Yes, no damage if Shield Penetration is < or = Shield Resistance

There seems no point in ally this high varying shield penetration values, when there is no way to increase shield resistance beyond 27?
Exactly. AFAIK a weapon with 28 Shield Penetration has exactly the same effect like a weapon with 70 Shield Penetration.
(Btw: If you use modded content you could theoretically find shields with more than 27 Shield Resistance...)

I share the same opinion like you.

One that has just enough to penetrate may not do enough to bring down a shield except over a protracted period of time.
Really? I think this is incorret.
