Over and Under or Side by Side the best?

Many people are using Double Barrels these days. What are your thoughts on them and differences between the two?

For all around huntinng I prefer a sxs because I prefer a beavertail forend that most sxs have. As far as turkey hunting goes, I prefer a pump. Less weight to carry and only one barrel to site in, with the ease of putting a turkey choke in it. Most double barrels won't take extended tubes in both barrels, and your POA/POI isn't the greatest in both barrels.

I shoot both and like both types. When shooting any of the clays sports I much prefer O/U guns. I have a Fox SxS that I use occasionally for turkeys and for upland birds It's a very quick to the shoulder and it fits me as well as any gun that I shoot.

Over the years I've had more SxS guns than O/U guns but for the most part, I've liked them all. They're just different.
