She's shot a 12 guage before and that was way too much for her. I was thinking a side by side .410 or 20 gauge

I got the Mossberg 500 20ga for my wife a couple years ago... It is a great gun...

The one nitpicky thing I am dealing with right now is the safety slide has a screw in it that you can't loosen without a lot of trouble... Hers got loose at one point, so I tightened it... I realized I tightened it too much, and went to loosen it again and realized I couldn't... Gonna have to take a dremel to it now to fix it up...

and no, that second paragraph is not what she said...

I've got a 'maverick 88' which is basically a moss 500 only made with Mexican parts in Texas. No frills, and got it brand new less than 200 bucks at the walmart. 18.5" barrel ordering the longer one later.

never said i would rely on it, but its a good scare tactic..

No offense, but with my security weapons I always have a round in the chamber ready to go - no need to do anything more than flick off the safety and pull the trigger.

None taken. I'd prefer not to because I have a 2 1/2 yo daughter that gets into everything. I have a few pistols and the only one that stays loaded and chambered is my glock 22 that I carry on a daily basis.

Actually I have two loaded and chambered.. I put one in a safe place downstairs so that my wife can get to it quickly if I'm not home.
