My daughter felt that the pistol grip made it easier to shoot her 870. I also put a LimbSaver slip pad on it, that made it much better.

The Beretta is one of the lightest low recoil gas guns made now.  This is coming from a Benelli owner.

clark at all about guns on this site used to sell a recoil pad called a Shooters Friend. My understanding was it was designed by an orthopedic doctor and provided unbelievable comfort and recoil reduction. May be able to find one and shoot any 20 gauge you like. Just research and ask around.

I have one. They are unbelievably effective. Only downside is that they are heavy - about 6 oz. I use one when patterning but don't won't to lug it around while hunting. It will definitely alter the balance of your shotgun, which might be a good thing if your gun is nose heavy.

My SX3 shoots 3" turkey loads (20 gauge) like light field loads.  Definitely a soft shooting gun.  I'm sure the SX4 would be too.
Love to hunt the King of Spring!

Went looking for a low recoil turkey gun 2 yrs ago due to neck and back injuries.  Winchester sx3 20 ga was suggested due to gas operated and weight  around 7 lbs. It's very soft shooting and the safety is easy to switch for left hand if you ever go back to lefty. 2 3/4" fed #7 or the new tss is all you need
