Shotgun for 8 year old?

Postby glen1978 » Thu Oct 10, 2013 3:03 pm

Hey guys looking for a little pump for my girlfriends son. He is gona be 8 in December and is a decent sized boy. He wants to get into duck huntin with me. Just wana get him a cheap pump 20g he can start on. Looked at a Remington 870 youth and its just a little muzzle heavy....he has a hard time holdin it up. Believe it was 21" bbl. I saw a Maverick 20g at Cabelas for sub $200 and it was a lot lighter than the Remy seemed like to me. Any of yall buying these for the kids or wife? Any issues?

Maverick is basically a cheap made Mossberg if that tells you anything. I would further. At least a Mossberg 500. I think they make a bantam.
