i like the 6 shot as well. 7 1/2 seems too small to me unless they are real close.

today i shot my uncles 12 ga and i like it!!!! kicks about as much if not a hair less than my 20. a few days ago i paternd my 20 at 20 yards and it was sad. my pattern was 6 inches low and left. for now im using a semi-auto .22 with a 15 round tube mag. with hollow points.
id like some size 4 or 6 for the .410, 16 or 12
