Is a 20-gauge shotgun more powerful and accurate than a 12-gauge shotgun?

Answer

A 20 gauge is not more powerful and more accurate than a 12 gauge. A 12 gauge is much more powerful and they have the same accuracy. My husband has a 12 gauge and it's too powerful for me, it kicks way too hard. I have a 20 gauge and it's perfect for me and my son. When we go to the range and shoot, my husband will shoot with both guns and the accuracy really is the same on both of them.
