Well... to take the ruling as it's written in the errata, it doesn't. I
think the reason most people use for applying it to shotguns in general is
that BF is exactly the same as firing 3 rounds from an FA weapon, so if
you don't use the rule for BF, what you get is this: firing a burst is a
TN of 7, while firing 3 rounds FA gives a TN 10. From there. it's only a
short step to making the double recoil apply to all shots fired from a
shotgun, to keep it all consistent.

Also, there are no FA shotguns anywhere to be found in official SR
supplements. Look around on the net and you'll find handsfull of the
things, though.

Paolo's page has them in HTML format, I think.
