shot gun question
Jimmy, it will work just fine.
Now, Is it ideal for trap shooting? Are you going to shoot occasionally or start shooting a lot (for score or fun)? For you or a child? Is the barrel threaded for choke tubes? Does it fit the person shooting it? Have you patterned it? Typically what I'm finding out with the athletes starting on the team. When we pattern a 20g the full choke is the way to go.
Otherwise, if your looking for a reason to purchase another gun. A 12g would be better. Little more payload. So, NO. it will not work! Lol..
My 20ga semi auto (28") has virtually no felt recoil due to the design of the ejection system. My wife shoots a 20ga pump youth model with a 22" barrel and because it fits her well, she says she doesn't notice the recoil at all.
