Best Answer

Actually, some of the first firearms used in combat could be classified as shotguns, although they were rather large and mounted on the castle wall. Some Southern cavalry carried short-barreled shotguns, and US troops used "trench guns" in both world wars, Korea, Vietnam and both Gulf Wars. It is a common weapon used by security forces on ships, as the damage to the ship itself is not going to be great compared to what it will do to an intruder.
