      Yes, I'd say some good brand of 12 ga. pump. You can get different barrels for different kinds of hunting and a good short barrel, open choke for home defense.

        I have a Mossberg 20 gauge as the house gun. My wife can shoot it, so can my daughter. I keep it with an IC choke and loaded with 5 rounds of #4 shot. At distances less than 30-40 feet, it puts big holes in targets that I shoot. I've also killed a bunch of quail, rabbit, squirrel, and pheasant with it. I have a rifled slug barrel for it and my daughter used it one year to go deer hunting with me. She decided she was not a hunter, but the bright side is I got anew barrel that is almost like getting a new gun.

          A 12 gauge shotgun,pump or auto, should do the trick.

                There's certainly nothing wrong with a 20 gauge

                    In years past, I would have picked my 870 as an all around. But, if hunting is limited to deer and pigs, then the AR in .300 Blackout would be my choice.

                      Would be too tough on small game though
