I'm super excited! This season is going to be my sons (ages 12 and 9) first full hunting season. I introduced them at the end of last season to a little bit of rabbit and squirrel hunting. I had them using 20 guage single shots. This year I'm wanting to upgrade them to either pumps or automatics. I'm leaning more toward the pumps but I had a firearms instructor tell me that an automatic would be a better choice and that it would help them develop better shooting habits. For the 9yr old I also was thinking about gettin him a youth model .410 just so it would be lighter for him to carry. I'd like to here some opinions on rather i should go with the pump or auto.
