I am in need of a Rabbit gun,and really wanted to get something inexpensive. I also need a short barreled gun. I don`t want a 12 or 20..my favorite gauge is the 28,,so a Rem Express 870 with the 25" bbl is a possibilty..but the Mossberg .410 with the 24" bbl is also looking like a lot of fun,,and considerably less cash. So I would like to hear from people who use a .410 for rabbits/Squirrels. The shots I will be getting on Rabbits are sometimes as close as kicking a blowdown and flushing one out..heavy briar patches etc..so I don`t expect long shots. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
