With slug I can engage targets as far away as 100-150 yards. It's not a rifle but it's sure better then a pistol.

Bird Shot, Slug, Buck Shot, Turkey Shot, Powdered Metal Slug, Rifled Slug, etc.... If I was limited to one firearm it would be a firearm.
I am not going to argue the merits of shotguns they are a very effective weapon and for a while I used one to hunt goat but in the end I always found myself using the L1A1, I think it just comes back to a personal preference thing as it was the second rifle I ever owned and the first one I was given.

You hunt mice+rats with a shotgun? Isn't that a tad overkill? Dont you think a mouse trap, poison, or just a cat might be more effective. Heck the mice get one sniff of a kitty in the house and they move elsewhere.

Out in Big Cypress when I'm varmint hunting. We have a large rodent critter. It's like a normal rat on steroids. They start with a N. I forget what they're called. As for small rodents like mice I can use a shotgun to hunt them with. Number 8 Bird Shot does the trick. I don't hunt small rodents like mice but I can if I want to.... that's the usefulness of the shotgun. You can go from extremely small critters to extremely large critters.
