Be it shotgun, handgun or rifle (?) configuration, is the 410 really the best weapon to have stuffed in your blow-out (bug out, go) bag?
I was at a gun show last year and found a table selling 410/2 1/2" uppers for the AR platform. As odd as that sounds the purveyor claimed they worked well and he had several different loads for the 410 in multi-projectile, single and shot. I thought it very interesting but the the uppers had 16" barrels and were smooth bore(??).
A lot of folks seem to like the idea of the 410 in a handgun, a couple of models are quite popular but I think they are more of a novelty like the derringer in 45 Colt/410 21/2".
Am I missing something? Can we actually kill anything at any distance at all with a 410 shot from a handgun? Oh I'd say the slugs and the multi's could do damage but how far are they realistically put anything down?
What do you folks think about this little gun?
