Automatic shotguns are intended for use as military combat shotguns. They typically have a high rate of fire and relatively low recoil, making them ideal for engaging multiple targets in a fast paced combat situation. They are able to fulfill several different combat roles, due to the wide variety of shotgun ammunition available. A single gun can be used to breech a door, clear a room, provide support with special grenade rounds, or even suppress a riot with some less-lethal rounds.
Automatic shotguns have not seen much use in the United States, but have been slightly more popular in some other countries.

Famous quotes containing the word use:
“... it is use, and use alone, which leads one of us, tolerably trained to recognize any criterion of grace or any sense of the fitness of things, to tolerate ... the styles of dress to which we are more or less conforming every day of our lives. Fifty years hence they will seem to us as uncultivated as the nose-rings of the Hottentot seem today.”
—Elizabeth Stuart Phelps (18441911)
