She's been shooting my buddies 870 20 gauge and the gun really fits her good and is comfortable. She's got an old softball injury in her right shoulder so recoil is a big issue so a 12 gauge is out of the question. My question is this will a 20 gauge be enough gun for bringing down ducks. Also will I be able to find steel shot easy enough in 20 gauge shells. Thanks for any input.
