Used to be, when our Wal-Marts in this area sold guns, you could go in and buy any of the H&R single shotguns for $89.99. I never did buy one back then but I have a H&R Ultra Slug now and love it.

As to 16s, I don't currently own one but I want to get one soon. My FIL used to have a Stevens SxS 16 and I loved that gun. He traded it for another gun. Used to love that gun for rabbit.

I own 17 H & R single shots and in my way of looking at things they are the best bang for your buck on the market today. I do like the 16 gauges but like the 20s, 28s and 410s better. It is sometimes hard to find 16 gauge shells around here so I don't use mine that much. Take it from an old man buy the H & R. You won't be sorry.

H&R are now under Marlin. Look at their rifles and combos too. You can get a set with switchable barrels.

I have my great grandfather's old H&R from before the turn of the last century. It is no longer what I would consider safely shootable, but it was definitely a well used tool. It has a firing pin that he made by hand. It has some barrel wobble, that is my biggest concern for safety. But it shows that these simple guns are of a sound design that can get the job done at an affoardable price.
