The problem I see with a SxS is the reload. It is slow to reload. You have to remember if it has ejectors or not. (Many don't, esp. cowboy action shotguns). You've only got two rounds to use, initially. How to carry your spare rounds. On hammerless guns when the action is closed it is automatically in condition three, making it inherently more dangerous for the uninitiated (such as most children). If you have different loads in each barrel do you remember which barrel has which load? Which trigger, assuming double triggers, fires which barrel? If single trigger, which barrel fires first? Will recoil be a factor? Most SxS are lighter than repeating weapons but still use the same loads resulting in more perceived recoil.
