I, too, have an 11-87 Premier but 28" Rem™
Choke AND Left-Handed. I do have a rifled and sighted deer barrel as an extra. Have taken lots of dove and a deer. I seldom use it on deer unless a guest at a club requiring only shotguns. My preferred deer gun is the Browning BLR Lightening in .30-06.
I find the 11-87 a great gun in all categories Thunder mentioned.
