Ithaca used to sell something a lot like this as a "car gun" (pre-NFA). I'm guessing it'd work well at discouraging panhandlers at toll booths.
The "Auto & Burglar". Apparently a place called Denny's Guns makes a clone of that, but the guys that I bought the Serbu from said they are hard to come by and cost a couple grand. I would like to have one of those as well.
Since I have it, I am wondering if anyone can think of an actual tactical niche that such a weapon might fill. I live in an urban environment, so post-disaster tucked under the armpit via single-point sling, concealed by a coat and backed up by a pistol maybe? Anyway, just a hypothetical for fun.
Area suppression, breaking contact/moving for cover, multiple foes at close range. With a barrel that short, the spread should open up pretty quickly. Empty it then transition to pistol.
Also, it'd be a great "car gun".

A buddy of mine has one. We decided it would work great in a car. The pattern of shot at around 35 - 40 ish yards was only about 2 feet with both buck and bird shot.
In case anyone was wondering what the muzzle flash looks like in a pitch black rocky mountain night here ya go. =D
