Looking at side-by-sides the two barrels together can be wide (bulky). How wider is a 20 gauge side-by-side compared to a .410? I'm thinking of getting a side-by-side but I don't want one that is bulky and heavy. I will be doing skeet and it will be used as a back up home defense gun. I don't want a skeet shotgun i'm looking into a coach or hunters side-by-side. I currently own a 20 gauge H&R Topper Jr. Thanks.

Respectfully,

I know you didn't mention Cowboy shooting in your question. BUT if you decide to use your shotgun in CAS sometime down the road it must be 20 ga or larger.


Just my observation,

A few of the twenties out there are made on 12 frames and are therefor a bit on the bulky side. But most are a good bit slimmer than the twelve bores. (this is why a lot of shooters are disappointed when they go a twenty looking fer reduced recoil, lighter/slimmer guns recoil almost as hard as the heavier/wider guns in bigger bores)

don't have exact figures,but

when I watch cas shooters it's fairly easy to spot the twenties.Quite a bit slimmer overall.
Of course the yellow shells help a bit too. :)
