need recommendations for a shotgun for a lady

Postby norcalweaz » Thu Mar 03, 2011 10:07 pm

my girlfriend is 5'3" and a normal size shotgun is a little big for her. she has shot clays with it but she wants something a little more comfortable. what do you girls shoot? i am trying to go with a 12 gauge but i'll see what kind of responses i get. also has anyone modified a normal stock to fit? thanks

Im 5' 3 and I shoot a Mossberg 20 gauge semi auto. I love it. Not bulky at all and its pretty light...hardly and recoil that I notice. I've tried 12 gauges and they always seemed to not fit right. Good luck!

I would think that whatever brand you chose, an auto would be the softest for her shoulder. My 935 Mossy is very low recoil.
