    Looking for a youth 20 gauge so I can get my little guy behind the trigger on a turkey next season. Let me know what you have and what you are looking to get for it

    I bought a Remington 870 Youth model. It fits all 3 of my kids great. Alex could shoot it at age 7 and it still fits Abby at 11, and she's 100# and almost as tall as Bridget. When they grow out of it it will be a solid reaping gyn for myself.

    As stated above buying an adult model and putting a smaller stock on is a great idea.

    I had to use some padding and athletic tape to build the stock up a bit. Made it really easy for the kids to settle in when shooting. [​IMG][​IMG]

    1DFEEBC1-4F17-46D1-9F93-624B42751D87.jpeg I went with a Remington 11-87 youth for a little less recoil for 3 in turkey loads and slugs. Has adjustable shims to adjust length of pull and screw in chokes. Killed a pile of gobblers with it and lots of clay birds. Does pretty dang well with slugs too. Better than I would of thought. Got the youngest behind it now waiting for one of the 3 turd gobblers behind us to shut up and come in.

    We did the exact same gun. Came with a slug barrel too which will come in handy this fall. Gun worked great and 870’s take a beating and keep going.

    Thanks guys. I was thinking the 870 too. Like that Tristar option, looks like a sweet little gun!!!

    I looked at the 11-87 pretty hard as well but opted for the cheaper route. Either one will be GREAT.
