I have been thinking for a while I need to get a shotgun for the wife. She is not really a shooter, but I want to ease her into it. I have taken her shooting with me a handful of times and think it is probably about time to get her a gun of her own. I want the least kicking shotgun I can put in her hands. Anyone have any experience with the Tristar? I was going to get her a 20 gauge auto with a youth stock. Figured I wanted something that did not kick much. I saw a Tristar at the Tampa gun show last weekend and it seemed very reasonably priced. I think it was $400 out the door which is considerably cheaper than even used 1100's. I would like to get her the least kicking shotgun I can find. OTOH, I was thinking about getting her something somewhat nicer (Browning Silver). I have a B80 I have had for ~25 years and have had no issues with it. From everything I have read I think the Browning Silver would be the "ideal" gun if money was no object and I knew she was going to stick with it. I guess it just boils down to the question as to whether the Tristar is a decent gun or not. The extra $600 to $800 for a Browning might not be worth it if she puts it down after going out a few times.
