    The first shotgun I've found that fit her properly. $324 after tax.

    Shown here, next to my Red Ryder BB gun for scale.

    It's a 20 ga (3") Stoeger Condor (Compact). I did some reading online and found that the quality was hit or miss when it came to the lockup. Fortunately this one seems to lock up tight. Price also seems to be about in line with other sources. Now I need to research choke tubes for her. Right now it's IC & M.

    The wood seems to be of good quality, although the finish is not outstanding. Also it's marred around the clearly home-installed recoil pad. :sad2:

    We plan to take it to the range this weekend. :cool:

    The condors use standard invector type screw-in chokes.


    I actually really like my 12ga Condor. It's no $100,000 gun, but I hit what I aim at with it.

    wtf are you talking about? Cars? :gtfo:

    Meanwhile, i think I've figured out that these take the Mossberg-Winchester chokes. Pretty sure anyway. What's that shotgun forum? :o
