Over & Under (O/U) shotgun
John Riis (Peter Feeney) has an Over/Under (O/U) shotgun ready to go on his coffee table when a Vampire comes through his kitchen window and attacks his wife. He chases the Vampire outside to save his wife but is too slow to catch it.
Browning O/U shotgun - 12 gauge.
Riis keeps his O/U shotgun on his coffee table.
Riis tries to fire his O/U shotgun under his house at the Vampire. Keeping both fingers on both triggers is a bad idea when shooting double trigger guns, the recoil can cause you to pull both triggers, resulting in a "double-kick", which is quite unpleasant.
