Slow-motion cutaway video shows how a fully automatic shotgun works

I can't have enough of videos that show things cut in half working. This one shows a fully automatic shotgun in action. It's sad to see how humans spend so much time and intelligence developing perfect death machines like these—but the engineering work is fascinating nonetheless.

An ammo drum for a shotgun?! It's hard to imagine another object I'd be more attracted to and repelled by at the same time. Thank goodness Nerf exists to provide a safe outlet for my primitive desire to make play with projectiles. Alas, I don't think a minidart is up to the task of detonating an exploding target, and even if it was, range and accuracy would be an issue.
