The Dukes of Hazzard: The Beginning

A Remington Model 870 is owned by Boss Hogg who keeps it within his house.

When he comes home and finds Luke in bed with his wife Lulu, he gets the gun and points it at Luke. Bo can overwhelm them and they flee. Boss Hogg follows them and shoots at them from the entrance of his house. He doesn't hit them, but destroys the glass jar filled with spirit that Bo uses to refuel the General Lee after it has run out of fuel.
