Not sure I understand the thought pattern, play on words intended, about "the way to go" here. So what does someone do, carry assorted screw-in choke tubes and a wrench with them to change out tubes as they go about their emergency, self defense, confrontation to optimize the pattern?

If you are in a situation that you are trying to protect yourself or your family just shoot the BASTARD and worry about the choke latter !!!
Does that make sense to anybody ???

No leave your cyl choke In Your gun but if you want to shoot clays....or hunt with the gun you can just change the choke and go it's not restricted to just an open choke

Your skeet choke has very little constriction and will work just fine for HD with buckshot.

Versatility is great. But did we really answer the OP's question?

I've read everything here from "choke doesn't matter at 30 feet" to "you want to be able to switch choke tubes."

Here's mine where the total length is 20" by PolyChoke (they can just as easily make them 18") and change the choke by dialing the muzzle -- that's it. These were popular once and I still think they are a great idea. This is my 5+1 takedown truck gun...

Those are nice I have an old Mossberg bolt action and a semi auto savage that has the poly choke

For social work, I'd use cylinder or improved cylinder with buckshot, and a modified choke for shot.

They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.
