Thanks guy's
I have been known to over gun myself in the past when a lighter caliber would have worked just fine,I am learning to match my gun to my hunting and not my ego.

That gun will shoot comfortably in either 20 or 12 gauge so I don't let discomfort of firing be any sort of deciding factor.

I favor the 12 because with a modern slug and rifled barrel shots can be taken at pretty substantial distances with predictable accuracy. It is at these distances where the 20 is petering out that the 12 gauge carries the bang to the party.

I have a 24" blued 12ga barrel and a 28" Pro hunter 20ga barrel. I would recommend the 20ga Pro Hunter. The 12ga just needlessly beats you up. The 20ga drops deer just as well and since you are in Fl., I doubt you will have any shots over 150 yards. The 20 will be plenty of power for you and the Hornady SST's shoot well.
