Alright shotgun peoples, I have a question for you. I have heard from two different camps on the issue of the .410 bore shotguns – the division is that some look at the .410 as an expert’s gun, and some look at it as a beginner’s gun.
So what say you? I’m looking for a shotgun that I can use to learn the fundamentals with, where I won’t be bothered by the recoil of shooting 200 rounds a session. The light weight and lack of any kind of recoil pad can make Frankenshotty unpleasant, and I certainly wouldn’t want to run more than 50-75 rounds through it at a time. Since my training strategy revolves around the principle of “shoot more”, I thinking about a .410 to save the shoulder abuse that upwards of 200 rounds will cause.
So what do think – beginner’s gun, or expert gun? Should I just shoot less and go with the 20 all the time?
