This is a great product that does what it says. It gives great boost in energy, huge pumps (especially if I stretch in between sets-my muscles are engorged with blood) and increases my endurance throughout a workout. Many extra sets per workout are the most noticeable result of the shotgun. I also used the NO Shotgun, the old version I suppose. I do not notice a big difference between the old and new formula. To compare with NO-Explode, that upsets my stomach, and usually burps back up to a degree during a workout. That doesn't happen with the shotgun. Shotgun watermelon and grape flavors so far are excellent. Honestly, if it was cardboard flavor, I'd buy it. It works that good for me.

I have used this product sense launch. I used it back when it was NO shotgun, and I ve got to say that its not as good as it used to be. The pumps are mediocre, the energy is more of head rush and no noticeable improvements to stamina or focus.

No hype like any top of the line pre-workout if not the BEST.

One of the best tasting pre-workouts. Plus it has protein and aminos. it gives me a good pump and, the energy to finish a workout strong even if i am tired.

This stuff is pretty hardcore but it's nothing compared to VPX friction which is no where to be found anymore :'( I like the fact that it has 14g of protein with each scoop you take, but I'm wondering if this affects the overall performance of the product. PS: Please bring back VPX friction :'( :'(

This is a great pre-workout that is more than that. It doesn't make me all juiced up out of my mind or shaky. I stay energized throughout my entire work out. When I complete my 4-5 sets I can rack the weights, and immediately move to my next work out, no rest, no hesitation. I did feel slightly upset to my stomach the first 6-8 times I used SHOTGUN, but that is no longer and issue and I've been using this product for about 3 months. I stacked it with Synthesize post work out and I have gotten better results just from these two products in 3 months than I did in about 8 months of natural training. Noticeable gains are there!

My favorite pre workout product, ever! You get everything you need from aminos to stims. 1 scoop is top notch and works perfect for me, pumps, endurance, focus, basiclly all you look for in a PW product.
