Re: Need some help...
Well I am glad to see I am not going crazy here. I don't hate autos, I just had a bad experience with one early on in my hunting "lessons" with a jam that held me up through a flock of geese. Took forever to clear and I missed out on the only flock that came in on my first goose hunt. Gun shot well before and shot well after as it still does today. I simply have more faith in my old faithful Wingmaster.
I do admit I am limited on my knowledge of shotguns though. I guess I found something that worked and quit looking as my obsession fell to rifles and long range accuracy rather than shotguns.
Anyway thanks for the ideas so far. I will look them up and shoot them her way in hope of sparking a idea in her mind.
Old Grump, it won't help to tell her she can't have it if she can't shoot it because she can and will shoot anything. She is pretty damned accurate too. She shot my friends .50 S&W with hot loads and a slight flinch after the first round. She shoulders my fathers 12 gauge Nova with 3.5" Turkey loads without complaint so that isn't really an issue. She has also been able to work the actions of all the semi-autos she has looked at so far. Her arms are a little short to shoulder them all right but she accepts that and moves on. About the only issue she has had is loading the 11th and 12 rd into one of my Springfield XD mags and even I think they are pretty tight. Unlike my wife, I would take my pickup over a corvette any day just because I wouldn't have a problem taking my pickup in the field but I would have a problem taking a vette on a good dirt road!
Thanks again for the suggestions, I look forward to any more too.
