Shooting a shotgun w/ no choke

Is it safe to shoot a shotgun with no choke tube screwed in, or will this do permanent damage to the gun/threading?




Thanks

DO NOT shoot your gun without a choke in it.

You'll destroy the threads.

If you are looking for a good spread choke, look at the BRILEY DIFFUSION. Thats what I have and it has helped my game 10 fold. Its basically a rifled choke almost.

I am aware of this, but they do not manufacture such a choke for my 10 gauge

biggest spread choke I can find is modified

I know its a novelty of a gun, but I would like a imp cyl or skeet choke for next dove season. I think it would be cool to use my new 10 gauge reloader and load up some nice #8 shot and give it a try.

search cylinder choke instead of skeet or dove chokes. They make them for browning 10 gauges.

You know you could just use a 10-to-12 adapter, right? Then you could shoot cheap 12ga ammo at skeet.

for the most open pattern you need the cyclinder choke. the tighest pattern will be trap full or turkey full.

why the hell would you want to use a 10ga on a little dove? You hoping to turn them into a dust of feathers?

That's pretty much the result of that little test.

I was brave (or dumb) enough to pull both triggers on my old man's SxS 10ga on a dove a few years back. It was like a hand grenade in a pillow.

Why not take a brake hone or an adjustible reamer to one of the chokes you have and open it up?

Not really with the development of the 3 1/2 12 gauge shell

most see the 10 gauge as obsolete nowadays
