Another:

SxS’s kick more than O/U!

They fail to mention their K80 weighs 9lbs and the one SxS they shot four times weighed 6.75lbs.

Or the ever prevalent “side by side kicks from side to side you can shoot the bottom barrel on an OU and have it kick straight back which allows you to acquire the second target with much more ease.” Argument.

I guess I’m not astute enough to observe this.

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

Lloyd3,
I'm sorry but I tend to agree. I've met the finest/gentlemen hunters carrying sxs's, especially fine guns. I certainly don't judge anyone by their choice of shotgun, but I've found my observations certainly true.

Shooting at something too far off will "shackle" (loosen) your gun.

Sorry Aaron, but there really is a split second's difference with an O/U, getting on target for the second shot, when you shoot the bottom barrel first. That's the reason Perazzis that don't have a selective trigger are set up to shoot the bottom barrel first. Sometimes a split second's advantage is enough.

And, long barrels do shoot harder, further. A 32" gun will shoot harder 6 inches further than a 26" gun, all else equal. laugh

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

This isn't stated as a falsehood ...........

Billy Perdue was a pigeon shooter extraordinaire. He was one of the few that still used a S X S, in his era, and enjoyed a good degree of success in the USA and abroad. He stated something to this effect: "Flyer shooting is a game of elevation, primarily. Two barrels (in the line of sight) gives a better reference of elevation than one barrel does." That is not a direct quote, but is what I remember of an interview with him many years ago. Paul might be able to better clarify, as he was a close friend of Billy's for many years.

I might add that decoyed ducks can be a situation where elevation adjustments are of great import, as well. I have had no small degree of success using S X Ss on decoyed ducks.
