If she's already familiar with the Mossberg 500 I say get her another Mossy 500 but in 20ga. They can easily be had for less than $400.

If you decide to get a 20 ga mossberg buy a combo. It's usually only $40 more to get a combo with 2 barrels. If you just buy a barrel it will cost around $100 used.

You will have to get very lucky to find a Christmas present pretty semi auto for $400.

Oh I didn't even think it would be a semi-auto. He didn't specify, so I personally was talking about a pump.

Yeah she's using a pump 12 gauge right now I think a semi would be much better for her I wonder if I can find one under 400.00

Just don't follow Joe Biden's advice and get her a double barrel.

Should she fire it as Joe sez, she could be in for a little legal trouble if you reside within city limits.
