Hi guys i was wondering if a maverick 88 pump action 12 gauge shotgun is a good gun for hunting fox and coyote and white tail deer because as these would be my prime targeted animals. And if so do you all think its to big of a gun,what i mean is do you think it has too much recoil,for a 14 year old 125 lbs. boy. thanks for all the help guys.

ps.(not meaning to sound weird by adding in my wieght,thanks for the help.)

It should be fine, but FWIW, you can get a "real" Mossberg for just a few $$$ more. The Mavericks are a spin-off of Mossberg and use the same barrels and chokes, but they aren't built to quite the same quality standards. A plus though, is the fact that they are built in the U.S.

The Maverick is a good shotgun for the money. I've had one for several years, and I like it every bit as much as any other pump shotgun. In fact, this upcoming weekend I plan on taking it duck hunting.

the maverick 88 is a fine shotgun for least amount of money, mossberg barrels will interchange, they make good barrels
