What Spruce said!^^^^^^
I started out with an Ithaca M37 12 gauge with a 28" Mod barrel.....didn't know any better, it was my first new shotgun. That long barrel was replaced with a 20" cylinder bore slug barrel which 1) let me hit birds and 2) did not make birdburger out of the close range hits.
After I had worked for a couple of years I celebrated return to school with an Ithaca SKB 100 M & IC like Spruce's but in 12 gauge. I still have it. My buddies carried SKB 500 20 gauge o/u with open chokes. One had both barrels reamed cylinger.....hard chrome lining ruined the "smiths reamer.
