We’ve already mentioned potential issues with the Kel-Tec KSG’s barrel switch switch. Namely its position and operation. In this video, the officer is more than a little tentative in his changeover from one barrel to the other. By my clock, it takes him some seven seconds to sort his shit out. Training will cut that way down, but it’s something to think about—when thinking about such things might not be to the gun user’s advantage. At :24, the officer short strokes the KSG. Other commentators have flagged Kel-Tec’s checkered past in regard to quality control. That aside, is the plastic fantastic short-barreled shotgun more prone to short-stroking than ye olde thunderstick? Survival-minded minds wants to know.
