Which choke tube should be used for shooting slugs in an I-12?
I'm pretty new to hunting (as this is only my second year). I got hooked last year borrowing a buddy's gun. I recently purchased an I-12 for an insanely good deal. I was thinking more about pheasant and duck hunting when I bought it.
I'm having trouble finding any information as to which choke tube can or should be used specifically in Franchi's I-12 when shooting slugs. Does anyone know which tube would be the correct tube? Or should I just entirely avoid shooting slugs through this gun?
I don't have the money to purchase a rifled slug barrel, or a slug gun this year. So my options are somewhat limited.
I haven't figured out yet how to delete my post, so I'm putting an edit in instead. I must have glazed over it the first time, but I found in the FAQs that it appears the answer is to use the Cylinder choke tube when shooting smooth bore slugs.
Sorry to have wasted anyone's time in reading this.

Reason: I think I found the answer
I just happened to have seen this on the customer service FAQ.
Q: What choke should I use for slugs? A: A Cylinder choke is recommended for shooting rifled slugs in a smooth bore barrel. Sabot slugs should be shot through our fully-rifled slug barrels.
Cation makes fully rifled choke tubes for sabot slugs that work pretty well,and they are only $43.95 from Brownell's.Check 'em out!
