    Wife and I both new to trap. Starting to shop for BT99's.
    Wife is 5'4", Has short arms. I'm 5'7"
    I understand the Micro has shorter LOP. Are other parts of the Micro stock also scaled down, such as hand grip areas?

    It's easier to find standard BT99 and have LOP reduced if that's the only difference.

    I had a micro and the recoil was pretty stiff. I would recommend at Beretta 3901 RL for your wife. It has the shorter LOP and very mild recoil. If you don't wnat to have the hulls hitting the other people you can get a shell catcher and that will stop that problem. Just my 2 cents.

    Gib, 1st congrats to BOTH of you.

    One of the very, Very, VERY best investments you can make for any woman shooter (and you, too) that is not 6' and 165+ is a Wenigs twisted-sister stock in the wimmin's and kid's configuration.

    For a BT-99, they are a stock item, and regular 99s are pretty easy to find, and pretty cheap if you can find a 32" bbl, which would probably work better for her, anyhow.

    Shoot 1100fps 1oz (or 7/8, even) loads of #8½, and you can run 200 ... if Y'ALL can point the gun.

    Bob
