    Since I duck hunt with a synthetic 870, I was thinking about using the 870 rather than my Beretta 686 sporting, just want to get used to pumping for duck season. Don't really worry about how many I break, just think I need to get used to using the pump. Question is, what choke would you suggest I use. Thanks

    Why limit it to just one choke if you have choke tubes? I shoot sporting with an 870 with IC choke because it is fixed choke. It works well for most targets but there are always a couple of stations where I wish I had a full.

    I have an 870 TB Trap and use a skeet barrel for duck hunting and sporting clays. Works for most shots. That steel shot patterns tight, and most clays shots are close enough for the skeet choke and #9 shot. Good Luck. Jim

    Did fine on 4 stations w I/C choke , missed all 10 on one station, probably needed mod or full.

    I guess you missed what Harold eluded to. How much trouble would it have been to bring a Mod and/or Full choke with the choke wrench along.

    Skip may also been right. Unless you obviously hit the target but no chips because the pattern was to sparse.
