I have looked at them before, but I don't own one.

So . . . . they can be had for a $5 transfer tax?

I have fired one of the shortest barrel models from Serbu (based on 870).
Safety Harbor stuff is well-made in my limited experience with their .50 BMG uppers.
These shorties are a literal blast to fire once or twice
As with many pistol gripped 12 gauges, they can be painful to shoot.
Cool = yes
Practical = no (imho)
Fun = in small doses

Maybe try a Mossberg with no stamp required?

Here is a Serbu like I fired.
The trick is in what one emphasizes.
We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves happy.
The amount of work is the same.

Having fired short shotgun they can be nasty

brothers, it's like Magnum revolvers

Many folks figure if they own a .44 magnum they just have to shoot full house magnum pressure ammo through it
they are very pleasant even in short barrels with .44 special ranges.

Most who buy SBS guns figure they just have to run full house 00 buck and yes they will punish you
run low base field loads ?

Not so much guys

These things are close range phone booth guns
size of shot don't matter at 20 foot or less
no, you don't need a magnum loading either.
