    nailer,

    You can do this, but there's a better alternative, and that's a youth 1187 or a short stocked Beretta 3901.

    Very soft recoil.

    major spoeting good stores have the youth synthetic stocks about 50 to 90 bucks, I started my wife on a 870 added weight to it and used AA feather light and sts managed recoil loads to reduce recoil. then bought her auto(browning gold) if I had known about the 3901 from beretta I would have got that.
