The shotgun handle is broken. Did anyone else notice this before?

Yes because he sawed off the handle of it so that it was easier to conceal it.

Here's what Eric's gun looked like before he sawed it off.

And this here is what Dylan's shotgun would have looked like before he sawed it off.

But it cuts halfway into the handle. Do you think he started sawing it and realised the handle would be too short? The stump that's left has a cut nearly halfway through it. I think that's what Seltzer Shank was trying to get across?

Yes, I think that's exactly what happened. I think Eric started sawing it off at that point and then realized that the handle would be way too small. This is why I believe he had duct tape all around the handle - to tape up where he originally started sawing that way the wood didn't crack/break any further. And he probably thought the duct tape would help soften the kick-back too.

Maybe when he was sawing it off he accidently cut it too short making the handle less stable. It's possible that after constant firing, the recoil combined with the lack of a sufficient handle could've worn or damaged the stock. That's why he taped it.

It's possible, but as far as we know, the first time they ever fired these shotguns was at Rampart Range and he had already had the duct tape on it by then. So this is why I tend to believe he started sawing it, realized it was way too short, then decided to saw it in a new place.

But, we'll never know for sure and all theories are logical. Very Happy
