Eric and his double barreled shotgun

Eric and his shotgun.

The 12 Gauge Double Barreled Shotgun is a shotgun with two parallel barrels, allowing two shots to be fired in quick succession.

In Inglourious BasterdsEdit

Eric, the owner of the tavern in Nadine, keeps a hammerless double-barreled shotgun behind the bar, firing it when the gunfight begins.


  • In a scene from the trailer, that does not appear in the film, Eric's shotgun is shown being set off when he points it at the counter, blasting a hole in it (that is seen in the film). However, unless those were rounds from other firearms (which is doubtful, since the rounds aimed at him are from an angle and not perpendicular to the table), there is no way the shotgun was able to spread the pellets that much at that close of range.
