I have a 28" for Coyotes works fine, I'll find out in the next few weeks how it does on Turkeys
Would a 24" or 28" barrel be better for turkey huntin?

How long is the barrel with the fixed choke? You could send the barrel out and have a screw choke system installed.
Its one i already have. i was given a single shot NEF 12 gauge a few yeas age and i have never taken it hunting because i figure i would rather have three rounds in my Beretta than just one in the NEF (Sometimes i need all three ) i hate lookin at it just sittin there so i figured why not a turkey gun. but it has a fixed mod. barrel so i was going to get a full choke barrel for it.

JRW, I am old school when it comes to shotgun barrel length. I would much rather use a 28" or 26" barrel shotgun for any type of hunting than a shorter barrel. Go to a trap, skeet or sporting clays range and see what barrel lengths all of the shooters are using. Longer barrels are easier to point straight and swing smoother than short barrels do. Smooth and steady is much better than too quick and jerky.As far as using a single shot for predators I wouldn't do it no matter what the barrel length is. Even though I don't like short barrels I would use a 20" barrel 3 shot pump or semi-auto before I would hunt predators with a single shot. Quite often no matter what load you shoot it will take more than one shot to stop a coyote.
Yeah my Beretta (my everything gun) has a 26" barrell but i have an old single shot that i was thinkin about turnin into a dedicated Turkey/Predator gun but it has a fixed mod. barrel. i want a full choke barrel but they only come in 24" and 28". no 26" unfortunately because thats my favorite also. so its just between 24" and 28". for just walkin around it the woods and for weight id rather have 24" but is there and advantages to a longer barrel in accuracy or would i be able to make longer shots?
