    I have a new Mossberg 500 /w 24" barrel /w interchangable choke tubes. Xtra full and a mod. Would this be ok to dove hunt with? Or should I invest in another choke tube or barrel?

    Depends on how and where you hunt them. But a modified should fit the bill under most conditions.

    All though I prefer a 26" barrel, you should be OK with the 24" barrel and Modified choke. If the birds start flying close, you might want to open up to an IC choke, which is what I shoot 90% of the time.
