When Captain America throws his mighty shield...

Did you ever ask why he throws it? Isn't he better served keeping the shield in front of him, blocking slings and arrows and nastier projectiles?

Originally it worked as a surprise attack. Enemies (especially Nazis) would not expect a shield to be flung at them much less thrown with enough accuracy to disarm, knock unconscious, and return to the thrower. As an offensive weapon it may be unorthodox but that is probably the only way the Cap doesn't play by the rules.
By the way the "new" Captain America will no longer wear chain mail and will carry a firearm
