    HI
    On the sporting clays forums many have stated that they shoot without choke tubes often if there is a very close presentation with no indication of damage. Most owners manuals advise against it. I would not do it.

    As for 2) I think that it depends on the thickness of the front of the choke tube, hardness of the choke; hardness and smoothness of the concrete. A friend had his Briley choked O/U fall off the cart and it dented the edge he usually shoots with IC/Skeet, can't remember which choke got dented. I had my Rhino choked O/U fall off the cart and it left a dent in the concrete, with no damage to the choke. This to, I would not make a practice of resting my barrel directly on the concrete. There are all sorts of gadgets to not have to do this.
