    .410 bolt actions use to be pretty common. I use to have one that had a tubular magazine, but it wouldn't feed and had to be used as a single shot. Think it was made by J.C. Higgins.

    Yep GB in Clack has one for $99. I looked it over today, not a bad little shotgun for the price.

    I've got a 16 ga. J.C. Higgins (Sears) that I bought at GB in Tigard for $99. The old gun looks almost new. Don't see myself ever getting rid of it. Fun gun to take plinking.

    Stevens/Savage made them as well as Mossberg, and Wards, Sears and Western Auto sold both with store brands inscribed. They appear regularly at shops and shows, and right around $100 is a going rate (although were I in the market, I'd dicker a bit, since they are not exactly a "sought-after" item). This is not any slight on their practicality: probably no better "kitchen door" gun for pests and farm varmints, bulletproof durability and most have rifle-quality trigger pulls on 'em: hard to find in a cheap used shotgun.

    The only problem is the cost of the ammo. At $8 to $10 per box of 25, even for trap loads, the .410 can get expensive to shoot.
