Shot skeet today, need chokes

Had a great time but need two skeet chokes for my Beretta Silver Pigeon.
Briley has the flush chokes and the extended chokes for my gun.
Other than the convenience of removal and replacement is there an advantage or disadvantage to extended chokes?

Ext. tubes should provide a more uniforn pattern due to having a larger constriction surface for the load to pass prior to exiting the barrel. Some also think they look pretty cool especially when they are ported.

I have extended tubes just because that's what I bought. Personally, I don't think they do anything besides look cool. Porting just makes them harder to clean, plastic to build up in the holes. An Extra 7/8" isn't going to be that big of a deal. You either smoke it, barely break it or miss.

I have even shot Skeet with Full because I forgot my Skeet choke, I have found the choke really makes no difference in Skeet as long as the shooter is on it. With that said, I always use my Skeet choke for the principle of the matter when shooting skeet though, plus I need every advantage I can get due to my low skill level. I'm also ignorant to the matter of how my Skeet choke patterns at distances, as I've only patterned with my full. The factory flush and the extended looked the same to me.

Also Personally, I would stick with flush tubes unless you get/have a wrench with the Extended ones you want to buy as I found "Hand tightening" extended tubes as tight as I can get them still loosen up after a while.

I've been following the thread for Loch Raven where you said you were going to this class for skeet. What choke did you end up using if you didn't have a skeet choke?

I've fallen into shooting both trap and skeet with an IC, where I used to switch to a M choke for trap.

Performance depends on the particular choke maker and design moreso than the mere fact that it's extended. For Skeet, it really doesn't matter, so I would save a few dollars and buy the flush mounted chokes.

I have been using (well one time for skeet) Cylinder for incoming targets and IC for going away ones. Iused the barrel selector to determine which choke to use. For trap I am using IM and M which seems to be fine. I generally use the top barrel with the IM choke mostly, unless for doubles.

I have found that setting up correctly, and gun position are MUCH more important than the choke. I do want to get 2 skeet chokes though, probably Briley.

ext.or flush everyone has opinion and that's what I'm looking for. So I'm going to revive this one. I've noticed a good bit of choke makers what say yunz. lets start with true lock. Beginner for the most part on this end gun Beretta 686 Silver Pigeon Sport 12 ga 30 inch. Thank You

Personally I like extended chokes. For me they work better because I don’t have dedicated guns for different clay games. When we go to PG trap and skeet we will usually shoot a few rounds of several different disciplines (trap, skeet, sporting clays, wobble). With the extended tubes I don’t need a wrench to switch out chokes I just grab it and unscrew one and screw in the next one.
As started a few posts up they do loosen up so I check them periodically.
Either style works fine it just depends on how you are going to use your gun and what you think is best.

I canít think of a reason to get flush chokes. When it comes to choke tubes Briley is THE standard. I recommend Briley (non-ported) Spectrum Chokes. There are 4 types of Beretta chokes. Make sure you know which type of choke you have.

12 gauge I assume? For cylinder choke, get whatever is cheap.
