You can't compensate for the lost equipment slot with the skills, because with pistols you can spend those skillpoints elsewhere.
You can't possibly say that all the bonuses you get from wearing a shield are not better than the small advantage you get from using a shotgonne, for instance.

Anyway, if I found a shield that gave 60% chance of 2 second stun, +45 knockback, and 90% chance of 67% blindness for 3 seconds on hit, I'd be all over that even if it did nothing defensively. That's what Shotgonne Mastery gives you at max ranks. It's fantastic. Not only that, but it triggers off of Rapid Fire and Venomous Hail, giving you a fairly spammable 5.5m radius knockback/stun/blind that does good damage. Even at lower ranks, with the number of shots those skills trigger, it's going to proc constantly.
