I have seen the full length tubes used by skeet and sporting clays shooters, though I believe they can only be used in break action shotguns. There used to be chamber adapters, however, which only fit the chamber section of the gun so that the shot charge traveled down the guns own bore. I don't know how they pattern, but they were available in a wide variety of configurations. And if you only load one at a time, you could fire them in a pump. If they're still on the market, Brownells might be worth a look.

Savage made the "410er" for many years. it was a fairly short(about a foot) 410 adapter for 12 ga. break actions.

I had a friend who picked up 16 gauge shells by mistake... so he wrapped them with duct tape and tried them in his 20 gauge. nice browning bottom eject type pump shotgun ruined beyond repair.

beings they are pumps, as some suggested reduced recoil loads is a nice option. another would be, see if your wife would like her own shotgun, maybe in 20ga. then the two of you could shoot and practice together. BTW, my wife likes shooting my 12ga pump, but hates my 12ga O/U shotguns!

I have seen those 20ga/410 adapters for 12 gauge shotguns a few years ago,I also remember seeing a .44mag adapter for a 12 gauge--I can't imagine that being much good for anything.

Rufus,

I would suggest getting her a good 20 ga. Semi Auto. Like a Remington 1100.
It's going to last a long time and she can hunt, shoot clays or whatever. The new shotguns have the 3" chamber and will fire the standard 2 3/4 light loads and higher power loads. There are other great semis out there. That are of good quality and in a decent price range.
