Shotgun Question

Just got my Mossberg 835 today!!

It came with a turkey choke on it. The question is: Since I don't want that choke on there, is there some kind of cap I can buy to put on there, that will not act as a choke but will protect the threads from getting fucked up by the shot? Or is that even a concern if I pull the choke out of there?

TIA

Remember, some people are alive simply because it is illegal to kill them.

What do you plan on doing with the gun, shooting clays? Home Defense, etc?

I dont like shooting my shotguns without a choke in them, although I have had people tell me that it wont hurt it. If your shooting clays I would just throw an IC in there and be done with it. For home defense I would just leave the choke that you have in there.

I'm gonna be shooting clays with it, and HD duty besides that. I don't really plan on hunting with it, I just wanted a decent shottie.

So, an Improved Choke is what you would recommend for the clays?

Cylinder (no constriction): Skeet, Sporting clays, Upland, Slugs, Defense
Improved Cylinder: see above
Light Modified : see above
Modified: Upland, Sporting Clays, some trap
Improved Modified: Upland, excellent all-around trapshooting choke
Full: Still can be effective for longer upland bird shots, waterfowl, turkey, and it is THE most widely used trap choke and "old stand by" for trapshooters
Extra Full; Super Full: Turkey

I'm not a big shotgunner, but I do enjoy shooting clays every now and then. With that being said, exactly what is "trap"?

It's another form of shooting clays like Skeet, 5 Stand, Sporting Clays, etc.

It's practice for upland birds. Basically you have a "house" that has the bird thrower in it that is about 15 yards in front of you and you have five stations fanned out behind the house. You get 5 shots per station then you rotate after that. The thrower throws the birds in different directions.

it's where you shoot clay pigeons coming out from beneath a house in front of you. You shoot from multiple stations arced behind the house, and there are singles and doubles.

Shooting without the choke will be ok as long as you only use lead shot but it is not recomended for repeated use like that.

Thanks for that answer, I'll probably just get a different choke.

Not a problem most are only about 20-30 dollars. When shooting trap I uselly use full improve modified or modified depending on which gauge and yard line I'm shooting from.

I'll be shooting from 15 to 35 yards, what would you recommend?

Your going to want a tighter pattern if your shooting 35 yards out.

Trap is usually shot from the 16-27 yard line.I use modified from 16 and then go tighter the farther I go back but I'm also useing a 12 gauge with 30" barrels, ashorter barel or smaller gauge will require a tighter choke pattern.

So probably a modified or Improved modified?

35 will be longest shot, but the vast majority will be taken at 25 and less, now that I actually think about it.

For 35 yards you can go anywhere from a modified to a light full.
