Everyone I duck and dove hunt with uses a full choke
I'm not against a full choke it just seems that a modified might be better as an all around choke. Obviously I'm wrong. I guess I just need to work on my shooting.
My 1100 has a mod barrel. Hell, every old 1100 just like it that I have seen has a mod barrel. No idea they were so rare
They may not be rare...maybe everyone that has one is hanging on to it. Most of the ones I've seen for sale are full chokes. Again, just going based on what I've seen while shopping around.
I would think you'd be a better shot if not killing something meant you didn't eat.
no reliable pump or auto designs...
A5, Model 12? ...About as reliable as it gets.
