Most new shotguns come with plugs now days. At least they do here in AL.

What're u guys going on about? Didn't I see an 18-1/2" barrel on the carseat next to the gun? That's your Open Cylinder TACTICOOL barrel. Done. Mod choke is most versatile for everything else. And with a rib -- pretty nice too. Other than having a Poly-Choke (IMO) or screw-in chokes, you have the most versatile set up and maybe the best value and most reliable actions available. Good purchase (tho I would recommend changing the safety switch to a metal one as soon as you reasonably get the chance).

DO INDEED go to hardware store and find a dowel that will fall into the barrel-nut screw hole -- ask someone here to tell you how long Mossberg makes 'em. Cut a piece the same length. That will let you get up to two 3" rounds in the tube when duck hunting. Take it out with a sharp pin by centering the dowel so it falls out thru the hole again and you can get up to five 3" American Made shells in the tube. Like I said. TACTICOOL!

Note: duck are often longer range shots and may need Full Choke depending on your hunt. Compensate with slightly bigger pellet size. I presume your barrel is modern enough for steel shot without bulging given the rib...

HeviShot (or one of the other high density waterfowl brands) for duck hunting, the modified choke will do just fine. Steel shot for waterfowling is inhumane in my opinion.

Got the dowel works perfect. Cut it right around 8 inches.
