Just a 410 at this time, but I've probably owned 20 or so, over the years. Don't much care for the 10 or 12 ga's in those light single shots. They were also Mfg'd under H&R Topper and now I think still under the marlin Logo.
Also, several years ago, had a muzzleloader in H&R. A couple of Handi Rifles too.
I have a 12 gauge with modified choke that I bought as a cheap way to try trap. I really like it but unfortunately I moved before I got any good at trap and my new club doesn't have it. Even thought it's light with a slip on recoil pad shooting three rounds of trap in a row was comfortable.
I have a 16 ga. with a full choke and it is great for squirrel but the fixed full choke really makes wing shooting difficult. I think a 20 ga. barrel with the rib and removable choke would make a sweet gun.
I have a 20g youth pardner. Love the little thing. For skeet I often leave the Remington 1100 in the case and roll with the NE. I'm more consistant with it and I can bust multiple clays with great consistancy.
I got a 12 ga Pardner full choke NIB just the other day. Fitted a Pachmayer recoil pad and it still kicks some kinda wicked, as is the nature of the beast. Despite the mean recoil, I like it as it is light to carry, and easy to handle.
i am going to be 50 this year. my dad bought me a brand new H&R 20ga. when i was 12. i still ahve it and love it. my son grew up shooting it and so did my daughter. i also have a H&R 12ga i bought used back in 1984. i killed my 1st fox squirell with the 20ga, my 1st turkey, 1st rabbit and many others. they are very trustworth and you cant wear them out.
Aaah yes...the "regular" NEF's. What a great simplistic gun. I have several... a .12, a .410, and a .20 youth. I picked up all three of them out of an estate. The bores and internals were great but they had quite a bit of suface rust. As a result of the surface rust, I paid $10 a piece. I refinished them and they turned out quite nice. The .20 youth is my favorite because it is lightweight and shoulders perfectly with the short stock when wearing extra clothing during the colder months. All of the guns shoot anything I put in them. Can't go wrong!
i have a 20ga/full pardner model. it was my first gun, got it from k-mart in 1986 when i was 11. it has the case hardened/colored reciever. i still carry it sometimes small game hunting. i just got a 28ga. barrel for my handi rifle. its lighter than the pardner!
I love mine, I have a wood stocked 10ga I bought in high school to shoot ducks and geese with. IT kills on one end and cripples on the other. ;D I thought highly enough of the 10 to buy a 20 ga that I use to hunt rabbits and squirrels with. Really a nice light gun.
They may not be all you want, but they are all you need.
My 1st shotgun was a single shot H&R 12ga....I hunted everything from pheasant to squirrel and rabbit with it. Anyway, I ordered Pardner youth .410ga for my 8yr old boy and it will be here this week. $117.95 ......still a great price for an American made shotgun.
When I was much younger I had several of them in 12Ga. but sold all. I did purchase a 10Ga back in about 1979 and used to use it goose hunting and it was one dandy of a goose buster. ;D I still have it but it has not been used in 20 years.
