But hey, if you're not far from school, maybe I could stop by and hang out for a bit, if you wanted.
Most weekends I dont do anything anyway.

S.S.

Is the mariner coating really worth the extra 90 or 100 bucks? I plan to collect it forever but not on a boat of in my car or anything

A .410 has a few down sides. Price of ammo, small patterns, many repeaters are built on modified 12ga frames so they are heavier than they need to be.

$ of ammo is not huge so I agree not to sweat that part much.

The small patterns are often times compensated for by having the barrel choked full. This makes for a shotgun that is more like shooting a rifle at a moving target. If you learn to hit consistently, you have indeed reached a high level of competence. .410 skeet shooters are the cream of the crop.

The heavy, bulky size of many .410 pumps and autos makes them a bit more difficult to hold for smaller people, but it has the side effect of reducing recoil to almost nothing.

Personally I would look at some of the "ultra light" 12ga loads. Usually 7/8 oz of shot and less recoil than similar 20ga ammo.

i have to agree with Rugermike, a twenty is a good place to start. I have 2 remington 870s,winchester 12,and a couple of singles. My son started shooting trap with one a couple of years ago (at age 12).start with light target loads.

Phrn.

I have a 12ga and 20ga.

But its okay, I decided not to get it.
Picked up 100rds for my 12ga.

Might leave my shotguns alone for a while and focus on my 10/22.

The main seasons I hunt dont start until oct 1 so I'm going to practice shoot with my .22, maybe shoot the occasional pesty crow.

S.S.

At my last CCW class, .410 was recommended for home defense by the instructor. So last week I bought a Mossberg 500 .410 Cruiser 6 shot. Of course I have to wait until next Tuesday to pick it up since I live in the CPR.

I just got a Mossberg 500 in .410 (with pistol grip, shoot one handed no problem not much kick) it shoot great but if i put more than 3 rounds in it when i pump it will push 2 or 3 rounds onto the elevator causing a jam. It is a 6 round (2 1/2 and 3in) tube. has anyone else had this problem? Also there was wood dowel in mag tube only allowing 2 rounds in looked all over the manual nothing about the dowel. I put it back in thinking it was for break-in and that why it spits out more than one shell.

Welcome to the forum.

Not sure why it is grabbing more than one shell, as it should not. I hope I am understanding what you are saying it is doing.

As for the dowel, it is there to restrict the gun to 3 shells. 1 in the chamber and 2 in the well. Many states restrict the number of shells the shotty can hold for hunting.
