    .

    A very good local trap shooter has as his only trap gun an older Browning which had a fixed Full choke when that was all that was known.

    He shot very well with it.

    A few years back he had it modified for screw-in chokes.

    Bought one screw-in choke -- Full.

    After 20+ years with the one screw-in Full choke...

    He has concluded that it shoots just as well as the original fixed Full choke did...

    So no harm done.

    My question would be:

    Why thread a fixed Full choke barrel just to go and put a Full choke back in? Oh well, his gun his money. Glad it worked out.

    Took a pretty big risk making a change like that, didn't he?

    A trap shooter and his money are easily parted.

    Donald, you are the ATA's poster boy when it comes to parting with money on this game.

    You forgot to mention that, as with most trapshooters, he never removed it and it ended up basically welded into the barrel forever, LOL.
