[quote=622589]Another reason to pattern your shotgun is that they are notorious for not hitting where aimed. First, they have a built in elevation for shot drop at 40 yds, so they shoot high in close. Secondly, there isn’t much concern on the alignment of the barrel to the reciever if you are using a semi-auto or pump, so they very often shoot either left or right of where the beads line up. If the pattern isn’t centered where aimed, and your shotgun doesn’t have a set of adjustable sights, after market adjustable sights are available… its almost worth getting them just for the low-light capability.
[/quote] BAZINGA!!! Shotguns don't always shoot where they are pointed! THAT is the major reason for patterning your shotgun! Choke don't mean crap if your gun doesn't shoot where it's pointed! In fact, it can make you miss bigger! My buddy killed 2 big toms last year with a mid 1950's Remington 870 Wingmaster 16Ga. with a modified choke barrel! But, that gun shoots where it's pointed. As far as I'm concerned, some of these "turkey chokes" are for guys trying chancy, long distance shots in order to put a bird down on film and then brag about the choke tube! Learn how to turkey hunt and you won't need such things.
