What do you want it for?
Home defense,to take her dove hunting?

I'm interested in acquiring a home defense shotgun in 20ga so the wife can handle it.
I haven't had much luck in finding a tactical shotty in 20ga..

I have a 20 ga 870 thats a womens/youth model and its been a great gun over the years. Im only 5'5 and it fits me great. It came with a 20" vent rib barrel and I picked up a slug barrel for it last year. Ive had the gun since 1995 and its getting passed nto my daughter.

We got one... I shot it one handed and she uses two hands, but only has a pistol grip on it..

For a pump action shotty for a woman, you can't go wrong with the 870 Youth model (21" barrel with black synthetic "short" stock. Add an extension tube and you have a 7+1 20ga home defense shotty).

For a semi-auto shotty for a woman, look at the 11/87 Sportman/Youth model (again, 21" barrel with black synthetic "short" stock with an extension to get you to 7+1 20ga home defense shotty).

Same guns for "dove" hunting with a longer barrel! :)
