==Modern usage==
More recently, the term has been applied to a [[game]], usually played by groups of friends to determine who rides beside the driver in a car. Typically, this involves claiming the right to ride shotgun by being the first person to call out "shotgun". The [[game]] creates an environment that is fair by forgetting and leaving out most [[seniority]] except for that momsmothers and significant others automatically get shotgun, and this meanwhile leaves out any conflicts that may have previously occurred when deciding who gets to ride shotgun.<ref>{{Cite web|url=https://www.shotgunrules.com/|title=Official Rules for Calling Shotgun {{!}} Riding Shotgun {{!}} Shotgun Rules|website=www.shotgunrules.com|language=en-US|access-date=October 25, 2017}}</ref> Therefore, it is best played and seen mainly within friend groups because of the lack of seniority, and it is when most people enjoy participating in games. Also, the front passenger seat is typically most wanted because of the small perks it contains like more leg room and easier access to the radio and air controls of the car. Calling shotgun does not apply to bi-directional trips; shotgun must be called before each journey when within sight of the vehicle.
