Under stress the body's going to want to get the shots off as quickly as possible and "proper shooting stance" and positioning is going to suffer no matter what gender you are. Because of the rapid succession of the shots, it's harder to maintain control with a shotgun than it will be with a rifle that's built to absorb all of the recoil.

Regardless. The issues are not gender-based issues.

If you have both the shotgun and the carbine in your vehicle, what situation would have you deploy with the shotgun instead of the carbine and why?

The only time a shotgun may have the advantage is barrier penetration (slugs), which 5.56 isn't great at.

I would imagine that this is something that should not be discussed in the Public Forum... Just saying...

Without getting into a list of situations which don't belong in a public forum, I would refer you to my initial post. There is a reference to a situation where the suspect was wearing body armour.

Recoil...

That's why ammo manufacturers offer "Reduced Power" shotgun loads for LE. ;)
A one once slug moving at 1250fps rather than at 1600fps
I use 'em excusivley as all I need to do with 'em is knock down steel, but more than enough punch to use against two legged vermin.


As for 5.56/.223... I don't think recoil has ever been an issue with such a round no matter what rifle you're using. If you have trouble controlling a 5.56/.223 maybe a trip to the gym would help.
Admit nothing.
Deny everything.
Make counter accusations...
