I too learned to hunt with a old western auto bolt action 410 that was my grandfathers. I still love to hunt with it. It is light and easy to carry with mild recoil. It just grinds my gizzard for what you have to pay for a box of 410 shells now days which I dont fully understand... I know ... supply and demand and all that hooeeyyy. Maybe if there was a cheaper supply there would be a higher demand.
