Plan to start my daughter on a 20 guage this summer. If all goes well, get a few days in the dove field and a few in the duck blind. Ive asked some guys around, ive heard the weatherby sa-08 several times as well as Mossberg 500. Semi may be better option for less recoil with waterfowl loads. If I go that route ill stick with loading a single shell at a time the first year. Id really like a made in usa but not a must. Definitely dont want junk as it'll see lots of use in the duck blind over the next few years and a son coming up after the daughter to use it. She just turned 7 but she's tall and lankey. What advice you got, what does your youngins' shoot?? Thanks.
