The advantages of a handgun are clear. The advantages of a long gun (be it rifle or shotgun) are clear. It's an individual choice.
Excellent point. It always amazes me how so many people blindly adopt a tactic or piece of gear solely based on what one of the cool kids says. Does Costas have some valid points about shotguns and handguns? Obviously yes. But how many fanboys are dumping their shotguns without evaluating if any of those points are an issue for them?
