    So awhile back i posted a thread about how i only could use one hand and asked for recomendations about a shotgun that would be good for me. http://www.firearmstalk.com/forums/f26/shotgun-one-hander-53188/ you all gave me great ideas and i had narrowed it down to two. the Mossberg SA-20 and the H&R Pardener 20g. The only problem is, nobody has them in the gun shops around me and they say that they would have to special order them, but if i do that and the gun doesnt feel comfortable then i am kind of stuck with it. so i dont know what to do. If anyone has any ideas please let me know. should i just go with a more common one such as the 870 or Moss 500 which might be just a little more difficult to use because of the pump?

    Thanks guys!

    Best way to try befote you buy just for feel is to hit a gunshow or two. Someone is bound to have what your looking for so you can tell if it fits or not.

    If you wish to "Try before you buy" go to your local range or rod and gun club, or find a friend who has what you are looking to buy. Offer to spring for the ammo and set up a time and place to try it out. I have never passed up some range time, especially when another person is splitting the ammo cost. all of the folks I shoot with have the same mindset.
