    I have switched over to full on singles and handicap but was wondering what to use for doubles? Thinking about Mod and full?

    For doubles, shoot the Mod first out of the under barrel to give you a wide pattern at a close target and the Full choke from the top tube because by the time you shoot the second target it will be further out and your pattern will have time to spread out a bit and a better chance of breaking the bird.

    I use a Winchester Model 12 made in 1947 (my mom’s birth year). I have but one choice and that’s the full it came with. ;)

    Thanks Joe. The picture doesn’t do the wood justice.
