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
Yep, that's what I meant! Oops. An over/under is more accurate, huh? I guess I'll stick with this.
I'm scared to use this gun. I want my own, but I want to make sure I like it before I buy one. It's some expensive rare shotgun of my father-in-laws. Yikes. I'm scared I'll do something to it.
So if I start with a 20 gauge and can actually hit a few targets with it, I should be better with a 12 gauge? What is the difference of the kick between the two? That's why I chose to go with the 20 over the 12 right now. Is there that big of a difference?
