have said this before, go back 70yrs, and you would find most country kids shooting a .410. and they bought home meat.

That is an El Cheapo NcStar Reflex Optics that has red, green and blue dots to select from. I've avoided NcStar like the plague but when I talked to a couple of guys at the San Antonio gun show, they said they tried these dots out and have really worked well in easy recoiling firearms. It also came with a cantilever mount, so I just popped in on the little shotgun and off to the shooting fields. I've probably put 150 rounds through the shotgun and the dot has not lost zero. Model # is DRGB135

.410's will kill turkeys, just like a .243 or 30-30 will kill dear. (Yet most people want to use the latest big magnum to kill deer also.) lol.

If you have an accurate 22 LR, 22's are great head shot punchers for Turkeys.

Not even that long. My first firearm was/is a .410 single shot that was on sale at K-Mart for $20 back in 1972. This 12 year old brought home many squirrel and rabbit for the dinner table. I can never forget the sense of pride I had the first time I got to help put dinner on the table.

This thread prompted me to go get it down off the gun rack and look it over. Needs a bit of lube but otherwise good to go.

Yelp my first was a pump 410, that’s after the GW took our 22. I also had to learn to actually call ducks and geese that year…

An unethical shot is one you take, that you know you shouldn't.
