| | for just starting o
for just starting out a sinlge shot shotgun is fine. it will make you a better shot later on when you decide to upgrade to a pump, autoloader, double, etc. as for the choke question ..the choke of a shotgun barrel can produce a wide shot pattern( full choke) or an ever tightening shot pattern. ***** in chokes let you decide which pattern you prefer for the game you are hunting. in my opinion improved cylinder is the best all around choke to use, except for waterfowl, where i prefer a modified choke because it does better with steel shot.
