It is in Russian, but man, footage speaks for itself. Video titled "The worst self-defence shotgun".


 The Bandayevsky Shotgun "RB - 12" is probably one of the worst guns for self-defense, but at the same time one of the best for collecting 


  • Magazine loading can be done with at least 3 hands 
  • Rounds can move in magazine so they are needed to be hold in place
  • Before loading magazine a special catch should be moved out of the way
  • Follower inside of this mag can also move around and it is made out of wood material
  • When magazine is inserted, shooter must press special pedal during operation in order to engage catch on a magazine with specail hook inside of this wonderful shotgun and same pedal is used for mag release
  • All rounds left inside of mag will drop out if magazine will be pulled out/released
  • During shooting a wooden button on pistol grip should be pressed
  • Very long leight of pull on a trigger
  • In videos made by creator of this weapon all people that were given his rifle to shoot were swearing 
  • Gun can self-disasemble during shooting
  • Can jam in "forward" and "rear" positions
  • Stock will unfold anyway when you run the action, and there is no way to fix stock in folded position during shooting
  • 50 made, number 14 on the video.

      There are many who feel that the 5.56 NATO is a superlative rifle round. Much has been said about larger alternatives to 5.56, such as various 6.5mm and 6.8mm rounds among others. Less has been said about smaller rounds. Off the top of my head, I can recall that there was a German 4.6x36mm round, used in the HK36, and the British 4.85x49mm round. Neither of these rounds managed to gain widespread acceptance. My knowledge of the voodoo that is ballistics is somewhat limited, so I'm uncertain as to whether these failures were caused by flaws with the rounds themselves, or because they were below some lower limit of effective bullet size, beyond which performance decreases rapidly. Could we see a resurgence of these concepts in the future, or do they represent an evolutionary dead-end?
