12 ga is much more versitile. Hundreds of different loads available.
In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.

True, 12 is more versatile, great variety of ammo, but puttin' that gauge in 10 year old's hands is pushin' it. Mine just turned 10, and I wouldn't even think about it. But to each his own

The problem w/ most of the inexpensive 20 gauges is that even though they are a 20 ga, they are built on 12 ga frames. I'm sure this is a cost cutting decision by the manufacturer. The Remington 1100 is made on a smaller frame, but I don't like to let young shooters use an auto. A pump is much safer. The Ithaca M37 20 ga is made on a scaled down frame and I believe the M870 Rem. is also.
