So....

Been trying to find the wife a 20 gauge semi to go play with Clays. Some work friends and I have been doing Trap and 5 Stand. No delusions of grandeur, just for once a week fun.

Wife wanted to play, so I have been looking out for a 20 ga Tristar Viper G2 Youth Sporting, but no luck.

We ended up in the Wally World and saw a 28 ga Hatfield semi auto, for that price it came home. She has shot a box or two through it and loves it, has no recoil. I shot a half box or so and it’s a very fun little gun which can nail 16 yd trap decent. And the price, yes cheap, $225ish. Don’t have any long term expectations, but she likes the lack of recoil. I figure it should last until I can find the Viper.

Now all I have to do is get her over pulling the trigger when someone says pull(even her)!!

They had one at my local walmart but I never got to look at it before it was gone. Now of course you can't get anything in by ordering. I looked at their website and they also have a 410 version. Every kind of ammo is sold out at walmart except for 28ga on the shelf and sometimes 16ga. I had a Hatfield 20ga and it shot fine at 5 stand. I had a Viper G2 28ga and shot it at the same time as the Hatfield on 5 stand. I was only one shooting, so I would go 1 through 5 and then reverse and go 5 through 1 stations and then back again plus additional targets thrown especially the rabbit along the ground bouncing and jumping. I had gotten a Rossi double barrel 28ga, the only one I have ever seen, so still shoot 28ga. 410 shells have gotten extremely scarce with a box going for $75 on ammoseek but I still have a stash and shoot some in my Hatfield 410 pump shotgun.
I still have a Viper G2 20ga and will probably try to get another viper g2 28ga or even a Hatfield if I can find one. I did find a Remington 870 Express 16ga at a pawn shop last summer for $200 in mint condition and actually found more Remchokes for it one of the local gun stores in Baton Rouge. I also managed to find 10 boxes of Brenneke slugs for the 28ga back in the good ole days of pre-corona and pre-Biden in 2019.
