Well yes I'm knowledge on shotguns, but its just I need some help on this type of shotgun I have not used before. So, please bare with me. I'm looking for a .410 to mess with, shoot some 000 buckshot and have a shotgun my girlfriend can shoot comfortably. So, I was thinking possibly getting the Mossberg 505 [youth model] because her, and mine too, arms aren't that long. My full size maverick 88 is comfortable for me, but its really long. Anyway. I wanted opinions on the M500 .410/M505 youth .410. Thanks for any help. It's appreciated. S.S.
