Why am I shooting at someone behind cover? So the tree or what ever cover can eat my ammo? If I have cover let them make noise as long as I know where they are I do not care.
Don't know about you but I have taken deer, rabbits and used a shot gun with a slug to harvest a cow when I did not have access to anything but a pump 12 gauge shot gun.
How much hunting have you done?
Survival: Actions I need to do NOW to live another 5 minutes to 3 days. Prepping: What I do to insure my family makes it thru an adverse event lasting 3 days to 3 months  Seeds and livestock: What you need for long term subsistence.
I'm noticing a pattern with this member.
A bit overzealous (not necessarily a bad thing), but constantly one-posts a new thread and then abandons it completely. He never defends his position when called to task, nor responds in kind if he learned something new.
The bit is getting old.

His post also assumes that you are going to sit still behind cover while hostiles maneuver on you. That is just a couple of the many assumptions have pointed out.

Ladies and gentlemen,
If I may, Okey and his various other incarnations on other forums, highlights the survivalist mentality.
And all their shortcomings.
His posts illustrate the degree of their warped, twisted mentality.
Would you want this person as your neighbor?
Read his posts with a degree of entertainment value in mind.
But there are those out there who actually believe it.
There are those out there that will believe anything. Simply because they refuse to do their own research. Sheeple.

I'm not a shotgun fan, but they have a purpose for some. Not me, but for some.

That's it exactly... it's situational, just a tool in the box. There are times (like out in the field with hundreds of yards of open space) when I would want a rifle. Line of sight limited to from a window/firing station to maybe out to the street, I'd put a 12 gauge in everyone's hands if I feared being overrun. Right tool, right job. And yes, nothing like a shotgun for putting food on the table... from grouse right on up to deer and elk.

You were presumptuous in writing this, and wrong headed.

are you assuming that a person would only have a shotgun
most preppers understand using a hammer for a nail....
every weapon has a purpose....
I would like to point out that the sound of a pump shotgun being racked in the dark will make most bad guys lose at least 2 pounds
and the sight of a barrel big enough to fit your thumb pointed at your from a couple of feet away is a top pucker factor rating
