Whatever.............................YOU ARE DA' MAN :1:Rotti: 3rd post and you're the etiquette monitor?
OK, I'll answer the question to the best of my ability. I've yet to hear of anyone wearing out the choke tube threads in their gun's barrel. But if you could find that rare bird...would he know how many times he's screwed/unscrewed it?
And do we know if he typically leaves the choke in if it's gotten wet, so it's rusty in the barrel ? And who did the threading? Some are better than others. And which choke tubes? Factory or after-market?
So, I think I'm safe in saying that if you keep the threads and choke tubes cleaned and lubed (and don't force the choke in with a 5-lb hammer)...the answer is: "a whole bunch of times." And I seriously doubt anyone has counted choke removal.
There, Miss Manners. Is that better?
