In your case i would recommend a non choked .410. This is a shotgun that carries a tight pattern using regular shot, and can be substituted for a
medium range shot using a slug.
ammo wise #6 shot will be your go to as it will hold a basket ball size pattern around the 25 yard mark. Hunting wise this ammo will be deadly to
medium and small critters such as rabbits, squirrels, fox, turkey, water fowl, ect. at the 25 yard range.
.410 slug will hit a target 50 yards easily holding an aimed pattern in the size of a standard beach ball. Hunting wise you can easily kill large game
up to 35 yards such as deer, bear, wild hogs, cattle, ect. I would be hesitant to say a clean kill shot on moose and larger animals.
Family use, this gun has a minimal kick making it less frightening to shoot. The size of the shells allows the maximum storage capacity being able to
store at a 2:1 ratio over a 12 gauge. i wont mention it here, but a .410 can also shoot a particular rifle round that may be of interest. Youtube can
show you which round. .410's are light weight, fairly short guns, that make a great go to in any situation.
