    Hi Ladies, My kids and I love to read together... so aside from the physical "do it like this" kind of teaching, I wondered if there was any other reading material you guys might suggest (other than Little House or Hatchet, have those!) that we could read together that have that kind of living...

    I have a Mossberg 500 12g. My question is, out of all the shotgun "shots" which has the least kick when firing? Does the 2 3/4 have less kick than a 3"? What is the difference between lets say 00 buck shot, and #4 shot? Thanks for any info on this subject or any links that explain differences.
