Question by deer hunter. Uploaded on June 24, 2009
Mossberg makes a good one. I'd try the pawn shops,or a major sporting goods store.
Good luck with this.
Good boy, getting a gun for his sister! I would recommend a Mossberg if you want a pump-gun, but if you want a single barrel break-open get a Rossi, H&R, or New England Firearms.
cheap? check walmart, they usually have some cheap little guns.
Look at Dicks's or Gander Mountain, you can possibly by a used one at gander Mountain or Cabela's if you have one near you. They quit selling guns at Walmart here in Ohio.
I have a single shot Magtech I bought about 7 years ago, it has worked well in the Grouse woods, think I paid 89.00 for it.
yeah same with the walmarts in CT but i saw one for under $100 at dicks a single shot i forgot the make
dick's sporting goods has a single shot for around 80 bucks.
I think it's a rossi
My brother said that he bought his Mossberg 410 used for $169.00. He's used that little shotgun for everything. If you can find one used I wouldn't hesitate to buy.
they still sell guns in salem,Ohio!
Deer hunter are you from salem, I grew up in the youngstown area.
All the previous answers are fine, but remember, a .410 can be harder to hit with than a larger bore. My first shotgun (a heck of a long time ago) was a .410 and I got real frustrated because I couldn't seem to hit anything, but when I got hold of a 20ga. my sucess rate skyrocketed, as did my confidence. My grandson's first shotgun will be a 20 ga. as soon as he's old enough.
buckeye I am from leetonia ohio.
country road,I let my sister shoot my 20ga and it kicked her like a mule so she wants somthing a little smaller.
Have the user try out several and see what fits. The Rossi Matched Pair combo is inexpensive and a good platform. Swap the bbl for some .22 practice and it's avaliable for about $180.
The .410 is pricy to shoot. If recoil is a concern, light 20 ga loads with a heavier gun and good stock (well fit and recoil pad)may be more enjoyable.
but if its a kid she wont want a heavy gun they get tired of the weight and start pointing it in dangerous directions 20 guages probably arnt best and the .410 is pricy i bought a box of 12 for more than the price of my dad who bought the same brand and load but in 12 guage and his was 24 rounds
I'd go with the new england firearms handi-rifle. it's a break open single shot, which will help her learn how to shoot
