  • Help picking a shotgun for a small woman

    I am a 4'11 and small, looking for a new shotgun for turkey hunting. I am currently going on my 3rd year of turkey hunting (no luck so far :/ ) and looking for something easier for me to lift and shoot. I use a mossberg 500 currently, and it's just a bit too heavy and long for me to lift using a turkey barrel. Using my slug barrel for hunting deer is fine. Hopefully you guys have some recommendations of a balance between something lighter to lift but without a huge recoil to knock me back. Also, I'm young, I can't exactly afford much more than $600 in a gun.

    Hello dark fire. You have a lot options out there with all the youth models. If you like Mossberg they have a bantam 20 gauge. Pair that with the right choke and shells you will be able to take out a gobbler. With regard to recoil some chokes are available with ports. Adding a recoil pad will help as well. Before buying handle a few in person. Good luck and have fun hunting!
