automatic shotguns are available in a wide range of gauges, manufactured using many different materials, and offered with a plethora of options, features, and finishes. Some semi-auto shotguns also utilize an interchangeable barrel system, giving the user additional options for gauges and barrel lengths.
