Buying your first shotgun can be intimidating. Here are some tips to help make that process a little easier.
For a deep dive into what you need to know before purchasing your first shotgun, check out this California Department of Fish and Wildlife Harvest Huddle Hour (R3H3) webinar on the topic. The video, which is a little over an hour long, covers:
- What type of shotgun to buy for the kind of hunting you plan to do (and for your personality)
- Understanding gun fit
- The process of buying a shotgun
- Safety considerations
- Ways to practice with your new gun
While some of the presentation is specific to California, most of it should be helpful to people in other states as well.
