Ok I have a 12 gauge shotty. Now say for info somehow I ended up shooting some guy in the leg, Which did not happen, and he does not know who I am and can not identify me can the shot fired from the gun be traced back to my shotgun?

If they find your gun they could probably match the bullets to the shot gun.

They can't trace shot but if it was a slug they could or if you left shells they can trace those back to the shot gun and then to the owner

I'd assume they'd identify the type of shotgun from the bullet shells, and take a list of all registered shotguns in the area of the shooting and then narrow the list down for those they think have motive, and such.

This is all based on the CSI TV program though.

If your hand has physically touched the bullet he can find your prints and get it traced back to the record of you owning that shotgun and then they find you. So yes.

if it was pellets, then probably no, but if it was a slug then there is a possibity, but they'd still have to actually have your gun to prove it was a match, soooooo, unless they suspected you, then no, idts.

but dont shoot ppl in the legs unless they deserve it.

There are no fingerprints on the shot. The shells would fall into a catch I built for my gun.

if you don't leave shells behind and you use shot only then they can't trace it from the gun but they could still prove that you were there by other means and knowing that you owned the type of gun used in this could still get you caught.
