It is sad. I am 34 and just got my first shotgun. Please don't be too harsh! Mossberg 88 with the 18 1/2" barrel. I am not familiar with shotguns very much I have only shot one once before years ago. I have primarily been a handgun guy but decided it was time to branch out. I plan to study it a bit before I go out and shoot it. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
