The American Legion Post 10 In Boulder Co. Is looking for a used Remington
870 20 gauge with a 26 in barrel to use for women and children that want to shoot but do not have a gun. The trap range is open to the public on Sat. and Sun. and we get several new shooters. A donated gun would be wonderful but we do have $250 allocated for the purchase----Please email if you can help---- Thanks Norbert

xtand 99 , instead of the 870 think about 1100 youth model . they are more friendly to shoot for kids and women , less recoil .Good luck Jay

I second the suggestion for an 1100 youth model. A slip-on pad would lengthen the stock for larger shooters. 870s can be vicious, due to their fixed breech and because they have too little pitch on their stocks for many shooters, especially women. They do however, introduce greater complexity into the shooting routine.

I also agree with the concern regarding club liability. It would probably be best to consult with an attorney.

Just as a thought have you considered contacting the local sporting goods store in the area. Not just any sporting goods store but the one (or ones) that could best help any new shooters if and when they would get the best service and help when and if they decided to take up the sport.

You might find that a local shop might be more than willing and happy to help you in what your looking for and use it an advertising opportunity for increased future business.
