    Any recommendations for a 12gauge shotgun for a woman? It will be used mostly for clays and occasionally for pheasant hunts. I would like to spend no more than $2K.

    If you are going to shoot just clays and pheasant then you may want to consider a 20 ga. With the right choke you can move into turkey hunting as well without the strong recoil. Good overall shotgun for someone young or with a light body frame.

    If you still want to remain with a 12 ga. you may want to consider the Benelli M2 Field w/ComforTech Semi-Auto Shotgun or a Franchi Model 612 620 which allows users to adjust the gas system.

    The semi-auto's will lessen the recoil to a noticeable degree vs the pump action shotguns

        A lightweight Beretta semi-automatic theoritically reduces felt recoil. Either a Browning or Beretta light weight version of their O/U would be handy in that they are simple to use and not overly long due to not having that lengthy receiver of a pump or semi-auto. Get the barrels ported if they are not already done so and be sure it has a decent recoil pad like Limb-Saver or a high grade Pachmyer. You also gain instantaneous choice of chokes with the O/U and a little practice.
