    If you mod it, it can fire more than 1 round simultaneously, which is basically what you wanted to do.

    I once created a pseudo-shotgun that was effectively four block-trigger weapons combined as one unit. The four pins were pulled simultaneously with one pulling mechaism (a square with a handle) and then they four shots were also fired simultaneously by a fused trigger system.

    It was terribly unreliable and not worth building, hence why I never posted it.

     The shotgun idea won't work well. I made an identical gun many months ago. The two energy transfers cause the gun to lose a lot of power.

     Oh nevermind I've already got it.
    You put a bullet in each barrel, pull the trigger and the ram rams the red circle.
    This bounces out the bullets right?
