    Quote:Are you kidding? I have killed deer with a .410 Actually about 8 deer. Plus fox, cyotes, coons and a few other things. In Indiana it is totally legal for deer. I love .410's

    I guess you could but I use a .22 always thought .410 would be too much.

    You can reach out and touch something with a .410. As kids, we used to use a single shot to hunt jack rabbits. Let them get out about 30 yards and bleweeee.

    I still have my .410 break top H&R I got for Christmas when I was 10. Fifty years later I still use it on Quail and Bunnies. It shoots nice 3" groups at 35 yds and that is with just a bead front sight. 2 and 3/4 slugs. I have killed deer with it, not on the spot, some trailing, I even have that with a 12 Gauge. I plan on giving this gun to my grandson. Later he will eventually get them all. Gotta learn to get close first, later he can reach out with more gun.

    .410 is a great grouse gun.
