"A bird may be going away at tremendous speed, "burning the air" as a youngster would put it. Seemingly nothing but chain-lightning, which zig-zagged a bit, could stop him. A crack of the gun and that wild flier is dead in the air, a full forty yards away. Right then the conviction comes to us that man never made another weapon so deadly as the shotgun." ― Charles Askins, Shotgun-Ology: A Handbook Of Useful Shotgun Information

*By 1909, the shotgun as we know it had established its final form. The exterior shape of the pump-action was finalized by the Winchester Model 12, semi-automatics by the Browning Auto-5.
