What did your ears ever do to pi** you off that bad? Ported choke tubes are extremely loud. The only one I've been able to find is a more constrictive Super Full Turkey Choke. Which, if that's what you'll be using at living room distances, you'd be just s well off using slugs. With that thing, all the shot will still be in the wad at 15ft or so. I'd stick with a imp-cyl choke for a HD gun. But since you asked, here ya go.

I have found that for room clearing distances it doesn't matter what choke you have as they'll never expand much past a fist sized hole...

That being said I prefer a Mod or a LM for HD work just in case they happen to be across the length of the house...

Are you just going for some form of "tacticool" look? Otherwise, you should have no reason to breach your own doors from inside your house.....And ports are very bad for hearing - as someone who has shot ported target shotguns for over 20 years, I can tel you they serve no purpose except to get clogged with junk and bother your ears and those of people around you

"Tactical choke?" Hmm..Im not familiar with such items. Frankly, Im a fan of "true" smoothbore barrels myself...at least when it comes to HD and/or short range/mid-range shooting.
