    our son and his family who live in the St Louis area just came in for a week's visit .... he is doing his residency at the Washington University Hospital .... I mentioned your offer and he's very interested .... will contact you as time gets closer to see if something can be worked out .... either way, offer really appreciated

    choke tubes ordered and I learned something in doing so .... by ordering over the phone and not from the Briley website the operator was able to restructure the order in a manner that saved just over $20 .... we will now be taking a couple of shotguns with us for shooting skeet while in SD .... the 11-87 will most likely be used most of the time, with its light recoil, it is the one that is the most comfortable

    I must not be looking at the same ones .... the black flush and the flush (last two in the link) look to me to be the same length .... the difference appears to be the black oxide finish .... would that finish be worth $5 .... and no, I don't think I'll be changing them often, the ones it it have been there since 1990

    Jim the Flush black chokes fit flush to the end of your guns barrel, the other one has a nurled extension about 3/4 of an inch long , which makes them easier to get in and out of the gun. I prefer the nurled chokes , but if you arent going to change them a lot it doesn't really matter, they will both pattern , al though Brileys are more true to the constriction. Scott

    Briley is the site where I've been looking at them .... in this link the short tubes that our '90 model uses can be seen in the last two tubes .... one is labeled as "Ruger Flush Black Oxide" and the other as "Ruger Flush Black" .... the black oxide tubes are $5 each more expensive .... are they worth it

    chokes

    Jim , you dont need to buy Ruger factory chokes, you can get them from Briley in Texas. These are better chokes and dont require a choke wrench to install, they are about 35 dollars ea. My daughter enjoys helping people learn to shoot , and would have no problem giving you some tips.Scott

    we will be in St Louis twice this summer for a week each visit .... offer appreciated but I'm sure I'm not anywhere near her shooting class .... thanks for the info .... I've just learned that Ruger is no longer manufacturing their Red Label over and under .... the choke in the top barrel has 3 marks and the bottom has 4 .... no clue which barrel shoots first .... I thought I'd pick up the rest of the available chokes while the supply is still plentiful .... have been trying t decide if we need two or each or not

    chokes

    Jim, usually 1 notch represents full choke, 2 is imp modified, 3 modified, 4 improved, 5 skeet. Typicaly when shooting sporting clays you will shoot your bottom barrel first with a more open choke on the closer target, and your second shot with a tighter choke because the second target is almost always farther away. If both targets are in close you can use the same choke in both barrels. I am not a choke changer, if the coarse is like most then you can get by just fine with a improved cylinder in the bottom barrel and a modified in the top.....just shoot them and have fun!..Scott

    another question : with an over and under 12ga, are there circumstances in which it is best to have the same choke tube in each barrel .... example, a skeet choke tube in each barrel when shooting skeet/sporting clays and such

    question : choke tubes for a 1990 12ga Ruger Red Label Shotgun are marked by notches cut into the end of the choke tube .... does anyone know what choke restrictions correspond to three notches and four notches

    What size connecting rod do you use on that?

    I use my 18" defender shotgun? Why? Because it's what I own. Best option I have!
