    Use the 12gauge. I cannot see how it is over-kill for a deer.

    I have heard of a 410 killing dear. But 12ga. or even 10ga. is not over kill. Overkill would be a 300 weatherby at 50 yards.

    Not overkill, not even close. I would get the 12ga. that way you can grow into it. I started with a 20ga. at 14, killed deer with it, but I moved up to a 12 within a couple years. If this is going to be a strictly deer gun, I like the H&R single shot for a slug. Put a 3x9 on it, and you have a deer killing machine.

    I would certainly take the 12 over the 20 for deer, 12 is no overkill, just like kyle i would even choose a 10 over a 12

    I don't know who told you that but the 12 gauge is just fine and totally ethical.

    I shoot a 12 because that is what I have, but if I were going to buy a "Slug Gun" it would be a 20. It is lighter, handier, lower recoiling and just as effective on the business end. If you want an all around shotgun you can't go wrong with a 12, but for a dedicated slug gun I think a 20 is the way to go.

    I'll take the 12 also, certainly not overkill.
