    IC for first shot and light full for 2nd, but of course I'm a crappy doubles shooter. Nobody loves to shoot doubles more than I do, but most all people shooting doubles are better than I.

    Can I ask what in the hell you are doing shooting a tighter choke on the first shot than the second?! I don't even care about your unwise constriction, I am just trying to figure out your tighter first?! Tom Rhoads

    This is a subject which is covered well by looking at what the really good shooters use. Your constrictions should be close to Mod. first shot and Improved Mod. for second shot. Other variations may cost you targets.
