Unless the shotgun is sporting a smoothbore barrel because its owner usually loads it with shot shells... which describes most shotguns. Dedicated slug barrels normally get used in one of two limited instances: a state allows hunting with shotguns loaded with slugs, but not rifles; or, a shooter's budget only allows for one weapon, so the hunter buys multiple barrels for a shotgun, and switches according to a given day's intended use.

A handgun is easier to maneuver with, in certain circumstances, such as TunnelRat and others have posted.

And, again as others have posted, sometimes a handgun can be taken places where a long gun simply cannot.
