Terrorists afraid of shotguns? / New military shotty

http://www.military.com/soldiertech/0,14632,Soldiertech_AA12,,00.html


It is a well-known fact that terrorists killing our troops in Iraq are not afraid of the M4 and its 5.56mm bullet -- but they are terrified of shotguns. Enter the AA-12. No felt recoil, high explosive rounds, gas-forged and heat-treated, this shotgun may give terrorists a run for their money.


Is this true? Are they really afraid of shotguns and not afraid of M4s? That doesn't seem right.

LOL.... any sane man would fear a shotgun at close range...

jut remember the cardinal rule..if they cant see you they cant shoot you

(rule does not apply to hand grenades, high explosives, missles, bombs, RPGs. ect.)

Yeah, in the last couple days saw where they really fear shotguns and handguns. But not rifles. Just shows how backward the ragheads are I guess.

Still, a fine shotgun would seem pretty nice in urban settings. Have seen where some sercurity contractrers prefer pistol caliber carbines, and shotguns for the most part in the urban settings.

Buckshot and slugs out of a nice pump would be all you need..

Imagine, if we did shoot someone, they'd be more likely to die which means no medical problems. And if they did live, odds are they have a disability which forces them clean

That and.. imagine when the word got out about what buckshot does.. boy, you'd get some runnin' scrared terrorists.
