It might seem stupid in Iraq or Afghanistan, but it wasn't stupid in the Viet Nam. I guess it would seem stupid to somebody who hasn't seen engagement at pistol range, with troops that want to lay down to shoot, because that's how they trained! Shotguns are useful to the "taking care of business" guys to get the level of fire up to suppression levels, while the rest of the squad is finding a nice place to lay down to shoot. Wish we had M1Super 90's back then. Mostly M37, some shot loads for the M79. I like the thumper, but with shot it wasn't much for range.
