This little honey comes straight from the wonderfully demented mind of Mark Serbu, who appears to have been influenced by one Ricardo Tubbs from "Miami Vice". Based on a Mossberg Maverick 12-gauge, the SUPER-SHORTY is one cool little scattergun. I handled one last week at the show(Shot Show), and came away impressed.
