You might want to also check around for a Browning B80 in 20 gauge. They have 21 inch barrels and a straight stock. This a semi-automatic that seems to fit youths and some women fairly well. You should be able to find one in your price range. I bought one for my son several years back and it was a p...

Re: Is Texas the poorest state for public land?

Re: Puppy to skinny

Why are you taking stool samples to a vet? Has a vet seen your dog? If so did the vet say your dog was too thin?

I can't tell from the photos, but most vets would say they like to be able to see a few ribs when they are assessing a dog's condition.
