I guess that would depend on what type of shell was in the weapon, if it was a slug and not a shot load then it’s a perfectly fine choice. AR-15 would have been fine also plenty of distance between the Marshal and the video fool. And actually any long gun is more accurate than a hand gun due to the length of the barrel. I see nothing wrong with the choice of weapon. It’s people that make comments when they know absolutely nothing about weapons that are the morons!
Diablo - Curious. Have you studied gun encounters? What you say is true, but I wonder if any long arm in that scenario is susceptible to over-penetration, as well as being harder to bring to bear. I was taught that at close ranges, a person can decide to act and close before the trigger can be pulled. Add to that trying to sweep the barrel of a long arm from side to side, and the problem is multiplied. I think I'll stand by my statement for now and go off to do a little more study.

It’s not like these people are targeting cops across the nation for execution. Hell whens the last time we’ve heard of a cop getting ambushed while going about their every day lives, like while pumping gas or just sitting in their car? Oh wait never mind!
LOL Diablo, he claimed he ” invented ” it! I don’t know how I got along all these years without something to wake me up in the morning! (Besides my cat that is)
Everything -- there is something sad about adults bashing a kid over the misuse of a word.
Of course, there is something just as sad about grown men with power telling us we should be afraid of a fourteen year old kid.
