We took out my daughters Pink 870 youth 20 gauge from winter storage. She loves this gun, it has "shoot like a girl... if you can!" engraved in the stock. The gun was almost 1 1/4 inch too short for her now. She broke down in tears. I have added an adjustable butt pad to make up the difference, but have sadly told her this is the last year for the small gun. Next season I will have to find a regular 12 gauge for her to shoot trap with. I guess this is just par for course. We have been fielding calls from boys lately, so I guess I just have to realize..... My little girl is growing up. I still hate seeing this cute little shotgun becoming obsolete!
