Say what? The US military has had quite a few combat shotguns over the years.
Last I looked - and vets, correct me if I'm wrong - the use of shotguns on the battlefield was considered a violation of the Hauge convention on warfare. I know that some guys carried them early in Vietnam, at least until Johnson increased the deployments. And I know shotguns were frequently carried by some MP's and SP's at checkpoints and airfields, but their role was limited.
