    I think the sights on that thing are pointless…

    Not if it is using grenades or slugs.

    The proper caption should be “die, furry. Die”

    Been playing too much Bad Company, thought that was a Saiga at first.

Ya, it only holds 5 rounds and is only 20ga…

    Those are ridiculous: Make meat sauce out of people in seconds flat.
