Keep in mind that the amount of kick is related to the shell you are shooting and its energy. The crack barrels will kick more than the slightly heavier pumps. The best option in my opinion is to get a semi auto, which will use the some of the energy to cycle the shell and deliver less of a kick. Also, shoot 2 3/4 shells, not 3 inch. Also, look for low brass steel at Academy or online. That way you can get her used to the idea and step up gradually. I think the best way to ensure that she hates duck hunting is to get a crack barrel and shoot high power duck loads through it. My opinion. Cheers for getting her involved.
