    What are the different parts of a shotgun?

    "Right, now we have our gun broken we’re gonna go through the different constituent parts. We have at the front here, the bead. This is a remnant of the kind of foresight. Still particularly useful, but perhaps not so much as maybe on a rifle. We have the muzzles, these are these 2 bits here, this is where our shots are going to come out. So if you’re a pigeon or pheasant round here be careful. We have our barrels, these are the two black tubes here. This is where the shot finds its way out into the wide world. Also at the end here, not particularly evident on this gun because it has what we call fixed chokes, but there chokes in the barrel end here. Certain makes of gun will have removal chokes that you can change, certainly clay shooting guns and things like that. As we come further back we have the bore stock, thats this bit here. This holds the action which is here, to the barrels, and also gives you a convenient place to hold it when you’re shooting. Back down here we have the chambers, this is where the cartridges sit. The chamber is where the explosion kind of happens when we pull the trigger. This is what funnels the energy to push the shot out the end of the gun. We have the action, which is this area here. This is the bit that hinges the gun, and also it’s where the trigger mechanism is held. We also have on the top here two important components. The top lever, thats the bit that breaks the gun. We have the safety, this prevents the triggers being pulled and stops the gun working. When we want to shoot we put the safety forward, and that allows the trigger the freedom to move. Underneath we have the trigger guard. This prevents any prevents any unauthorized trigger use basically. So if we trip over it’s hopefully not going to go off. And we have the two triggers, this gun has two triggers, one for each barrel. Other guns will be single triggered, which would still work both barrels, but its a lot easier to learn to on when you have a single barreled gun.. a single triggered gun sorry. We also have the stock, this is the wooden bit here, this houses the action inside, and is also the bit that goes inside your shoulder when you want to shoot. And that’s it..."
