        Well if a budget isn't a concern order a custom merkel and have at it. Jokes aside Remington 870 ain't a bad choice

            Ok defiant one since you didn't give a budget number I will wing it. Dawg is right budget wise the Remington 870 is a good choice and if you want to go semi auto look at the Stoeger M3000 M3k. Its a lot of gun for the money $450 to $550.

              Pmacc60, Good Pick....It's hard to guess their answer! I would say a used Mossberg 500 12/20gs $200. Pawn shops are loaded with them.

                    Going to the trap/skeet range with a cheap gun? Well, that takes courage! Put the ear protection on as soon as you get out of the truck. You don't want to hear what the snobs will be saying. :-) Don't let it bother you. At least a couple times a year I take my beat up old 870 goose gun to the weekly shoot and humiliate many of the hot dogs with two to four grand shotguns. If you can find an old used A-5 Browning with modified choke barrel, that gun would do the job for you. Mine does. One with a barrel booger (polychoke) or choke tubes (late run Japanese models) would be even better.

                          small game sportsman: Now that we have had our fun with your spelling glitch it would be great if you could give us abit more info. Price range ? Auto, pump or break action (s/s or o/u)? New or used ? Will you actually be shooting targets at a skeet/ trap range or just with buddies from the thrower stuck in the ground ? Birds you will be hunting ?Any chance you get get a part time job to increase the budget since Bernie and Hillary will not be giving you one ( a gun that is ) ?

                            My best guess:they Hock them for X~Mass Gift money and can't buy them back + Interest. On this past monday I bought three 500 in 20ga one in 410 they sell fast.

                              A5's not very comfy.
                              Better, much better IMHO, to get an 1100.

                              While 2 to 4 grand for a shotgun seems like a lot, let's keep things in perspective..........my coworker's skeet rig (tube set) was close to 30K.

                              I prefer my 1100 over my bud's Superposed field, my other buds 3200 or yet another's Broadway Trap.

                              Have not tried a Krieghoff or Ljutic though.
