I got a NEF Pardner for my kids - Nice little gun. However I would not recommend a .410. Too light and ammunition is far more expensive than it should be. Were I to do it again, would get a 20ga. Guess if I wanted to spend a few bucks, (less than a hundred) I could get it rebarreled. NEF/H&R rebarrels their guns in a large selection of guages, rifle calibers, depending on the particular action. So your gun can grow with the needs of your shooter.
Have several NEF/H&R guns, Love them. Fun to shoot, far more gun for the money than they ought to be.
