Default Barrel Length Question

I mainly use my O/U for upland birds. My all purpose shotgun is a TriStar Viper G2 12 gauge with a 26" barrel. I got the 26" model because I felt a 28" was too long for tight turkey woods. My question is this, for upland birds and waterfowl does the 2" difference make much difference? Should I be looking at getting a 28" for the bird hunting? Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

With modern screw-in chokes those 2 inches mean even less.

Best advise - Buy "extended" screw-in chokes (only way to fly) !

+1 on that.
Better option, use it as an excuse to have one of each.
