Seven Foot Long Shotgun Barrel!!!????

Okay, maybe someone can explain this to me.

Is this a typo?

 If not who makes these things and boy, howdy, I would sure
like to see a picture. Google has squat  I can find so far.

Because we would hunt Saturday near condos (or whatever), we would use Wendell's "long guns," or shotguns outfitted with 7-foot-long barrels.

Heavily ported, the barrels hush a gun's report, making it sound more like a loud handclap than a typical 12 gauge blast.

The barrels aren't heavy, and the guns swing easily. Christy and Nicholas would have no problems.

A metro tube.  A kind of suppressor for a shotgun (but do not need a ATF approval).  The tube is lightweight and they make 'Metro' shells that are subsonic to help reduce the noise

Storefront decoration.
