12 Gauge or 20?

What do you prefer?


Where can i get a free skateboarding magazine from?

I wount look at this from my point of view but my grandfathers.
Where there is no real difference between the guns the 12 may have a slight bit more range,
My grandfarther been the age that he is would choose the 20 since it way considrable less than his 12 and when your out on a game shoot/ walking i suppose that makes a diference at his age.
I think for a pearson to find that there is not much difference between the 2 guns they should give the 20 bore a go.
Its all about personal phreferance at the end of the day.
Happy hunting

I am an avid trap shooter and I prefer a 12g. I chose a gun that is a little on the heavy side, with a longer stock so I can pull it right into my shoulder (I also have a morgan pad) It really helps with the recoil. I even shoot 3 dram bullets. We go out three to four nights a week and shoot 100-125 rounds a night. Oh yeah... I'm a girl!

I reload for both and prefer the 20 gauge. I can break clays and drop doves just as far with the 20 as the 12.
1. The 20 gauge shotgun is usually lighter that the 12.
2. The 20 uses less shot and powder than the 12, so it is cheaper to load (although prices of new boxes of ammo don't reflect this).
3. The 20 has less recoil.
4. The 20 is not as loud.
5. With less shot, 20 gauge spare rounds are lighter to carry than the 12 gauge.

The advantage of the 12 gauge becomes apparent when shooting longer range for larger game such as turkey, duck, and geese.

I own both because I enjoy shooting the 20 gauge and I have a need for the added horsepower of the 12 gauge.

12 gauge. It's more versatile, and the most popular. You'll never have trouble finding ammo of any kind for it. If you're in good shape, you should have no problem with a 12 gauge. If your shotgun chamber is 3", or even better, 3 1/2", you can use loads just as powerful as a 10 gauge anywhere to the mild 2" European loads.
