Default New to Shotguns

I purchased a Mossberg 535 this past March mainly for turkey hunting. my question is can i use it for deer hunting without having to buy a rifled barrel? I dont have the money for that and my shot wouldnt be more then 75yrds. The salesman at Dick's where i bought it said all i would need is a rifled choke and i talked to another one and he said i wouldnt need anything just a rifled slug. I am really confused and dont know what i need so any help is appreciated. also it came with two barrels 28" and 22" and it has Modified, turkey, full, and imp cyl choke.

I have never heard of a rifled choke. If there really is one, it would have little effect on a slug with the short amount of time it would go through it. Rifled slugs through a smooth barrel should work fine for you. You should have a way to mount an optic on that model shotgun to make it even more precise.

Do you have interchangeable choke tubes for your 935? I looked and Mossberg says the waterfowl model includes them. I don't know what choke you have, but you should carefully check the point of impact before shooting. At a defensive shotgun class I took one guy had an adjustable choke that made the gun shoot more than a foot left of point of aim at 40 yards.
Good luck.
