Learn to shoot with a .410 and you'll be a better shot because of it. Tight patterns and no room for error will make become you a better shot. You'll need deep pockets though!! Its up to you, it can be done though. Atb Mark :thumbs:

tbh your better off finding an equally nice looking 12 bore and you wont have to pay as much and you'll do better with it...and if you want to shoot with tight patterns just stick full and 3/4 choke in

my little lad is learning to shoot with his single barrel .410. he's on easy clays at the minute but first outing today on a slow incomer and he smashed them for fun even with a mighty 12.5 g cart. so yes you can shoot clays with a .410

I do like the 410 myself, although for clay shooting I couldnt say, as I dont shoot clays...

 

They are a good gun & I have shot a good variety of stuff with my own - There not just for rats as people like to tell you :victory:

I have a hushpower 410 and I use it on rabbits pigeons crows rats. I am introducing my girlfriend to shooting and she is using this on clays and she is hitting them no problem! If she carrys on improving I am going to start getting worried. Only downside is the price of cartridges.

Really underestimated caliber,I grew up with them,never been without one used all three cartridge sizes,superb first gun, I learnt to shoot with one, I always take one ferreting.Before the lead ban I have used them on the side of a small flight pond,during the miners strike the 410 kept food on our table,nothing but fond memories of the little 410
