A question, goes without saying, I guess.
Are shotguns in a class of their own, being not rifles and no optics.
Not asking for a friend… :roll_eyes:

Using slugs, it would have to be considered an open (rifle) division firearm. I’ve seen many a shotgun fitted with an optic. But to your question, no. There are no shotgun divisions.

OK, thanks.
I recently purchased the Kel-Tec KS7 and wanted to try it out using 1.5" slugs.
Read it would cycle them fine, so I thought why not give it a try at some targets.
Reason for asking,
Cheers,

Am very familiar with buckshot of several sizes.
But I need to check this shotgun out first. Slugs to start.
Then I’ll purchase several add-ons, one of which will be the adjustable choke which is hard to find right now.
If the firearm performs well with chokes (shooting for 3" grouping at 25 yards) then I will be very satisfied with the performance.
And by shooting at the monthly targets, hopefully get to enter some as well.
Cheers,
