Pointless buff on Boomstick?

So the Boomstick is a unique shotgun and one of the bonuses it grants is +1m to Bow, Crossbow, Pistol and Wand range. But that doesn't include shotguns and the shotgun is a two handed weapon. It doesn't give the bonus when it's in your secondary weapon set so just why does it even have this? It seems pointless.

Can anyone clarify this?

    If I remember right the bonuses are random. One of my main issues with itemization in this game is I feel the randomization watered items down a lot. Uniques are kind of blah and you end up with affixes that aren't any good and legendaries have bonuses that don't fit their themes at all. There isn't that over the top coolness factor that would make them more interesting. Sets are pretty much the only thing you can really plan an interesting build around which to me is pretty boring.

    Of course I could be misinterpreting how things work but aside from a few items I've never really found any truly interesting loot that had that 'Wow!' factor.
