Pedersoli .45 LC - .410 Howdah Pistol

This Howdah pistol is not a new design, but a close copy of an Ithaca double barrel that was discontinued with the passage of the NFA in 1934 which taxed short barreled shotguns.
It has a 1 in 35" twist to aid accuracy with .410 shotshells.
It's made for the .45 LC, but the chambers were cut long enough for the .410.
His video review is quite long, but he shows that it can shoot fairly well at long range.
The shorter video reviews offer a quick glimpse of the gun's potential for multiple uses.

It's an interesting new twist on the old Howdah design, or as Ithaca called it, an "auto gun".
