I've read several comments and watched several videos so I'd like to add mine even though I don't own one. I think it's a good idea and concept but I would not buy one because of the 6" barrel and wide shot spread. To me it's more of a novelty and not really a practical pistol for any serious work. However, I have sent several emails to American Gun Craft about their other 12ga muzzleloading pistol called the Bull-dog (not to be confused with their 12ga semi-auto bullpup) which is similar to the Pedersoli Howhad but in 12ga. As far as I know their The Bull-dog really isn't into production yet but I believe if MORE interest is made by us shooters in it and conveyed via emails to American Gin Craft maybe they'll start up production sooner rather then later. I for one would buy it in a heart beat. This is what I do know about their muzzleloading Bull-dog. It's a 12ga muzzleloader, has an 11" barrel, 2 external hammers and 2 triggers. To me this is a much more practical AND useful pistol and could be a nice home defense firearm. Here's a picture of their Bull-dog.
