I was a goose guide for 10 years. May soon received a 3" 20 ga 870 for his 8th birthday. He took many ducks with it. He received a 12 ga 3" for his 13th birthday. That was when he took his first goose.

20 ga is not a goose gun with steel shot. Using premium (expensive) bismuth or tungsten shot is possible.

16 yard Trap is double with 20 ga. Be gone that and you are seriously handicapping yourself.

From the OP, 12 ga Semi-auto is THE choice.

Like the Brownings. If his budget is low and wanting to play find an old Savage clone of the A5. They are easily much less expensive and they work very well. It may meet all his needs.
