    This is my lil mans Easter present I just got it put back together after I cut down the stock refinished it. It is a fie 410 nothing fancy but I think it's perfect for him he is 6 and already loves shooting his bb gun and bow and loves tagging along with dad anytime I'm in the woods...I really excited for him to see it Easter morning

    That is really nice. He's going to love it.


    Hey, weren't you looking for a butt plate just a couple days ago? That was quick.

    NICE! Be sure to get some short shells to get him started.

    Nice job on the stock, 410 is a great first gun, it was mine and is still one of my favorite guns to carry.

    That's great. Like most of us it will be a moment he remembers for the rest of his life.

    Very nice job on the stock. Looks like you got the short man set up and ready to go. You did a great job on the 1st choice. Fancy can come later, though that does look better than my first one :eek: And I had to walk uphill in the show to get it!!:eek:
    Then walk uphill to get back because that's how it was dang-flabbit:D

    A .410 was my first gun I shot besides a red rider. Great memories, never will forget it. Kinda a gruesome memory but makes me laugh looking back at it.

    My first shotgun was an F.I.E SB-1 in .410. I still have it, and it still gets regular use during small game seasons. i used to take out rabbits at 25 yards with it back in my teens, and I have used it more than once with slugs to take out some of the local coyotes at close range. Lots of good memories of hunts with my father are tied to that shotgun. Enjoy the memories you will make with your son, he will always treasure them, as will you.

    Nice job. The best time I have with my son always has a rifle or shotgun or fishing pole involved.

    Good choice! I'm sure he will quickly fall in live the way most folks on here did.
