    UNLESS YOU RELOAD 28GA THIS WILL BE EN EXPENSIVE VENTURE. I RECOMMEND AN 1100
    LT20 OR SPORTING 20. THERE ARE LOTS 4 SALE WITH OR WITHOUT YOUTH STOCKS
    WONT KICK ANYMORE THAN THE 20GA AND THE GUN WILL BE A FEW HUNDRED CHEAPER
    AND THE AMMO ALMOST HALF THE PRICE. I STARTED MY SON OFF WITH AN LT20 YOUTH WHEN HE WAS 10. LATER I BOUGHT A FULL SIZE STOCK AND HE STILL SHOOTS IT TODAY FOR SKEET AND CLAYS.

    I FORGOT TO MENTION....YOU CAN ADD A 20GA SLUG BARREL TOO FOR LITTLE BUCKS IF YOU ARE INCLINED. CAN'T DO THAT WITH A 28GA EITHER. DON'T GET ME WRONG...28GA HAS ITS PLACE. ON THE SKEET RANGE OR A GROUSE HUNT IT IS TOPS. BUT FOR TRAP ONLY IT WILL BE A WASTE OF MONEY AND A DISADVANTAGE TO BOOT. MY BOYS MOVED
    UP TO 12 GA AT 12 Y.O. AND NEVER LOOKED BACK.

    A 20ga will never recoil as light as a 28ga unless you load 3/4 OZ loads and although I have loaded 20 ga 3 /4 oz loads they didn't kick as light as my 28ga. If you are going to get a 20ga get the old standard frame 20ga with a 28inch Modified choke. 3/4 oz loads through this gun are a joy to shoot. I love the 28 and if you can get one I would, except for the fact that he will have to shoot a sporting clays stock which is less then I deal for trap. A standard weight 20 can have a full size 12ga MonteCarlo trap stock added to it as they were the same frame. Cut down the 12ga trap stock and keep the piece and add it back later when he grows. That is what I would do but soley because 20 ga emptys are cheap or free and 28's are seldom given away by anybody and are expensive.I taught my wife to shoot with a sporting 28 and she broke 17 or 18 her first time with factory Winchester AA skeet loads of 9's and she wasn't exactly a fast shooter either!! a 3/4 OZ load of 9's will break a 16 yard target even through a skeet choke a whole bunch farther then you would think. God luck whichever course you choose. Jeff

    If you would consider a pump gun,(so you don't have to chase empties) I've got a Remington 870 Wingmaster 20 gauge standard weight, with a 28 inch vent rib barrel, 3 Briley thin-wall chokes (only up to about light mod, so you might want to buy one with more constriction), $410 shipped to your FFL.
