H&R Parder youth pump?
Looking for a cheap shotgun for my daughter & found this $218 new
would like to know if anyone has an H&R pump gun & your thoughts on it?

Dont own one, yet. Its just a cheaper version of an 870 express. I've heard its actually better made than an 870 express: metal trigger guard, thicker receiver, better finish etc.. I've looked at getting one of the Pardner Protectors, the ones I've looked at seem pretty nice for $200.

Thanks I may just get one if I can upgrade it with a full size butt stock for when she gets older & for when I whant to use it. funny thing I saw was it takes Mossberg/winchester/browning chokes
thought most of the cheaper guns like my Charles daly took Remington
at least it does use a common choke

Well it looks like I will be getting two of them going to pick up the pardner 20Ga for my daughter & the Excell semi for me wish they had the excell in 20 Ga my daughter really wants us to have a matching set (GIRLS HUH)
I guess she will have to live with matching camo just glad she hates pink

SEARCH Continues
well was told Friday the Pardner youth pumps have been discontinued So looks like the young one is costing me more money looks like I will be ordering a new Mossberg youth 500-505 20 ga only a couple hundred more then I want to spend but hopefully in a couple weeks when she bags her first bird it will all be worth the money I spent

You could buy the full sized model then just switch the stock out for an 870 youth sized stock.

Like this...kind of expensive, but it's a really nice stock - Hogue OverMolded Stock Remington 870 with 12" Length of Pull Rubber Black - MidwayUSA

If you did decide to go with that stock I'd check with Hogue to make sure it would fit the 20 gauge model, because I heard it uses a smaller sized action than the 12 gauge.

You are crazy if you would choose a 870 over a weatherby and a mossberg over a pardner they are the same gun except pardners cheaper.:thumbup:

Don't you mean an 870 over a Weatherby/Pardner? Not a Mossberg over a Pardner? The Mossberg is different than the other three.
