I'm using a 20 gauge over/under. I'd really like to use a double barrel, but this is a borrowed gun from my father in law. Anyone have experience with a one vs. the other, pros cons? I don't think I can handle the kick of a 12 gauge yet, that's why I'm starting with the 20.
Any good advice, anecdotes, .....anything?
Do you mean you'd like to use a side by side? an over/under is a double barrel. Anyway, I shot on the Trap and Skeet team at the Academy for 4 years. I shoot a Beretta 687 Silver Pidgeon II (over and under) and a Remington 1100 (autoloader). An over/under is more accurate than a side by side, use the bottom barrel as it is the more accurate of the 2. You will have a harder time hitting the clays with a 20 gauge vice a 12 gauge. Any other Qs just holler
