The shotgun I've used for years is a Rossi poly stocked single shot 20ga that I cut down(18.5") and jug choked to a light mod(tighter than IC, but not quite tight enough to be called modified). Made for a nice, light package that didn't catch on all the brush, and could take just about anything in the NE. And, it also kicks like a mule(bound to happen. It was only 4lbs to start with, and I took quite a bit of weight off when I shortened it). Which is a problem nowadays. I have a stent in the right side of my neck, and the doc said that excessive recoil could jar it loose. And that would be bad. Like stroke and death kinda bad. So I want to avoid that. And normally that's not an issue. Most of my hunting is with handguns(a non issue) or with light recoiling rifles(which aren't a problem). But waterfowl, upland game, and turkey are basically(and legally) shotgun only sports, and my only shotgun is a no go for me. So I'm in the market for a shotgun that doesn't kick too bad. Probably going to want to stick with 20ga(or maybe 16ga), and even though I hate how much it would limit me on waterfowl and turkey loads, I probably want to stay away from 3" mags. And, as much as I prefer a short, light gun, I realize that longer and heavier is the way to go. Any suggestions?
