True. It's just that the gunshop wisdom is to tell someone "If you don't have a lot of experience then just get a shotgun".
Kind of like everyone wants to immediately recommend a double action .38 snub nosed revolver for any woman who is looking for a gun. Nobody tells the woman the difference between single and double action. Let alone tell her that trying to master a double action trigger pull on a lightweight short barreled revolver and get accurate hits is tough. Or that that really light weight alloy gun that is a joy to carry can be punishing to practice with.
