POTD: KelTec KSG Deployed By French Police During Riots

Today’s Photo Of The Day features a KelTec KSG shotgun, which I rarely see in the wild, yet they turn up in law enforcement photos from time to time. The photos come from the French Police Nationale’s Facebook page on June 30, 2023. During late June and into July, France mobilized 45,000 police officers to combat the violent riots in cities across the country after a 17-year-old immigrant was killed during a traffic stop. During this mobilization, more than 2000 rioters were arrested over five days, and over 200 officers were injured as of the time of this writing.

The Kel-Tec KSG bullpup shotgun was introduced in 2011 and was designed with two tubular magazines, each of which can hold up to seven 2 3/4 inch shells. There’s no visible indication as to whether this particular shotgun is loaded with less-than-lethal or lethal munitions. The shotgunner’s partner is holding a Penn Arms L540, 40mm rotary grenade launcher, and both are armed with Glock pistols, which is indicative of the RAID (Research, Assistance, Intervention, Deterrence) force.
