I'm 80 and have the usual arthritic issues at this age. The 20 gauge, along with an added Limbsaver air? pad has eliminated almost all of the recoil that I worried about.

Since I have been shooting Skeet and Trap, I've read that I'll get more birds with a 12 gauge (more pellets). So far, though, I couldn't be more pleased. For me, it is a great starter gun.

As time goes on, I may buy a better gun. We shall see.
Buy ya better gun when ya wear that Yildiz out!........i find i don't break any more with the 12 than I do with the 20.........AND I'm creeping up on that with the 410.

Thanks, Happy. I knew when I bought the Yildiz (on the recommendation of another far more experienced shooter) that it was an entry-level gun. Since I had NO IDEA that I would like shooting so much, it was an inexpensive way to try things out.

I noticed that when I shot with 8 or 9 guys the other day, there were 8 or 9 different types of guns in the group.

I'd say half were semi-autos; the other half were O/U of various manufacturers. Some were 20 gauge, and some were 12. I actually like the 20 gauge so far, and some of those more experienced guys were hitting plenty of clays with the 20s. I shot a 17, which for my 5th time out, I was pretty happy with. regards, rich
