    I killed my first squirrel with this gun when I was 9 years old. Its a 22/.410. It was my uncles gun and it is the gun that started my love for small game hunting. I recently acquired this gun and decided to hunt with it Saturday morning. I hadn't shot a critter with it in almost 30 years. It felt good to watch this rabbit flip after the shot. Felt like a kid again for a minute or two!

    Nice gun. Good memories. My favorite small game gun is still my 20 o/u I’ve used since I was about 10.

    Man, that's awesome. If we get to hunt next weekend, I think I'll carry my old .410.... Thanks for sharing, and the idea!

    Killed a bunch of rabbits with a 410 they deserve more respect than they get

    One rabbit and one old fashioned gun. This just reminds us of how something so simple can be so rewarding. Nice!

    I really wish I would of kept my old single shot 410 but I sold it to buy a Mossberg 500 in 12 ga when I was 18!
