18" is fine if you will be hunting heavy brush or the reeds along a creek/river. If you need to make shots out to 100 yards go with a longer barrel

It depends on if you speak with a british accent or not.

On my hunting shotgun I have a 28'' barrel. The longer barrel allows you to reach out further. Im sure it is all preference though. Try your 18'' and see what you think, if you do not like it get a longer barrel.
