I had the same experience and avoid the 12 gauge due to my memories of throbbing pain, except I was 38, not 12 at the time. Still, it makes me sad that I'm such a wimp.

My friend has a cool Saiga assault shotgun, and while it is fun to pose with for photo ops, I will most likely never fire it due to the pain it inflicts upon me.

Start young kids with a 28 gauge or a 410. The recoil is mild and they can learn to shoot at moving targets. A .30 calibre carbine is also excellent for children when the have moved past a 22 and want to shoot something that makes more noise with little recoil.
