I see this thread popped up again and have an additional comment to my post on the first page.

Long ago, 1969 or so I had a cousin back from the USMC that would shoot trap every afternoon after work. He didn't want to shoot competitively but gradually moved from 12ga to 20 and finally to .410. First time I watched him was amazing.

I ve taken many a Rabbit and pheasant quail with 410 i have owned. Lot of great Memories as well.
This is my rifle. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My rifle is my best friend, it is my life. I must master itas i master my life.Without me my rifle is useless, without my rifle i am useless. I must fire my rifle true. I must shoot straighter than my enemy who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I Will. Before God i swear this creed. My rifle and myself are defenders of my country. We are masters of our enemy. We are saviours of my life. So be it until there is no enemy, but peace. Amen.

I have 3. A semi auto. A pump and an under & over. I reload 2 1/2" & 3" 410's. I really enjoy them on the skeet field. The dove field and rabbit hunting. I'm 65 and have shot a 12 ga most of my life. Now I enjoy 20's & 410's more just for light weight and challenge.
