    i like a 20ga better than a 410 because its cheaper to shoot. it doesnt destroy the meat either.

      I think it's a great caliber to get younger hunters started.

        My first shotgunning experience was with a .410, and I think it's a fine choice to keep squirrels and rabbits on the campfire or to stay in practice on hand-thrown clays. I wouldn't rely on it as my ONLY shotgun, but I'd purchase another for the pure fun of it.

            my cousins hunt small game with two over under .410s i peronally like the firepower of a 20 or 12 gaure but the .410 is fin to shoot and very versatile. worth keeping.

                I don't like it that game loads are higher for it than my 12! My daughter has one that I'm waiting for her to grow into. I used them for rabbits and squirrels when I was a kid. Oh yeah Water Moccasins to its a great snake gun!

                        Those who've never owned one, will undoubtedly not recommend it, but the fact is, if u learn to shoot a .410 well, you well be a holy terror on trap,rabbits,quail,squirrels, u name it, when you grow into .20's and .12's. Wouldn't recommend it for deer, unless it's your only option, and you've got a spot offering a CLOSE shot. It is too bad the ammo's high

                            ammo for a 410 is more expensive than 12 gauge shells

                                Its a great way to train at the range, especially for competition trap shooting. If you can hit consistently with a .410, you'll be deadly when it comes time to pull out the 12 gauge.
