My friend ,His 12 yr old son and I went shootin yesterday.I shot 25/25! Whhohoo! My friend shot 20/25. Then his kid wanted to try it. After we gave him a quick heads up on safety and let him shoot my Mossberg 500 12 ***** a few times just to know how it feels he said he was ready to try the clays.This kid has never shot anything more than a BB gun.Kid shot 19/25 and a 17/25!Impressed me to say the least.
