I've been thinking of buying a Pardner .410 for myself and my little brother to pop chipmunks and other highly dangerous animals around the garden. My little brother is 10 and already has a Marlin .22 semi-auto which he handles pretty well. Ranges are out to 15 yards at most. I'm planning to use the 3" shells with probably #7 1/2 shot. So what are your opinions on H&R Pardner shotguns and the .410 for the intended use?

Great little guns if the price is right. Though a mossberg pump .410 is the best little .410 i have ever shot, its just too much fun to shoot.

How much for the .410 Pardner?

My local Academy has a wood stock Moss 20ga for only 159.00.
Pardner protectors are 189.00, and field models are 199.00

Well, I picked up the H&R .410 today for $149. It looks nice, picked up 4 boxes of 7 1/2 shot too. It'll be put to work this weekend defending the house from the chipmunk insurgency.

IMO you should look for a used one. I picked up a used 20 gauge Parnder youth model a couple years ago for $59.
And I'd consider 20 gauge as well. I like my .410 H&R Topper (same gun really) because my dad gave it to me, but the 20 gauge would have allowed more "growth" IMO.

Squirrells, chipmunks, and other yard vermin can be a real problem to defend against, take no chances.

I have an H&R Tamer in 20ga that I replaced the goofy snake charmer style buttstock on with a regular buttstock and love it. it weighs 5.5 pounds and has a little recoil when you shoot it but not too bad.

I plan on sending the frame back and having a 410 barrel fitted. I have sorta went nuts over 410s in the last few weeks. I ordered the stuff to reload it on the cheap from BPI and a box of 25 cost a little over $5 to load. I have 500 more primed hulls on their way to and they should be here today or tommorow.

I don't understand why the ammo is so expensive when the guns are so popular. I got paid for a job 10 years ago with a Remington Express 410. I gave $125 credit. I decided I didn't want it because of the cost of the ammo and listed it in the local paper for $250. I have never in my life had so many phone calls for a gun. I beleive I could have sold a truck bed full of those guns in one weekend.

Oh yeah I forgot to add this. I showed my wife that picture of the GI Joes with the giant squirrel. I told her those were Russian soldiers that had killed a giant mutant squirrel from the Chernoble(SP) nuclear accident. If the guy who took the picture would have laid the squirrel in the grass instead of next to the curb it would have worked. It almost worked anyway.
