That and it really only takes three or so seconds to reload a shotgun.
I prefer my savage 12 gauge pump for pheasant. Side-by-sides are great for upland game; but most working-class people cannot afford them.
ETA: Have you ever heard someone fire off a 12 or larger gauge shotgun shell? They make a pretty beefy noise.

Um, did you know that the higher the gauge, the smaller the bore? So, a 16-gauge is actually smaller
than a 12 gauge. And yes, I've hunted
with a 10-gauge goose gun. But 12s are so common it is practically impossible to find a 10 or an 8 without buying an antique or collectible.
I can tell you, based on my experience in law enforcement, that the sound or sight of a firearm does NOT deter crime; in fact, it often goads the
assailant to violence....
2 or 3 seconds to reload, when you are being attacked, is an eternity. An attacker can cover 15 yards in 2 or 3 seconds. Most deadly confrontations
in law enforcement take place at a range of less than 10...
