Military guns would not have the barrel requirements of civilian weapons (minimum barrel length) and leverage would work hard against you.
A one handed shotgun would need to strap to, or sleeve your forearm for support and recoil.
One handed shotguns are available now in the form of the revolver "the Judge" and it's various copies.(.410ga)
A sleeved, shotgun with a very short barrel and semi-auto, aimed like a fist, would do very well for self defense, but would not be usable for hunting. except at extremely close range.
A long barreled one would require a rest or tripod mount. (due to leverage and recoil)
The "Judge" is available as a pistol, and as the "Circuit Judge" in a rifle/shotgun version
Good luck with your project, but I think you will have to refine the use of your weapon.

I've got two ideas for you:
1) If you're looking for input of this sort, I would try the Hunter's Campfire forum at 24hourcampfire.com. There are a lot of custom gun makers, gunsmiths etc. who might be able to help you.
2) Contact Tim Farmer, the host of Kentucky Afield. http://fw.ky.gov/kyafieldtv.asp Tim's an avid outdoorsman and does it all with one good hand. Not only would he be a good person to bounce ideas off of. He's also tapped into the network of disabled outdoorsmen and can probably give you contact info for the experts in the field. He's frequently seen on his show shooting game one-handed with a 12 GA shotgun
I think this is a great idea.
