After I get my jeep fixed I think I want to get out more often so what would be better than a 4wd and a 20GA:D any recommendations for a good cheap fast light 20 GA for jack rabbits single shot OK looking for value.

I was gonna say Remington 1100 or 1187 but if you want a single shot I have no idea. Maybe try New England arms?

The Pardner is a low cost single shot.

looks good been over to gunbroker lots of good deals over there. Wonder if there is any difference in accuracy with these economy single shots? Lots of models to chose from

Why would you choose a 20 ga over a 12ga? Big 5 has a 12 ga H&R Pardner for a $119.
I'm not a shot gun guy hence the dumb question.

H&R's from Big 5 are not to shabby for a good truck shotty.

Big5 also has the Mossberg 500 Pump for $279 with a 28" and 18.5" barrel. You can get it in 12ga or 20ga for the same price.
I have the 12ga and will be getting the 20ga soon for my chick

figure there would be more meat left on a rabbit if blasted with a 20 ga vs 12 ga--maybe there is a lighter 12 ga load I am unaware of but that big 5 deal looks good.

There are plenty of light loads for a 12ga. Either 12ga or 20ga will work fine. Use lighter "target" loads if that is your concern. "Heavy Game Loads" will have more punch.
