My boy is not big and that is why I decided to pony up and go with the 870. I had been kicking around the idea of a H&R or Rossi singleshots but the recoil would be significantly more. The 870 was quite a bit more money but he is only going to get his first gun once and it might as well be memorable.
Thanks for all the replies. I'll look for the Fiocchi and Estate locally before ordering it.
