I found a H&R singleshot 410 and the specs say that it has an 18” bbl. My concern is about felt recoil and my 10y/o. I saw one of those synthetic Rossi’s that have a 22” bbl and I didn’t like it because there was no weight to it. Does the hardwood stock on the H&R help compensate for the short bbl? Or should I look for one with a longer bbl?

I had the H&R single shot 410, which I got from a forum member. I sold it a while back because I couldn't get anything to pattern in it. The weight of the gun pretty much nullified any recoil. I have another 410 that was mine as a kid and it's half the weight of the H&R, and it will rattle your teeth. My son would rather shoot my 870 than that thing. I still feel that you will be better off with a 20ga, but that's just my opinion
