For me 410ga is hard to find and not appealing. I would rather have a straight 22LR or 12ga rifle.

Fine depending on what you want it for. Small backup lightweight rabbit/bird survival tool.

Great. I'd get one that was over/under though instead of a barrel change.

Be a decent snake gun. I think that this where .410 shines. Snake gun.

It would be a good emergency snake gun but you can use a stick for that.

I had an M-6 and I have one of the Rossi 45/.410 /22 pistols. ( It was a gift from the wife, I didn't pick it).

I got lucky because I bought the M-6 back when they were under $200. They got popular and someone offered me crazy money for it so I sold it. Two weeks later I ran into a Savage 24c .22/20ga at an out of the way shop. I bought it and still had money left over from the M-6 sale for ammo.

In short, a snake or rat at close range, is about the limit of the .410s usefullness, especially from the non-existant choke in most "survival" guns.

I have another Savage, and old break top singleshot with a 30-30 and a 20ga barrel, that would be far more useful.

Please define "emergency gun".


IMHO, I have no use for it. When I talk about a combo gun I mean a gun with shotgun and rifle together at the same time. This way I can take one gun and be ready for any animal that presents it's self. It is a game getter.

This might be a good trainer if you have kids, but....then again...I don't like 410. If you do I would consider looking at the VERY ugly combo gun savage has out.

I have a single-shot rossi in 7.62x39; not sure if it's the same platform or not, but if it is, it's been an ok gun. Main thing I don't like about mine is the silly safety, which this .410/.22 also has apparently. Not a fabulous gun, but not a bad one at all; just a good, simple, beater/knockaround gun that works.

That said, as mentioned above the .410 has the disadvantage of higher cost and less choices than 12 or 20 gauge, which may or may not be a major consideration for you personally. Even though I don't personally like .410, it does have two advantages over 12 and 20; at least when in single-shot form like this. Pound for pound, you could carry a lot more shots for the .410 than for the others, and also in these single-shots you can shoot .45 long colts from them. Since the barrel's not rifled, it's effectively a .45-caliber musket, but there are a lot of medium- and even large-game animals that have fallen to .45-caliber muskets. My sons and I used to throw a ton of .45LC reloads from a single-shot .410 break-open and it's both less expensive and more fun than shooting .410 shells; at least for me it was.

I have the blued version of this gun. Looks kind of nice in nickel.

I bought this when it was $99 at Dicks a few years ago. My young son was too young to shoot then but isn't now. I liked the idea of him learning on a single shot .22lr rifle. Just like with over/under SGs you have to break this one to load the next cartridge/shell. I figure when he's older I can let him try out the .410 barrel but for now the .22lr is just fine.

It's a decent, cheap, single shot youth gun. Not sure it serves any purpose other than that. Once my son outgrows it I imagine it will sit in the back of my safe until he has his own kids.

I was never impressed with 22LR shot shell.

The 45LC and 45ACP, was better.

I have the blued version.

It would make a nice "survival" gun, and it's very compact.

It is a great kids gun. Surprisely good trigger and accurate. I would probably pick the 20 as a survival gun. Or the triple combo that includes the centerfire.

Not really, just an extra pound or so for the barrel.

I bought one for my son last year. I have it tucked away with a small box of .410. It will be his training gun. That is, I will use it to teach him gun safety and how to shoot. My wife and I talked about it. He will not be forced to like guns or be a recreational/competition shooter. However, with the amount of guns we have, gun safety and knowing how to handle a gun is not a choice.

Other than for training purposes, I suppose it'd make a decent squirrel gun. However I have a couple of Papoose rifles tucked away as well that'd do better. And if Ruger had had their tails in gear and came out with the breakdown 10/22 a year earlier they would be tucked away instead. I still may pick one up.

As others have said, the .410 is an odd ball caliber and personally I think it is quite useless compared to a 12ga. But it is a perfect training caliber in my opinion. Introduces the shove/kick of a shotgun without being unpleasant or harmful.
