I have a supernova and want to take it out turkey huntin but dont have any clue on what choke to use and Im not sure if the pistol grip will be worth it.

If you have a pistol grip or choke tube you like please tell me and put some pics of what the pistol grips look like(how much are pistol grips)?

I would say a full choke will kill any turkey standing in 35-40 yards in front of you :wink:

I am also thinking of getting a pistol grip/ thumb hole stock for turkey and deer. Does anyone know if this will make the gun unworkable for skeet?

You will still have your old stock so why not switch it out for whatever season your in.

If you get a Knight TK2000 make sure you get the thumbhole stock. The secondary safety will eat your freak`n thumb right off when the thing goes boom

A pistol grip stock promotes bad form in shotgunning. You only benefit, as I see it, when your sitting with your knees at your chest. When you shoulder a shotgun your rear hand (the one on the stock-not forearm) should have your elbow up high almost pointing straight out. The pistol grip makes you keep your arms tucked in. Bad form for consistient shooting.
