Problem is you have to put 5 points in that skill to get to the Double cannon on the Turret Tree.

No, you don't. The skill level increases regardless where you put the point in that tree. It's not a successive tree, it's a cumulative tree.

As for the argument on Passive VS Active, honestly, a skill is a skill to me. If a passive is going to allow me to mow through people faster and more efficiently, I'll take that over an active skill that basically is a flashy attack with the same possible modifiers.

Besides, a lot of the issues most people have is the teamplay aspect, which is tied more into the Class mods and the "teamwork" line of passives, which most people won't use because they aren't generally as good as class-specific mods. My Commando has a -47% cooldown reduction, which is great for the turret. My Siren, on the other hand, has a mod that increases the percentage healed by Restoration shots, which is useless solo and why I rarely have it equipped.
