ⓘ Garden gun

Garden guns are smooth bore shotguns specifically made to fire the.410.360, plus the No. 3 bore, No.2 bore, No. 1 bore - rimfire shot shells, and are commonly used by gardeners and farmers for pest control. Garden guns are short range shotguns that can do little harm past 15 to 20 yards, and they are relatively quiet when fired with rimfires, compared to centrefires. These guns are especially effective inside of barns and sheds, as the low velocity small shot will not shoot holes in the roof or walls, or more importantly injure livestock with a ricochet. They are also used for pest control at airports, warehouses, stockyards, etc.
