    OK...here's the deal...


    My son has a beautiful 12 ga. break barrel style you sized firearm. It fits him and he does very well with it...busts clays, etc, nice fit...

    He passed hunter safety and we're heading out next weekend to hunt jackrabbit down south, but I just can't get over the fact that the gun, due to it's age, has no safety.

    I'm not looking to lowball anybody, but is there anyone out there with a youth 12 ga. pump, semi or break (with a safety) that is just taking up space in their safe?

    I hate that cost is a factor, but it is. We're a single dad and a kid on a budget....and as always, much obliged for your time and consideration.

    I was taught "old school", drop a shell in the receiver, but do not close the breach and carry it open. It is easy enough to close the breach as the gun is brought up to the firing position when a target is found.
