A semi-automatic shotgun is a shotgun that is able to fire a shell after every trigger squeeze, without needing to manually chamber another round. These weapons use gas, blowback or recoil operation to cycle the action, eject the empty shell and to load another round.

Many semi-automatic shotguns also provide an optional manual means of operation such as by pump-action or via a charging handle.
