The 16 gauge shotgun still exists

16-gauge shotgun: Not gone, and not forgotten The first gun I ever fired was a single-shot 16 gauge shotgun that had belonged to my father when he was a boy. I thought it was too much, until I tried his 12 gauge side-by-side; I couldn't even hold the thing.

The 16 gauge society is a clearing house for information on this neglected weapon.

If the features and ammo available for the 12 gauge were to become available for the 16, I would seriously consider switching. I am not a small person, yet I find a 12 gauge can be a bit much. I have to say that I do like the ugly-as-sin, no-nonsense, pump-action Mossberg Persuader.
