My first question is this, does the choke size in a 10 yd encounter really matter? Answer is no.

Second question, does a pellet that wont penetrate drywall have enough power to penetrate a badguy? Answer there is no.

Building on that, if the ineffective little pellet bounces off of an irrational drugged up thug, will the said stop trying to rape/kill your family?

You ask true/false questions and get them all wrong. Congratulations!

So, if the spread of an open cylnder is 70% of shot within a 30" circle at 15 meters how big is the pattern at 10 (yards)? "It doesn't matter"!? Wrong.

Do you understand shotguns and chokes Phil? Let me answer as you couldn't have a poorer track record. The answer: no. Go study, do the math on my simple question, and then come back to the shotgun forum.

I do apparantly you dont. What at are almost all home def barrel chokes? Open. What does the military and police use? Open.

Simple question for you, what is the actual difference in the pattern at 10 yards, between a modified choke and an open choke, firing any size of buckshot? Actually check it out, then come back here once youve figured out some things.

There's a real simple answer to what you need to do if you need a tighter pattern from your shotgun: Use a slug.

You don't need the pattern to be tighter at spitting distance, you need it to open up faster. If someone makes a choke that opens up the pattern, that's the one you want.

How far are you going to shoot people? How long is the longest hallway or how wide is the largest room in your house?

If it's much beyond 15 or 20 yards, I'd skip the shotgun and use an AR-15... Or load a slug in the shotgun if you're anti AR-15.

The built in "funnel" was for quicker loading of the short barreled/high-charge close-quarters arm particularly when moving as on a ship, a carriage, along a parapet...

And yes, I own and shoot even those.

Use no choke at all! You don't really need one for home defense I wouldn't think!

exactly! you never shoot a shotgun that has screw-in chokes without one installed. not unless you plan on chopping a couple of inches off the barrel.
