    Looking to get my wife a new shot gun.  She is a bit girly and doesn't like the recoil of a pump.  I'm thinking a semiauto, and the Versa Max caught my eye.  I'm not worried about length of pull, she's 5'7" but it's the weight that has me concerned.  Is there a lighter semiauto that can take a range of shells from target loads to turkey loads? 12 ga perfered.

     I think it really comes down to what your willing to spend.  Do you have a price point in mind?

    My wife loves to shoot my Beretta AL391 with a 8 shot or target load it doesn't kick much at all.  The down side is the cost is around $1200.

    The Benelli Super Black Eagle is very light and recoil is almost non-existent. If price is an issue, check out a used Benelli M-90 or a Stoeger. The M-90 is very light and the kick is like a pellet gun. The M-90 won't cycle 3.5" shells so no one wants them anymore. Everybody wants that 3.5". The new Stoeger semi-autos have a lot of the same technology found in a Benelli.
