Would one of those Saiga shotguns be too heavy? They are semi-auto and available in .410, 20 guage, and 12 guage. Untitled Document Classicarms has the .410 model for $300 right now. They also have a Norinco (Chinese-made) coach gun in 12 guage for cheap ($250), but i am not sure about the quality (or i would already have one). Both of these are relatively short-barreled and probably not suitable for any longer shots, but dove hunting comes to mind. The Saiga's are like semi-auto AK's, mostly and could probably be slung with a tacticool sling for easier one-handling.

If you had an AR & an extra $400ish, there is an upper in .410, but i know next-to-nothing about it.

I do still have my old H&R .410 break-action; i have no plans to part with it while breathing.

I know for a fact that switchblades are legal to own if you only have one arm,which you think would be the same if you have only the use of one arm.I was just wondering since they are illegal for 99% of the general public.

By the way,if it were me I might look into one of these Commanche .45/.410 single shot pistols,or a Taurus Judge or S&W Governor,although I think the Commanche with the 10"barrel will do far better for breaking random objects than the Taurus and S&W's 2" barrel.

The Taurus Judge is also avaiable in a 6 inch version. Changeing the straight and riflrd tubes one handed could be mastered with enough practice.

I would stay away from a pump due to the fact that the forces exerted on the bolt face are enough to push the action open when firing it one handed. The slamming back of the action can damage the internal components of the action, rendering it useless, or at minimum, jamming the weapon. I found this out while sighting in an 870 with slugs on a set of shooting sticks a few years back. I would look into an H&R single shot or a coach gun myself. Kudos on overcoming adversity. I hope this helps.

Recalling Terminator 2, Arnold was riding a motorcycle, holding the handlebar in one hand and shooting (and cocking) a lever-action shotgun in the other with a flip-action. Supposedly the shotgun used was a Winchester Model 1887 with an expanded ring-shaped cocking handle. That flip-cock move might be discouraged at your local range, but it might suffice if you are shooting on your own land where you wont accidentally spray anyone while you practice it.

OP, if you go with this suggestion by any chance, I want the video.

I highly recommend the knoxx stock with recoil suppression. I'm not a huge guy, only weighing a mere 145lbs and with that stock I have no problems on handing the gun, hell last time I shot it I one handed 3" Remington Nitro Turkey, that recoil suppression system is amazing!!!

just a sie note, I wouldn't even try to shoot any 12 gauge one handed with a 3" turkey load, unless it had that stock/grip...
