Also, I just read a previous post that asked the same question. They had said that using a choke is bad but the gun place in town where I live said that they had used the exact same gun I use and had the modified choke in it and that it didn't hurt it at all. When I sighted in my scope it didn't seem to be all over the place like they had said it would. "The football without a spiral as the said." Nothing bad happened also thankfully. So I am really confused now. I don't want to go out on Monday thinking my shot could fly in any direction. Or something worse could happen to my gun or me.
