If you can't tell, I know darn little about shotgunning. My only experience is my single shot .22/.410 surivial rifle. A buddy of mine said he has a mossberg 500 he'll let me have for $200, so I'm all over it. The question is, are there lighter recoil loads available so my wife and maybe kids could shoot it? I also have a chance to get a .410 pump for cheep, maybe I should get that instead? I can only afford one right now.
