* The official reason the BigBad of the StevenSeagal movie ''The Patriot'' is arrested is for sawing the barrel off of a shotgun. This was because the authorities didn't have the evidence needed to arrest him for the criminal actions of his 'militia group', and didn't know that he had stolen a biochemical weapon and was planning to use it, but ''did'' have concrete evidence that he had made an illegal modification to a firearm.

* One UnSub from ''Series/CriminalMinds'' used a shotgun to shoot at female pedestrians he pulled up next to at traffic lights. In this case, it's shown why it's practical for him - it's easier to aim at his victims.

* ''Videogame/{{Warframe}}'' has the Tigris shotgun, which fires both barrels with a click of the fire button and packs a hell of a punch even at a fair range.

* Sawn off shotguns are [[UsefulNotes/AustralianGunPolitics are banned in Australia]] since the firearms legislation was revised in 1996 in the aftermath of the Port Arthur Massacre. However, some sawn off shotguns still remain in private hands due to not being registered even prior to 1996 and registering them afterwards leads to confiscation of the gun. One such shotgun was used in the deadliest terrorist attack on Australian soil in 2014.

* Not technically a sawed-off shotgun, but in [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10746627/1/Shakedown-the-Dream this]] JudgeDredd fanfic specific mention and use is made of "carbine" versions of the widowmaker shotgun with shorter barrels. The weapons are described as chambering the same round and having the same stopping power, but being easier to use in close quarters. [[FairCop Judge Cassandra Anderson]] also remarks that smaller weapons are easier for her and another female to handle (a point made in narration earlier in the series).

** The US Supreme Court ruled this law was legal in 1939, in the landmark case of ''United States v. Miller'', 307 U.S. 174. Of course only the prosecution showed up as the defendant was too poor to show up, and was dead before the ruling came down. Also, the ruling was based upon faulty information as to whether a short-barrelled shotgun was used by any national militias.

Also, the ruling was based upon faulty information as to whether a short-barrelled shotgun was used by any national militias. It's also been a point of contention whether two Supreme Court justices who were WorldWarOne veterans (but never in the trenches; one was an artillery officer and the other an Army lawyer) were personally aware of the military usage of short-barreled shotguns, regardless of it never having been introduced into evidence.
