Must be able to take slugs as well as shot loads.

I'm partial to the Baikal's, rugged and cheap here but far from being a expert

so experts , please let me know!

Thanks

Get the cheapest one you find.
There is no special model to steer away from.
These are very simple firearms, with mostly no
mfg problems to concern yourself with.
Hunting at a distance is limited with a .410.......
but self defense using Winchester PDX1 Defender
is very adequate.

I'd get a semi auto if you can find one

I'm not an expert.

What are you going to use it for?

Single barrel shotguns include single shot, pump action and semi-auto action. The other option is a double barrel.

I'm thinking you might be referring to a single shot.

Unless for a kid I'd suggest a .20 guage. While the .410 is a good round, it is exensive to practice with and options for it's use are somewhat limited. When using low-brass ammo, recoil is very low.

HR and Rossi both make decent single shots in relitively the same price range.

The only reason I have a .410 is my father left me his "snake charmer"...but I do carry that and use it for both snakes and moles...don't use slugs, though.

I have an H&R single shot .410 and an old piece of crap EXCEL .410 and a snake charmer. They all work just fine for what they are.
