Have a single shot 12 gauge that my grandfather gave me when I first started hunting. That is about all I use. If I dont hit it with the 1st one then I need to be a better shot. Even Rabbit hunting that is all I use.

I like my Ruger 10/22 or my single shot 410 for squirrels, and my Mossberg 12 ga pump for all the rest. If I feel extra sporty I'll use that little 410 for Doves. Ever try using a Bow for Squirrels?

I use a single shot 410 or a .22 automatic for squirrels, depending where I am hunting (subdivisions are moving in on my squirrel woods) and I use a 12 guage Browning automatic for everything else - rabbits, quail, pheasants, dove, and turkey. I haven't done any waterfowl hunting in years. The older I get the less I like the cold and early morning hours.

Iam in the market for a shotgun. i already want to get a 12 guage but i cant decide on a smaller one iam stuck between the 28 guage and the .410 can anybody shed some light on the basics of the smaller two like cost for rounds and power ratio. iam looking for a smaller gun that can take small game but wont have too much trouble takeing on a bit larger like a fox or coyote. any help on the 28 and 410 would be greatly appreciated
Thanx :)
