Gun weight is not an issue on driven hunts or tower shoots, because you are not moving around much. However, hunters walking for several hours behind pointing or flushing dogs may want to lean toward the break action shotgun because of their lighter weight. They typically weigh a pound or more less than pumps and semi-autos. Overall they are also shorter which allows a quick and short mount to the shoulder needed for close flushing birds.
