Although, I would go with a 28" barrel. The 28" barrel will give you a longer sighting plane. But again, it's all personal preference.
For more info, refer to the "Does barrel length have anything to do with it?" topic in the Shotgun Forum.
Duck Whittler wrote:The only down side to the shorter barrel is when hunting out of a blind it is a lot easier to ring your buddies ears than with a longer barrel. 4 inch shorter barrel maens your 4 inches closer to their heads when you shoot. If that is not a problem go with what feels the best to you.
