BEST Shotgun SLUG for 32" Full Choke barrel

I have an 1897 Shotgun and wonder if I can shoot and kill a deer with a Shotgun slug? It has a 32" barrel that is FULL CHOKE?

Is it safe to do?

Is there a particular brand of slugs to use? Type?

Got lots of deer.

I don't think I would try shooting a slug through a full choke.

I also would not shoot a slug through that barrel.

Thanks guys. I guess I will let it collect dust. I like to take a deer with every gun in the house. Maybe I'll shoot a squirrel with it, birdshot only of course!
