I have shot shotguns. When I went shooting with Hunter Joe, he handed me a 16 gauge shotgun. I didn't like it. I also shot Bear's Quigly Sharps..........they huuuuuurrrt...........

After I shot Bear's Quigly he said, "That didn't hurt, did it?" Me: "YES!"

Your recoil problems are probably coming from poor fit. You would probably like a well fit 20 gauge with a good recoil pad. Same with the heavier calibers. I have always had to fit my wife's guns. I know 2 women that went through the Front Sight shotgun course and they fared better than most of the men. They were using properly fit tactical 12 gauge pumps with reduced recoil loads.

Just in case I head in the wrong direction, pack me in with the biggest watergun you can find.

I think that may be true. I don't think I'm able to get the butt of the long guns positioned properly on my shoulder. I have shot a shotgun that had a recoil pad and it was a bit more tolerable. I am pretty darned short..........only 4'11".

How about using your coffin as a "just in case" storage. You've got your favorite gun burried with you and you can tell the kids (ahead of time) you know where to find it if you need it. =)
