10 Great Youth Shotguns For Every Budget

10 Great Youth Shotguns For Every Budget

Looking for a new shotgun for the young hunter in your family? Here are some great youth guns to consider

Not too long ago, any kid who wanted to carry a shotgun in the woods had to lug around dad's full-size model that was too long, too heavy and just too cumbersome. It's a wonder any young hunter stayed in the sport.

Thankfully, gun manufacturers are appealing to future generations through trendy and practical offerings ranging from basic, time-tested, break-open single shots to rapid-cycling auto-loaders. Whatever you choose for your pint-sized companion, rest assured, a variety of shotguns designed for young or small-framed shooters will keep your little buddy in the field until he outgrows that shotgun you bought him for his birthday. Here's a look at ten youth shotguns that fit into any family's budget.
