This past X-Mas my wife got me a sweet litl' O/U 20 Gauge. I've never owned or even shot a twenty so curious if this litl' upland gun can do double duty for waterfowl? If so any experience on non-tox loads to try? Or just trade it for a new 12ga.??

I've shot ducks with a 20 (a Belgian Browning O/U, and a Browning Citori chambered 3") using #6 shot with good success...but I prefer my Beretta 12 gauge O/U for waterfowl: Bismuth shot, #4 for ducks & #2 for geese...I must be getting older! :lol:

The 20 was plenty of gun, especially with 3" #6s, when the birds were in tight. It was a bit light, though, when the distances were greater...thus the 12 now.
