youth shotguns

I was thinking of purchasing a youth 20 gauge shotgun for kids. My question is should I purchase an adult model with say a 24 in. barrell and put a youth stock on it? The reason I ask is the youth models have a 20in. barrell and the thought of a stiff recoil on a new young shooter concerns me. Any input would be a great help! Thanks

go with the longer barrel. they will grow into it. .410 shotguns are also good for the youth starting out.

When I go hunting I am gone for the WHOLE day.
Hunting is not a sport it's a tradition.

I saw a shot gun that had an interchangeable barrel one was regular and a shorter I cant remember the measurements but the picture looked like it was a pretty big difference

get the bigger one

your kids will grow out of a youth model real quick.
I recommend the regular version

someone mentioned a rossi that had several barrels

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

Use longer barrels. I have 4-10, and that works.

I need a deer!
