    Get a h&r if he wants a single shot. Very high quality for a not too bad price. $100-$200 depending on where you purchase one. I bought a h&r 12 gauge single shot break open shotgun in june and no fails and very fun to shoot. They do make a .410

    At a 139 bucks what's not to like? And what's wrong with a .410 single? I have one and I love it, and with all the buy/sell/trading that I've done that .410 has been a keeper. Heck, I don't even need a reason beyond "I like it", that's good enough for me. I don't take it to Stater Bros. with me, the game is already dead. Heard of road kill? I get the Stater kill.
    Something about shotguns in a single shot never bothered either. Call me a freek if you need to but I actually enjoy the process of changing my shell, more-so than pumping rounds out quickly. I don't have need for speed. And like OZO said it'll be HIS, ownership dadio! I think there's something to it.

    NEF (New England Fireames) now I believe. Which reminds me, I picked up one of those earlier this year so with old faithful Win. 37A I have two .410 singles. I guess you gotta dig stuff out once in a while to see what ya got!

    410s are hard to hit with . When I shot a lot of skeet I used to practice with a .410 . Maybe that's what the boy has in mind , and just hasn't tipped his hand yet . If you can break clays consistantly with a .410 you will kick butt with a 12 Ga. !

    If he's like me, he wants to be kinda unique with what he has. Everyone has a shotgun, but not everyone has a .410 bore. .410 is good with vermin, snakes and small game, from what I gather. You can probably also use it on smallish birds, no bigger then a plump quail.

    We use a single shot .410 to settle ties in our trap matches. Far less shot makes thing very interesting.

    I think New England Firearms is the same thing as H&R right?

    Yes I believe NEF bought out H&R.

If I buy the combo he gets 2 guns what do you guys think?He has a marlin 795 .22 semiauto.Carver he just wants it to plink around.These guns start at 109,139 and 179 in that order.
