Ok,i am a kid (in the double digits).And I am looking for a good shotgun to knock out some waterfowl,turkey,and maybe...... even deer. I have shot muzzleloaders, a glock (which is a pistol,FYI)and a 22. caliber. I also HATE recoil.Thats why I am looking for a 20 gauge shotgun.Yes,i have saved up about 350$.I was looking a the Remington 870 youth compact JR 20 gauge. Can you guys tell me if the Remington 870 20 gauge is a good no-recoil gun?I can take some recoil but not a ton.And how good is the gun overall?If you can,please answer all my questions and give me a pros and cons list of the Remington 870 20 gauge.Thanks guys I really appreciate it.
First off the 870 is a great gun the 20 ga has little recoil but it is about $350. If you want to hunt deer you would probably need to get a slug barrel which for a 870 would cost an additional $150. I started with a 20 ga but i had a Mossberg 500 mini bantam my Grandpa bought for me he paid i think $300 with the slug barrel and the nice thing about that gun is it has a section where you can put an extension on the stock to make it longer when you grow. Otherwise good luck and happy hunting.
Thanks...something about the Mossberg just bugs me, and I love Remingtons,so now I'm asking for a Remington 870 for Christmas.I am so excited!That gun is all I am asking for (besides some geese/duck calls)!
