Recently I have seen a very nice Winch 101 410ga, What do you think about? It's useful for hunting, or it's only a fine toy ? :confused:

The .410 is good for Woodcock and Quail over here these are smaller gamebirds that flush close. It should work as well for birds of similar size over there. The problem with the .410 is it runs out of pattern density at about 25 yards (23meters). I have two .410's that I use for Skeet, and small guage Sporting Clays events. The Winchester 101's are very well built and will last a lifetime.

I like using a .410 for squirrels up close, especially in the back yard, much less noise to bother the neighbors.
