When I was 12, I got my first 12 gauge shotgun. My son is turning 14, and I plan on getting him a 12 gauge. We won't be using it for hunting or skeet shooting, just target practice. Should I get him one with sights or a rib and what barrel size?
The 20 ga. below would be a strong recommendation. Good for damn-near anything and it'll be useful for a lifetime. They make different barrel lengths and have a slug barrel with rifle sights combo set too.
Thanks for all the information guys. I have a lot to think about now. Another question I have is will a full size gun fit him, or does he need a youth sized gun, cause id love to get him a 870, Since it was my first gun. He's 5'3 and 135 pounds.
