Today I did the usual wobble trap thing with my 20ga Nova. There was a kid/dad combo shooting a pump Remington and little single shot 410.

The kid was having trouble shooting his 410 and the 12ga o/u loaned to him, so I offered my Benelli while using his 410.

Holy cow, that little gun was FUN! Got a 19 with the Nova, and a 23 with the 410. That sucker was MUCH easier to shoot accurately...cock the hammer back, bead down and fragment those suckers.

Dad only paid $20 for it, I may have to get one. Everyone was pretty shocked I shot so well with it... :eek: :cool:

EDIT: Here's a picture of it. New England Pardner Youth apparently...sure did fit/shoot nicely.http://img143.echo.cx/img143/7458/550055mf.jpg

sounds fun how was the recoil of the 410?

The kid had a cheap recoil pad on there and I hardly knew it fired. Probably could have shot it one handed.

While I don't advocate the .410 single shot as a kid's first gun - instead a 28 ga is much much better [ see the scores on a tote board sometime] - I do advocate for Us bigger kids the .410 single shot for the fun factor. :p

My best so far with a .410 single shot is 15 doves with 12 shells. Hey if the grey missles wanna fly wing to wing - okay by me. :)

I have to much fun with slugs out of these .410 single shots....

Alright, I just *had* to pick one of these up. $60 at a pawn shop and I traded in my lightly used .22 rifle.

What amazes me is how LIGHT the trigger is. I swear it's only about 2 pounds. Took my friend's kid out shooting at the trap range with it and he got 7 on his third game. :D

There is a funny old man at my skeet field has an old winchester model 42 pump with custom made chokes. it is like shooting a daisy air rifle but with more oomph. It was fun because when you hit it there was no doubt. great buy

Nice shootin'. Sounds like fun. Maybe I'll have to get one, too. :)
