Suggested correction: Even a "high powered" shotgun wouldn't do this. Newton's Third Law says that if it knocked the bad guy over, it would knock you over.

There is a difference between bracing yourself for the kick of a shotgun with it already planted into your shoulder and your feet ready for it, then to a person being hit by the shot not ready for it.

I myself have even had high powered riffles (a 300 Winchester Magnum) kick hard enough when I was a teenager that I was standing when I shot, and sitting in my chair after from the kick.

There's also a difference between being flung backwards after being shot and simply falling over. I've fired a Barrett Light Fifty rifle an even that round won't fling anyone back. Pure Hollywood.
