I was thinking 2s due to, occasional geese. The choke isn't the issue it's the steel content of the barrel that's why the post.
I've been duck hunting since before steelshot, I'm covering lots of other stuff with him already. He's got the biggies already from other hunting...camo...don't move...patience.
And I've been prepping him some I told him to take the shotgun out, just practice swinging while constantly pulling the trigger. To avoid the sudden STOP when shooting. And butt-belly-beak-bang. Inside the dekes follow the beaks. etc
WOW I'm gettn' pumped a bit now already!!! ANYWAYS...any other info on the gun will be helpful
