    Tell me about it. :D

    What do you plan on doing with it? Back before they invented the screw-in choke, they made 'em with 30" full choke barrels, 28" modified choke barrels and 26" improved cylinder barrels. My brother bought one with a 28 modified, and I hunted with it for years. But in the close-in woods around here, the choke was too tight and the barrel too long. When he broke down and bought a 26 improved it was so much better. The gun swung easier, I started actually killing things instead of missing them. :)

    They recommend modified as the "all around" choke. Tight enough for high ducks, but open enough for close quail. But I found that a shorter barrel with a more open choke worked so much better for me.

    If that gun's got Rem-Choke, then wonderful. You can put any choke you want in it, from cylinder to extra full Turkey. But if it's fixed choke, you probably need to decide what you want to use the gun for, before buying.

    That sounds like an adjustable buttplate.

    Good Lord girl. I just looked at the clock. It's one in the morning where you're at. Go to bed.

    That's what I'm about to do.

    When I was stationed in Rhode Island, I went to the Kittery Trading Post, it is a heck of a store. It has been many years since I was there, but they had a stuffed Moose in the center of the store, that is a huge animal.

    I think your question was answered but to add my 2 cents worth. A lot of states will allow the sale of a long gun to residents of states that border it. I don't know if Maine is like that or not.

    Actually, as long your state and the state you are buying in have similar sales laws, it doesn't matter how far you travel. Here in Tn we have no wait, Mi has no wait on long guns either so I can buy in Mi and transport home.

    hey beth...you need a skeet/trap gun with an adjustable comb and screw in chokes, so you can shoot both skeet and trap with it.

    why not call kittery and ask them what you need to do to buy a gun from them?

    long guns interstate laws are very lacks. not to worry.

    There are only 9 states that are no out of state purchase states. If you are from one of them you are out of luck. They are the regular hardcore gun states. Any gun shop that knows what they are doing should be able to make sure it is legal.

    Beth, that gun did not appear to have an adjustable comb.

    This picture shows both an adjustable buttplate and an adjustable comb. The top of the stock can be raised or lowered to fit your face and shooting style, instead of you having to learn to fit the stock, the stock can be made to fit you.

    It seems to me that if THAT gun had screw-in chokes, it would have said, in the ad, "Rem-Chokes", but I didn't see that.
