The stubby shotgun is a powerful weapon, but it has a very short range. At close range it can blow up a vehicle with 2 rounds; however, you will likely take a lot of damage. At close range, it will take out an armored opponent, such as a SWAT member or an FBI Agent. Due to its short length, it has an extremely low range, and it will probably not hit someone across the street. The model for the Stubby Shotgun in GTA Vice City and Liberty City Stories is based on an Ithaca 37 'Stakeout' and Serbu Super Shorty whereas the Vice City Stories rendition is based off of a sawn-off Mossberg 500. The Chinatown Wars variant is rendered to be a Sawn-Off Shotgun according to the HUD image.
