  4. Gun Stores & Gunsmiths
    Hey guys, looking to pick up a used/beater shotgun from a LGS. Seems like its often cheaper to buy a whole gun than just a new barrel for my Mossberg 500. Plus I'd rather support a local store than buy a new Maverick 88 for the same price from a big box store. Anybody know of a store with a...

    I shoot trap/skeet with a Mossberg 12ga but it is a bit long and heavy, and the kick is a bit much, for my wife. I was thinking of getting her a 20ga youth gun, specifically the Maverick 88 youth 20ga. Thoughts and opinions would be most welcome. Thanks! Mark
