History: Some people include an undemocratic rule in their Shotgun practice whereby “Reload”, “Blitz” or “Laser” can be called, at which point a free-for-all to obtain Shotgun is initiated. In this practice, whoever manages to gain control of the Shotgun seat through physical domination of the other occupants is declared the winner
There are two reasons this rule is in place. First, it negates all other rules and therefore defeats the whole purpose of having rules by which to govern Shotgun. And second, Shotgun is intended to be a game of wits, not brawn.
