Had a similar experience. Found a Charles Daly 20ga auto in youth configuration and had a one inch Pach recoil pad installed along with porting the barrel. I know, spent more on the extras then the gun. Fits her very well, has little recoil and she loves bustin' clays.
Does she want to go all the time, no. So it works out well for both of us.
