What kit does Andy ‘Crowman’ Crow use to shoot pigeons?

Question: What barrel length and choke does Andy use for his pigeon shooting?

Andy Crow replies: I use a Beretta with a 28” barrel and usually either ¼ or ½ choke. However, I do sometimes use Skeet, too. It depends whether birds are decoying well or flighting past at longer range. My Berettas do pattern pretty tightly with my custom-loaded 32g 6s so you would need to experiment with your shell and gun to get something that works well for you. I also prefer a Sporter to an out-and-out game gun.
