As title asks, I'm getting sick of half the time shooting a guy point blank and somehow, the pellets come out in the perfect shape of his body missing him or doing very little damage.

Short story- I was knifing a guy when someguy came up behind, shot 4 times, missed every time, and I turned around and shot him. Thats Bull.

Random spread. Even though you may have lined up the shot, due to random spread all the pellets could go off to one side and completely miss.
"I know lying is wrong, but if the elephant man came in now in a blouse with some make up on, and said "how do I look?" Would you say, bearing in mind he's depressed and has respiratory problems, would you say "go and take that blusher off you mis-shapened elephant tranny"? No. You'd say "You look nice... John""

They're from the Matrix. That's why you miss.
I accept defeat.

Then you are missing, I have no problems killing people at close to medium long range. Maybe you should practice more.

Nope it's true, stuff like this happens and is very annoying. Happens a lot for me on AR too, i see the hit marker and when i die from him 100% health?

If you miss with a shotgun it's your fault, it's not like we don't miss. No one here has 100% accuracy.
