I like my doubles for dove. I used to have a 12 gauge that disappeared from the house somehow and now only have my 20 Weatherby. Using the over/unders helps me to keep focused on only two targets or one follow up shot, saves lots of shells. I find I go through too many shells if I use the pump, and if I hit what I shoot at it is harder to find the extra bird if I actually get three in one flight. I use anywhere from #8 to #6 shot game loads.

Now is double or pump action personal preference, or are there ups and downs to have one or the other.

Mostly personal preference.

I am the very satisfied owner of a 20 ga Monte. it is a pheasant killing machine. I am confident it would work for dove also.

For doves here, shooting over wild hemp patches, I use my Winchester model 42 pump .410, and my wife loves her Ithaca 20 ga double. We use #7-1/2 shot, and get good range.
