the failure of this line of thought, is that you're relying upon the shotgun to be a 1 shot show stopper at CQB distances.
And while the shotgun is effective, it simply is not a 1 shot show stopper. Nothing is, and we have seen proof over and over that it isn't.
If you have to engage more than one target, one target repeatedly, etc, the shotgun quickly takes a back seat.
