20 gauge is quite a bit less than 12. never shot buck out of a 20ga but did fire some triple aut buck in a 12ga that kicked something fierce.

i have been thinking about getting a shotgun for a while and have had the same problem deciding between the two. im leaning towards the 20ga mostly because of utility. i have a .45 auto for home defense so it wouldnt be for that.
