New Shooter

Recommended Posts

A pump is always a good choice for a first shotgun, and the Nova is an excellent model.

 

Just work your way up to the 3.5" loads.

If you go from .22's to 3.5's in one step, there will be a Nova for sale in Canada in about 46 days ;)

Matt,

 

Be aware that the 3.5” may not be needed any longer due to hybrid shot shells.

Therefore, you can look at SBEII, M2, Cordoba or Sport2.

 

Only you can decide which gun feels more balanced and allows you to quickly sight in on the target.

 

Sorry, but any of the choices listed above will suit your needs.

Never have had a problem with the birds seeing my black Nova. Besides, if you have a blind worth going to, the color of the gun should be of little interest to anyone.

You might consider "reduced recoil" or perhaps "light" field loads (used to be callled low brass) for your first experience with a 12ga shotgun. 150lbs is plenty of beef to take normal recoil, but since you have no idea what to expect it might not be a bad idea to start light. 12 gauge is extremely versatile ... great choice. You can shoot everything from real light stuff to skeet, trap, haymaker goose & turkey loads, and effective deer slugs too. Great gun, great gauge, GOOD LUCK!!!
