My son is 9 and has been trap shooting about 6 months now. boy is he good! The problem is his gun. I had a spare H&R single shot that first I sawed off the stock on. Then I made him a new stock altogether. It fits him perfect now but it still kicks like a mule. not much you can do about that with a single shot. It does have 2 recoil reducers in the stock and a good pad. He has used a freinds rem 1100 that was modified for a youth and really liked it. He also tried a custom winchester single barrel trap gun. He got his highest score ever on that one. All of the shotguns he has tried were 12 ga. and we want to stick with that. So what would all of you recommend for a good trap gun that he could grow old with? I would like to stay under 1000 dollars or not much over if possible.
