    what gun do you like better for rabitts 12.ga or 20.ga?

  • #2
    I personally prefer a .22, no pellets to pick out if you take a clean head shot. But if I had to choose, between a 12 and 20 gauge, probably a .20 gauge.

      Rabbit Hunting tends to involve a lot of walking and I greatly prefer the lighter weight and shells of my 20 Gauge 870 with a 26" barrel to my 12 Gauge super magnum. It's a perfect rabbit setup.

            i think shooting a rabbit with a shotgun is cheating. it's alot harder and funner to me with a 22

              I have an old Winchester slide .22 that I like, but there are some places where I feel the urge to use my double 20.

                      Rem 1100 20ga.

                      If I feel a little cocky I'll take out the side by side .410.

                          I shoot 20 out of my 12 gauge and use little skeeters.

                            22 is what I prefer for cottontails. I often use a 20 ga. Now jackrabbits that is a different story I had 2 in one day sommersault and run after getting plastered by soga #4 at 20-25 yds. I upgraded to a 12 for the jackrabbits.
