In the movies, a guy, with a shotgun, be he hero or villain, is cool, but the guy with the sawed-off shotgun is usually much cooler. (See Mel Gibson's "Mad Max", Michael Caine's "Carter" - who actually wields both.) Peterson might have been thinking the same thing when they offered this sawed-off Lovat. Like an abbreviated 12-gauge, this pipe is made even cooler with its shorter shank and stem, but the size has not lessened its effectiveness. It still has a full-sized chamber to load with your favorite blend. The Aran finish shows off the briar's birdseye grain, and the sturdy nickel band accents it all handsomely.
