Mossberg 930 barrel combo for kid ? Recoil ?

Could a kid handle ( 13 and a half 63.5 " aka 5 ft. 3.5 in. 165 lbs ) handle the Mossberg 930 ( semi auto shotgun, gonna weigh 10 lbs with scope, sling mounted can carry this much ) shooting 2 3/4 300 grain Hornady SST Lite slug ? How about Hevi Shot Coyote, Remington Managed Recoil Buckshot, Hornady Heavy Magnum Coyote 00 Buck 3 ", or other shot shells for hunting coyotes ? LOP shouldn't be bad at all for him.

He should have very little

He should have very little problem with it. He just needs to get out and shoot it some so that he knows what is going to happen when he pulls the trigger.

I got my first shotgun when I was 14. A Whinchester model 12 12 ga. I was 6' tall and 120lbs dripping wet. I still remember the black and blue shoulder I would have after a day of shooting ducks and geese. Those bruses were a badge of honor when I went to school the next few days.
