Three-gun shotgun

Those of you who remember me from before the Great Forum Hiatus may recall that I'm hewn from rather cross-grained wood.

I've heard that a three-gun competition might be starting around where I am, and I'm considering taking part, but doing it the easy way doesn't really appeal to me. Therefore I'm thinking of using a sixgun, a lever action or maybe bolt action rifle, and a break action shotgun.

I have all of the above already, except the break action shotgun. Anyone have any recommendations? Single shot would be fine by me.

Maybe a Thompson/Center chambered in 12 gauge?

Or maybe I could use the T/C as both rifle and shotgun, and change barrels on the course .... nah. That's cheating.

I'd love to hear about how that performs in pratice. My shotgun experience is very limited, alas. I'm actually just in the market for my first skeet/clays gun at the moment, so I'll keep an eye out while I'm researching and ping here if I spot anything that looks nifty. :) Let us know how it goes!
Anyone have any comment on 20 gauge vs 12 gauge (or 10 gauge) for shotguns for three gun competitions?
