What is a good grouse gun?
New to the site. I have found there is a good grouse population on some property I own in NY state. I tried hunting them with my Mossberg 500 but find it's hard to carry and swing that beast all day (before I go any further I've had this gun for almost 35 years and dearly love it). Looking for a good inexpensive gun to use for grouse and rabbits two or three times a season. Any suggestions?

410 is awesome and doesn't muck up the bird, also nice and light to carry around with no kick

If you can find an old 28 guage this would make for a great grouse gun. Finding ammo may be a challenge though. The last time I searched for ammo I could find only #9 and #6 shot.
Hard to go wrong with a 20 guage as well. Easy to find ammo. I started hunting with an Ithica 20.

something like an old Savage 20-16ga in a double barrel and with 25-26" barrels should do the trick.

How about a Mossberg 500 in 20 Ga?
A short barrel over/under in 20 GA.
