It's all personal preference. Go with what you feel comfortable with.

I have several 12 ga shotguns and find them more versitile overall. From ultra light handicap loads to heavy buch shot and Slug loads. The 12 ga is supreme.

The 20 was added simply because it was FREE. I have never owned a 20 ga and "needed" one to round out the collection. It will likely become my wife's zombie gun. If I only had one shotgun, it would be a 12 ga.
