you are expected to know the rules, and are punished, without

mercy, for infractions.
Alright thanks man that helps!

Check to see if there are any junior shotgun clubs in your area. They field competitive teams and usually get sponsorship. It is a great way to learn and it can defray some of the costs for ammo. NRA is a major sponsor. We have a very active one where I live in AZ and they shoot nationally. Our local Friends of the NRA committee has managed to get them several grants. The ranges will also know if there are any around. Ask your parents to get you a junior membership in the NRA. Good luck.

Surely it is still legal for parents or grandparents to purchase a shotgun or rifle, wrap it up and place it under the tree for Li'l Johnny or Susie to open on Christmas morning like my parents did for me 40 years ago.

Nova is a basic model.

Supernova has more bells & whistles, ComfortTech stock, etc.

Both are great for self mutilation shooting 3.5 inch shells.

My personal opinion is find a used Remington 870 (pump) or 1100/1187 (semi-auto). You can get different barrels for these for different sports, very easy to change. 28" barrel with "rem choke" for trap, skeet, etc. 20" slug barrel for deer. Great combination, and probably won't break the bank.

How much do they usually go for on average for a nice one? And how much o you think just a barrel would cost?
Thanks

Remington barrels can be expensive. Even express barrels that look like they have been bead blasted and it might not line up with the receiver are over $150. I paid $250 for a skeet barrel for an 870 Wingmaster just last year. A Wingmaster barrel is polished and it fits the gun.
