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?

Long barrels shoot "harder". Well, maybe a little but progressive powders do fine in short barrels too...Geo

You must have short barrels if you hunt around brush or woods. A .410 is the perfect starter gun for a youngster. A 28 hits harder than a 20 or 12. Two triggers are too hard to learn.

A 'clean breech face' facilitates loading.

Sideclips cut your fingers.

A straight stock is so you can move your hand to get to the other trigger.

Shot patterns 'converge'.

That must have been done by a trap shooter.

SXS shooters need a handicap because O/U's break more clays.

Now now, follow the rules!

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