I’m going to get a over under for rabbit, squirrel, and dove hunting, but I don’t know if I should get a .410 or a 20 gauge. Any suggestions?

I'd get the 20 gauge for sure. It will be far more effective than a .410 at anything past close range.

20 gauge. It's got way more effective range.

Give some serious consideration to a 28ga

20ga. It’s a better choice than a .410 for almost anything.

Split the difference and get a 28!

IMHO the 20ga is vastly more versatile and ammo is of course far easier to find and cheaper.
