A lot of the “experts” out there will tell you that you can pick up a shotgun with any type of ammo in it and simply point in the general direction of a bad guy and you will hit them.
Well they are wrong. Shotguns have differing points of aim and will even have different points of aim depending on what ammo you are using.
You need to pattern your shotgun. We found a good video from Purely Tactical that talks about it and shows you what to do.
