Hence the 870. At 300 dollars it's amazingly accurate and handles well.

Well, I didn't mean extensive modding. Just installing an adjustable cheek-rest and recoil pad. That way, I can customize the fit on an affordable gun. As said, I really like those Stoeger Condor over/unders, and they are quite affordable.

I used to work at a local trap and skeet range when I was a kid. Most of the shooters who were Pro used the o/u. If you like the o/u, look into a Browning 12g. If cost is your concern and you want to shoot more, for practice, look into a Remington 870 or a Mossberg 500/800 12g.

12 GA. Mossberg 500 pump or 12 GA. Remington 870 pump. Either would be good enough for skeet shooting.

I grew up shooting a side by side winchester 20 that my father had. I cannot, to this day shoot an o/u. I like the feel of a side by side a lot.

For skeet though, I'd rather a 12ga. semi.

Quick skeet story:

I took my hunter's safety course a little older than most people do around here, and part of the class is handling a shotgun. They throw a few clays out and you pop off a few shots. They don't care if you hit them or not, just that you can handle the shotgun safely. I was the only one in the class that hit all three of the clays they threw, which irked the instructor, since during the demo, he only hit two.

He stopped the class and had a mini competition with me right there.

He won, but it was still sort of amusing.

Amen.

Although if you save up the money an 1100 is like the god of skeet and trap.

I second that. The 870s and 1100s shoot sweeter the more you use them.

Although, great grandpa's Auto-Five does a mighty fine job on it's own (except that whole $80 a flat for 16 ga.)

Most importantly - People suck.

870 is where it is at.

Although I use a .22 loaded with Birdshot.  That's just because i'm more badass than anyone else here.

I've shot both the Remington 870 and 11-87, and I love both.  I'd personally go with the 11-87, simply because it's semi-auto.  They're great guns, and Remington is the Tippmann of shotguns in my opinion.  They're extremely reliable and mine have never let me down.

I'd stay away from the 1100s.  They've been known to have some problems ejecting the shells after the shot.  I'd stick with the 1187.  A 12 guage 1187 will be cheaper to shoot than most other guage guns, and it's a Remington, so you know you're getting quality.

I have 2 mossbergs, a 500 and the 590.  they are great shooters, accurate and easy to handle. and you can modify/accessorize them with little or no trouble at all.  But, back on track, for trap and skeet, a Browning o/u.

One of my favorites not to mention the ease of upgrading and finding parts.

I've never had that happen with mine in the 2 years I've owned it and it's god knows how old. My grandfather won it in a raffel years ago for 2 bucks

personally, i hate the idea of a cheap over under. i don't know much about the quality of stoeger guns, but i know mossbergs are generally great.

however, i see them as utilitarian, which an over under is not. i don't think many here can contest that over unders can be as much works of art as weapons, a mossberg over under doesn't sit well with me.
