Kind of weird that my first post on here is about something other than my XD. I guess that speaks for the gun. Anyways, I have a 12 ga. Winchester 1300 that I bought back in High School, the end of the barrel split about 2 years ago. I took the barrel off and cleaned the rest of the 1300 and put it in the gun safe. I pulled it out the other day, now I am wanting to get another barrel and actually use this again when the snow is gone. My question, what barrel length do you guys prefer for just going out and having some fun shooting? I have a Rem. 870 that I do most of my bird hunting with. So I am free to turn this into something different. I am torn between the 22"-28" vent-rib barrel, maybe a slug barrel, not really sure. What do you guys like using/enjoy shooting with the most?
