    Hi - just competed in my first sporting clay competition and fell in love. I had borrowed a gun...a 20-ga Benelli, and after 75 rounds am a little sore. I am a 5'6" female, about 135 lbs. Am looking for any recommendations for a "first" shotgun...would like something that won't need to be replaced anytime soon, won't leave me sore for days, but will get the job done. I know it will eventually come down to what feels best, but need a short list to give me a place to start looking. All input welcome and greatly appreciated! TIA!

    Did it have the Comfort Tech stock? My wife uses a Benelli SBE, 12 ga, and can easily shoot all day.

    The Remington listed above would be a great start. I bet the scratch on the reciever of that gun came ffrom a shell catcher by looking at it.

    It comes from working at a trap/skeet range for several years.The only other thing that was good about that job was getting to shoot a variety of guns.
