didn't say 20g a is not going to kill. just he's going to out grow the gauge and eventually get a 12ga so why not start with a 12ga buy once. 20 and 12 not much different in recoil depends on the gun itself . i can use a stick and it will kill just as well as the 12s i own .
Winchester1852, the young man out grow the gun, not the gauge and if he turns out to be a fellow that loves hunting, thru the years, I venture to say he will end up owning several different types of guns as well a variety of gauges
BTW my favorite gun for shooting doves and teal over decoys, is a Remington Model 1100 G3 20 gauge.
he will eventually get a 12ga. it impossible to out grow a gauge but he will get a 12ga sooner or later.
