Sporting clays shooters can be guilty of over-thinking their choke selection. I change chokes sparingly and only do so to avoid situations where I might not have enough choke for a specific target. I don't mind being slightly overchoked for a close target but if I don't think my choke is sufficient I will shoot faster and not as smoothly.
I don't often change my light mods. If the target is close then perhaps I have a little too much choke but certainly not so much that it interferes with my thinking. But when I reach for the improved mod it's because I genuinely believe I need it.
Time spent twirling chokes when it doesn't matter is time spent not learning about what the target is doing. Not having exactly the right choke is far less of a problem than not understanding the line of the target.
