Shotgun Ammunition | Shotshells

Shotguns are extremely popular hunting and home-defense guns. They are also known as a scattergun or peppergun. Shotguns get their name from the type of ammo used called "shot." Ammunition used in most shotguns consists of a shell or cartridge filled with small pellets or "shot."

Due to popularity, we carry different types of shotgun ammo. Your Houston ammunition sales headquarters will explain to you that the shot pellets upon leaving the barrel of the gun, spread or scatter. Shotguns are used in hunting situations where a small amount of ammo is needed to hit a usually fast moving target such as a bird or small game. In defensive, military or law enforcement situations, shotgun ammo is used in close quarters combat situations for maximum impact.

Stop in and learn more about shotguns and shotgun ammunition from your Houston ammunition specialists at Jim Pruett's Guns and Ammo in Houston.
