Best .410 for adult 5'1" daughter

What would your recommendation be for my daughter.

.410, 3", shortish, pump, prefer largest mag.

What LOP would you recommend?

I've looked at Mossberg Bantum, Mini.

Are there mag extenders for the above?

Any recommendations.

First time post.

Thanks guys.

Welcome from Florida!

Why a 410 pump? What's the intended usage?

Primarily squirrels and snakes. Random rodents. We live next to a forest.

Any particular reason to go for a 410 pump as opposed to, for example, a 20 gauge semi?

.410 less recoil.

Pump as she is newer to guns.

.410

When I was a kid, Dad got me a Winchester brake open single shot .410
shot lots of rabbits and pheasants with it, wish I had that old .410 back, but was cheaper to shoot the .410 back in the 50s then it is now...

The first gun I bought my wife at age 65, was a 20 gauge semi-auto. She is about 5'4" ( and would kill me if I told her weight) but the recoil was nil and the cost of shells were less that the cost of a .410. Just a thought.

Why 410?

Why 410? I would prefer 20 ga. for a child or an adult. Longer usage time, still inexpensive ammo, good all around shotgun. Recoil is similar too.
