2 years ago I used mine the entire goose season (early and regular) hunting in decoys. I had comparable success as to using the 12 and didn't notice any more cripples than ususal..........

I dont.. BUT my daughter, 9, does now. Remmy 870 Youth Compact JR. Started out using Hevi Shot classic doubles to help manage recoil and still smoke birds. Have moved to Hevi Metal for it and she is flat smokin birds with it.

I've done it off and on over the years depending on how how my reloading supplies are looking. 1oz HS 6 in 2.75" 20ga hulls has put some really nice ducks on my wall for under $2/round. If I'm strapped, I put the money in powder to stoke high velocity 12ga steel. I enjoy shooting the 20ga more; it's kinder on my ears and shoulder.

Been using an O/U in 20 the past few seasons on ducks....excellent results using HEVI 6's and 4's (the 'original' HEVI and I only have a few boxes left).....as noted, I have chosen my shots better and limit the high risk shots and my overall result has been better!

20ga Browning B-80 with a short barrel was my duck killer in the days of lead. I put it away for a twelve when it was steel, and have hardly killed any teal since. I'm inspired to dust it off, and give it another try.

I used a 20 ga 870 in high school and college for ducks and had no problems. Like many have stated just know your limitations
