If I had to guess, I suspect your beautiful Skeeter is choked fairly tight. You'll be surprised how it will reach out, and still do it's job.

Edgar, on my skeeter, my choke gauge measures the right barrel Full and the left barrel measures Mod. The barrel flats are marked C on the right barrel and O on the left.
Reverse chokes?

Thank you Jay for putting this event together. It literally was a blast. Met some new Parker people which kept the conversations lively. First time in several years I shot my great-grandfathers TA 12 gauge that he ordered new in October 1886. I say several years because the gun was on a long journey to have a second set of barrels made. Original barrels are cyl/cyl Damascus and I wanted a more versatile set. Kirk Merrington sleeved a new barrel set for me which I then had Briley choke tubes installed. Everything worked flawlessly except for my shooting.

It was a great get together, and I was a little disappointed that more didn't participate, especially a few who live so close.
I was delighted to shoot a new-to-me 20ga BHE. I had literally only the day before, fitted a set of 26" barrels to it, though it still has it's original 28" barrels. I don't think anyone noticed I put on a pair of gloves, if only for the first few shots. I alternated between stations using an 1892 16ga BH and the 20. I attribute my less than stellar performance to the cold, and off and on spitting rain. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
In the end, it was a good time, everyone seemed to enjoy both the shooting, and the get together luncheon afterwards.

You mean those little white cotton gloves to avoid getting sweaty fingerprints on fine guns??

No, the kind I wear when I want to pet a Komodo Dragon.

2) ____________ready to shoot
That's our host, Jay Oliver

Edit, sorry I misunderstood Russell's post. The shooter in the box, in the first picture, was Jay Oliver.
