JD - Keep your eyes peeled at gun shows and on gunbroker. I was fortunate enough to buy both of mine before the prepper craze hit and bought both of them 2nd hand at LGS for reasonable prices. The prices these days can be fairly steep but every once in a while even a blind squirrel gets a nut!

A 20 ga would be much more useful. The new savages are sold as youth models. The 410 is for expert shooters, not kids.
interesting take on suitability of the 410. i half agree, i think 410 is good for young uns, start a 6 year old on one, almost no recoil, they get good with that and they will be expert shooters, be able to hit with anything.

I had a 20 ga single shot at 7. I manged to kill a deer my first season. Even with the lightweight single shot recoil was manageable. The only time the 20 ga beat me down was at a benefit shoot. The prize was a half a cow. I must have shot a 100 cards for elderly ladies and people who sent money for anyone to shoot in their place. I woke up the next AM with s black and blue shoulder.

Would it not actually be Dreilling? Pronounced Dry-ling?

Germans call it a drilling. Not aware it ever being spelled Drei though.
Yet, they pronounce a four barrel Vierling (Vier being four of course.)
