Browning Ducks Unlimited Silver ???

My friend recently recieved a Browning Silver DU model in camo as payment for a concrete job he was doing. He called asking if he could shoot any size shell through the gun. Not being familiar with this gun or seeing it I instructed him to look at the barrel and read to me what it said. He replied back, chambered for 3 1/2 only.

Here is my question. Is it truly 3 1/2 only or can he fire shorter shells through this. ie 3" and 2 3/4" shells. It seems silly that he can only fire
3 1/2" shells through this. How would one practice or take it to shoot sporting clays and still have a shoulder left after a round?

I checked Browning's website but found it vague on what the true answer is.
Thank you in advance to whomever can answer this for me.

You can shoot 3.5" and shorter shells in a 3.5" chamber.
