I'm just starting to get into bird hunting and hopefully my wife will be purchasing me a shotgun before Christmas. I'll be doing mostly quail and dove hunts and I may try my hand at ducks but there's always a chance of a friend asking me to go deer or turkey hunting. My question is should I stick with my original plan of getting a 20ga. or should I move up to a 12? I posted a similar question on another site and almost everyone recommended that I get a 12. I don't have anything against a 12 (other than one kicking the snot out of me when I was about 8) I have just been thinking about getting a 20 the whole time. What do y'all think?
