Mossberg 510 Mini Turkey Thug. My 8yr old loves hers.Ended up mounting a Burris FFIII on top of it for her.

I bought my son the same gun when he turned seven.It's a nice gun and patterned well.However,3" turkey loads kick like a mule out of that light of a gun.I sold the gun last year and picked up a tristar semi.It weighs about the same but recoil with the heavy loads is noticeably less.Not a big difference in price either.

Bought a mossberg 510 mini 20ga. for my 10yr. old since he's small framed. The 505 youth model stock was still too big for him. Only reason I went with a pump instead of a semi was so he could use it during deer season also. If it's only going to be used for small game & turkey I'd look into one of the youth model semis.
