As for the folks who say an autoloader makes a kid trigger happy,all i can say is nonsense. Simply give them one shell. Ive taught many many young folks to hunt. What I do,is they carry their gun unloaded,until they are able to keep up. When they are able to keep up bird hunting behind dogs, they get one shell. They still carry guns unloaded and open until dogs point,then they step up,load, and shoot. If they miss,gun is safe and i am behind them watching for the reason and am able to coach them better. Once i am really assured they are safe,know the rules,etc then and only then do we hunt together. One very important thing you want to watch for is simply buying a gun too heavy, and especialy too muzzle heavy, for a young person. If they cant lift it and point/swing it. They will sort of put the gun to their shoulder,and arch their back to lift the muzzle.( watch yours,youll see them do it)besides being a nearly impossible angle to hit from since they cant swing,or KEEP swinging,very often they will pull the trigger at the same time,and are liable to shoot the dogs..THATS the reason most folks call single shot guns youth guns. Any hammer type gun REGARDLESS of brand is inherently less safe than a hammerless regardless of who tells you otherwise..simply because its all to easy for a person to hold the trigger down while they are cocking/decocking it,especialy a young person with weak,small hands. The safety factor was a big selling point for hammerless guns years ago. next time you go bird hunting,try this. try carrying your shotgun open .when a bird flushes simply close the breech as you mount you find you dont miss anymore birds unless your in extremly thick cover.and you may be surprised to find you kill more birds per number of gun can fire with a open breech,thats the only true safety you have. teach you young ones never to load their guns untill they are ready to fire,and youll never have to worry about them in the feild,simply because a unloaded gun is safe.
