Re: Son wants shotgun for christmas.
I bought my Grandson one of the Rossi matched pairs (.410/.22) a few years ago for Christmas. If it is the same one your son is looking at, the barrel is just too short for anything like squirrels or rabbits unless they are pretty close. BUT, on the other hand, if it is what he wants, then get it for him or try to lead him to something with a longer barrel.
