This would be great for Cowboy Action Shooting, in particular the Classic Cowboy or Black Powder categories. It is also perfect for home defense according to President* Joe Biden…just fire two blasts.

This one is especially good for SASS shooting as the action can be opened with the hammers cocked, making it much faster.
