What kind of shotguns do the military currently use?
OFM has the vast majority of sales since GWOT. Almost exclusively 500/590. The A1 has some presence.Brookelynngreen said:What kind of shotguns do the military currently use?
Yes and no.oli700 said:Couldn’t be used in a normal shotgun role ?
That's quite a bit right there. Add in training and stuff like LCE to support it as well.just with full auto capabilities, doesn’t seem like logistics would change too much other than storing and transporting more 12 ga shells, additional mags, parts.....
No problem with that. The problem is that something that size and with mags that size it is going to have to replace something else because it is too big to be carried along with another primary.I am only educated in forest fire logistics though so I don’t know lol....I am thinking more like if it replaced something rather than just an addition to.
I really don't recall. We beat this topic to death over on SGW several times, and I think the info was in there about if they could be fired out of standard shotguns.Can a guy use those little HE rounds in any SG ?
Yeah, but looking mean =/= it is a good idea for an intended role.Saw some show where they hooked two of those to one of those little bots like they use for bomb disposal.....looked mean
The immediate assumption with that is that you are describing 100% accuracy. That is typically NOT the case.Rossignol said:I was recently speakin to a VietNam Vet and retired LEO of 30 years. He said that in VietNam, when a firefight began and bullets started flyin, the guys with rifles would fire and fire, but everytime you heard a shotgun, another body dropped from the fight.
Probably not specifically in those terms.The question here is, does the ROF play a part in preventing the AA12 from seein service?
I sincerely doubt it. Shotguns are typcially anything not thought of as being efficient. Limited capacity is not something that is sought after, regardless of platform.Is it felt that the single shot and limited capacity make shotgun users more efficient in whatever role thay have in a unit?
