Another vote for the semi, I see. Let me ask you this - in your honest opinion, is a semi-auto shotgun easy for a beginner to operate with minimal practice time? Genuinely curious
My Wife's only exp. with any Shotgun was as a kid with her Dad & Brothers on her dad's .22LR/.410 and .243/12Ga. Combos. When we bought the Mossberg SA-20 My wife said "I'm not gonna shoot it, so don't say your buying it for me to use"....
Well a year later and every range trip "what your not taking the 20???" At this point, If Defecation hit Oscillation, I'd put that in her hands before handing her a Rifle unless she had my Mini-14 and I had one of my Springfield's......She's also DEAD On at 50 Yards with the Rossi .410/45LC carbine...
Last week some "cooter boys" were giving her a hard time over a disabled spot(yeah,..I really wanna see a guy in an F-350 with two steps and a Disabled permit!!!) and he was going into his truck for his "rack em shack em" and my wife just said "The DIFFERENCE IS I ALREADY HAVE MINE OUT!!!!" good thing I wasn't there. (scene could have gone like..."Now Honey, remember what our shooting instructor told us! Never point a Gun at anything you don't plan on Destroying("BANG goes the SA-20,..hiss goes Cooter boy's Front tire on his pickup from a Herter's SD round with #0 & #2 shot.....") Just saying....
