Default Another Slug Gun Question???

I bought a H&R 20 ga for my daughter.I wanted the 20ga to fit my daughter for waterfowl hunting. It did not. Now I'm going to buy her a 870 youth model.

What should I do with the 20 ga? Turn it into a slug gun? I already have a 12 ga slug gun.

My real question is....Does a 20 ga single shot slug gun offer anything extra that I don't get from the 12 ga pump already?

Thanks Bryan

No. My son 6'4" 250 lbs still shoot the Hastings barreled 870 LW I got him at 15, He kils a lot of Deer but he hit multiple times (awsome shot). He keeps pumping till thy hit the ground. 12 is just more decisive.

Unless, the 20 ga had a fully rifled barrel I would stick to the proven 12 ga. I have an NEF smooth bore and it does not shoot slug very good.

I would just send the gun to NEF and get a 20gauge slug barrel for it.

shoot the 20ga yourself, and see how it shoots. It may do more than your 12ga.

Only reason I shoot a 12ga is because it's what I have....If I had a 20ga to shoot, I more than likely would be shooting it, if groups were as good or better, I'd pick the 20ga. If they weren't I'd have to stick with the 12ga then.
