"In Sicily they call it "lupara". When they find someone shot with one of these babies, everyone knows the deal."

"Alright, you primitive screwheads, listen up. See this? This... is my BOOMSTICK! It's a twelve-gauge, double-barreled Remington. S-Mart's top of the line. You can find this in the sporting goods department. That's right, this sweet baby was made in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Retails for about $109.95. It's got a walnut stock, cobalt blue steel, and a hair trigger. That's right. Shop smart. Shop S-Mart. YOU GOT THAT?"
Ashley J. Williams, Army of Darkness

"Hold it right there, squire. You are privileged to be looking down the barrels of a gold-plated Purdey shotgun. Now as a bank manager, you'll appreciate that any man capable of cutting a gun like that in half wouldn't think twice about cutting you in half."

"Your hole card is a low card, motherfucker. I see your pistol and raise you one double-barreled scattergun."
The Prof, Hard Candy

"What I really need is a shotgun, with a sawed-off barrel and the shells to go with it."

Schlock: I made a matching pair of sawed-off multicannons.
Kevyn: Schlock, the entire length of the barrel is an integral part of a multicannon. Plasma couplings and aperature controls are gone, there's no autotracking... those weapons are now a menace to anything standing within a hundred meters of you.
Schlock: Perfect. I'm going for intimidation value, here.
Kevyn: I'd be more comfortable if you strapped grenades to your chest.
Schlock: Sounds like I cut the barrel in just the right place, then.
