Hey all, Just curious to see how many use a 20 gauge as their Home Defense shotgun. I know there's a lot of you that have them because your wife or girlfriend can easier handle a 20 rather than a 12. I'd like to hear about those that CHOOSE to have a 20 gauge rather than a 12 gauge. If you do, why? I've been thinking of picking one up myself. The other day I saw a Pardner Pump Youth 20 that had a 21 inch vent rib andit looked like it would make a nice home defense weapon. Not bad at $185 too. I understand the recommended load for the 20 in HD situations is #4 Buck. Is that right? Is that in 2 3/4 or 3 inch? Doesn't that load have 18 or so pellets of 0.25caliber? Tell me how it stands up to a 12 gauge 00 Buck in the 2 3/4 reduced recoil or whatever the manufacturers are calling them. Thanks for the time. Nalajr Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
