fine, you guys are right. 12g is a superior weapon system for gunfighting.
if you want to manufacture a specific scenario where for some reason you require only 6 rds with slow awkward reloads and pumps between shots, and you are fighting kwikset deadbolts and bears....and bears in SUVS...then sure, the shotgun fills that niche.
but if i tell you that today you are going to get into a gunfight, (and i give you no other information).......i think you would be remiss to not grab your carbine.
Tell you what, Doctor; if you ever actually get in one, come tell everyone all about it once you're legally released to do so. Until then, take your place in the training junky bleachers and take notes. Your reading comprehension is abysmal in this thread, and uncharacteristic. The scenarios mentioned are not manufactured, but actually encountered. As in, personally confronted by those using said weapon to professionally administer their duties. Did you gloss over that, or just get wound up when you got rebuked and miss it entirely?
Now, of course, if the professionals start talking about cavity treatment and bridge work, in which case stomp their stuff with heavy boots.
