Now, I think I would probably be best served with the Express Synthetic and purchasing a Full Choke and possibly an Improved Choke if it will go in, but I don't know that it will. Will it? Also, If I get the Express Turkey, can I take the choke out and load it with 00 buck shot for home defense? Do slugs work well in an open cylinder?
First the less restrictive ( choke ) would be better for the slugs assuming you are using a std rifled-slug.

next the choke provides a more denser pattern and should not have a direct effect on velocity.

In the above models you would do fine with both and leaning towards the longer barrel for turkey and other birds/waterfowl.

also, never fire any load without a choke installed. I reccommend that you start out patterning with a very open choke. Most people get over crazy with using full and extra-full chokes, they have their application and surely are great for turkey but in most parts IC- thru Mod or Imp-mod are about the everyday norm.
