I enjoy shooting sxs hammer guns.  They pump out the memories as fast as I can cock the hammers... :chuckle:




I'm sorry but that shotgun is just beautiful.

Browning BPS, one in 20 ga and one in 12 ga, 25 and 30 years now.  I like the BPS as it is ambidextrous.  The safety is on top and it ejects out the bottom.  I shoot right handed and my wife shoots left handed and both of us can use either.

KF, the BPS would be perfect for her.  She could then try shooting both ways.  I bought a youth model in 20 ga for my wife to shoot clay pigeons mostly and she was extremely comfortable with it.  If it helps, she is 5' 4".

Mines a stout 5'9 maybe a tad more now and might not be done growing. I think she's plenty strong enough to swing a full size.

If you can get an original 870 wingmaster or one of its variants- go for it. Probably the single best, least problematic shotguns ever made. I would stay away from any recent (mid 1990's-current) versions, 870 super mag or the like. They are just not the same gun anymore.

Benelli Nova's are pretty indestructible guns. Well worth what they cost.
Still using my 1974 870 wingmaster, never a failure. Still works like fresh out of the box.

I don't use it for ducks, anymore but I've ben shooting an 870 express for this or that since the mid 1990s. I've never had any problem with it, ever.

I don't know what the brand or gauge is, I only know the sound it makes as I kill something :chuckle:
