New to forum and to turkey hunting. Always deer hunted but have started seeing alot of birds. Read info on types of guns but wondered about barrel length. Other than a little added weight are their any disadvantages to a longer barrell.

The longer barrel will give you a better pattern and more velocity.the smaller barrel is better for being able to move around on a turkey.Most shell co. pattern out of a 30" barrel because they pattern better.
