Florida Hunter Safety Course


Full Choke

Of the three most common chokes, "full" is the tightest. It keeps the pellets together over a greater distance and is therefore used for longer shots, generally between 40 and 45 yards.

Modified Choke

This choke is not as tight as the full choke and is used for mid-range shots, usually between 30 and 40 yards.

Improved Cylinder Choke

This choke barely controls the spread of the shot and is used for shots between 20 to 30 yards.
