View Full Version : my wife's first shotgun!

July 19, 2012, 03:55 PM
Remington 11-87 Compact 20 gauge.

I'm quite excited for my wife, she showed interest in shooting clays and doves so I wanted to make the gun feel all hers. Splash Graphics did the Muddy Girl pattern, and a fine job they did. The front sight is an Easy Hit.

I might even have to shoot it a few times!

Pretty cool... that a dip or spray application?

Nice. Add some wear marks for GPs.

Any of the sub gauge 1100s makes a great first shotgun, and often an equally good choice for last shotgun...

Like the dip job....if that is what it takes to get more women shooting and voting on our side, then make 52% of the guns sold pink, since they make up that much of the population

Looks good, but, personally, I would lose that light pipe at the end - new shooters spend too much time looking at that instead of the target or live bird - if the gun fits right, she needs to be focused hard on the target, not the muzzle
