Need some advice on a new gun
« on: February 14, 2020, 07:31:33 AM »
I had a neck surgery in 2018 that left my arms weak. I'm right handed and my right arm is worse and shoulder is losing all muscle. I want to go light, 20 gauge, and probably semi auto. I like the Weaterby 459 but right now cant find one. What do you guys recommend and why. Remember, think light and compact. Any other points, I'm open for opinions and comments. Thanks for your help all....

Light weight Autos to consider.
Benelli M2
Franchi Affinity
Mossberg SA-20
Weatherby SA-20

All of those should be around the same weight or lighter than the 459.

Feel your pain brother.........I would suggest the Mossberg, Weatherby and one of the Browning gas guns. I would shy away from a Benelli or Franchi as much as I like them, they are very light in 20GA but being inertia are not soft shooting as a gas gun. Good luck in your search!

Do not know your budget but I would look at the Beretta A400s in 20 ga.  Tristar makes a 410 that can be made into a legitimate 40 yard turkey gun as well.

^this^ A 410 might be a good choice for someone in your predicament. With the new tss ammo that is available can make the 410 into a viable turkey gun out to about 40 yards with the right chokes and loads. It would be lighter and with less recoil than a lightweight 20. Something to ponder for sure.
