SxS’s have no shortage of falsehoods regurgitated over the decades.

Most commonly one comes up during debates between O/U and SxS. It usually goes like this, “O/U are easier to shoot because they only have one sight plane!”. At that point images come to mind of the flaccid Elmer Fudd SxS with two beads at each barrel muzzle.

What others have you heard?

Well side by sides do kick, side to side. I use that to get my second shot off quicker. You shoot the barrel which will naturally move your barrels in the direction of the bird. I might be using the wrong barrel first but get my second shot off so quickly, the second shot stream often merges with the first, to create a wall of pellets birds can not get past. Makes my side by side almost into a light speed weapon. I’ll circle back with the fuzzy math when I leave my basement to walk the dog before he bites someone else. wink

You do realize that anyone who shoots a sxs is directly related to the Hatfields and Elmer Fudd. That is unless you wear a flat cap and then you’re just a pretentious snob. The boys with their Benelli blasters, masters of their little universe, wretch at the sight of a sxs as they wax poetically about the latest 3 15/16 oz supreme triple T pterodactyl loads. Those sxs shooters are just such smug little bastards with their lust for little gauges and antique guns. Be careful of them. They’re mostly old. Over 40 at least.

Now now, follow the rules!

I thought it was “carries like a 20 and kills like a 12”?

Slings on a double will contribute to putting it off-face quicker.

You should ease the shock of closing the barrels by braking the top lever with your thumb.

Actually I don’t know if this is false or true. I’ve heard both.

The other possibility is there is some level of placebo effect, I just enjoy shooting my SxS’s so much!

Double triggers are for shooting both barrels at the same time.
