Is it feasible to shoot trap with a Remmington 870 20ga with a 20 inch barrel? Is there a certain choke I should have considering my barrel length? I currently have a modified choke.

Thanks for your input.

It will make it a little more challenging.

Have you patterned it? That's the only way of knowing what to expect. Throw you up a target in the pistol range, put on a full choke and see what pattern you get at 30 and 40 yards.

After you see that pattern you may decide to back off on the choke a little.

Use the heavier loads for a little more range on the trap field.

I went trap shooting for the first time tonight. I used my 20ga. I met an off duty instructor and he spent some time with me, got me joined with a squad, and stood with me at the line. It was a blast! I hit 2 targets. I thought that was OK for someone that had never shot a shotgun before. I've signed up for a beginning class.

Now I just need to find that 20ga full choke. No one has them in stock. Can anyone recommend an Internet retailer which might have it?

Thanks.

The Remington website should be able to tell you where you can find them.

www.brownells.com will have them also
