Just because the shotgun has the capacity to be the most devastating practical small arm doesn't mean that it always is.

They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.

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.

I think he means that in the right hands and with the right training and practice the shotgun is a devastating weapon. However, those who don't bother to learn to use it to it's potential can be left with a gun that is pretty dificult to shoot well and keep running under stress.

I figured that....just seems it was sort of a random reply to my post, which was more of a "funny" comment than anything.

And yes, you are right about the incorrect assumption that ALL shotguns are simple to operate.

No shotgun is "simple" to operate if you have never loaded and fired one before, I really feel sorry for people who have been led to believe that they are.

Thanks for the comments.

I was chiming in on Doc's post. Not replying to you directly.
