I'll second the 1100. There are a lot of good used ones available as well. I have been using them for 51 years, and I will not own an unreliable firearm. The biggest enemy of any semi auto is the nut on the back of the stock.

Benelli makes the most popular clay semi autos. If you are on a budget I would look at a Mossberg 930 with a 28" barrel...30" barrel if you can find one.

Benelli makes popular semi autos, but I sure haven't seen many on the clays ranges. Berettas yes. Gas guns dominate on the range. But for anyone on a budget of any kind you can't beat a used 1100 unless your tastes run to Berettas.

Remington 1100 is a classic.

Beretta A400 is popular.

Benelli Super Sport.

What you might find that will be in your budget in a old stevens double barrel choked in skeet1 and skeet2 or improved cylinder and improved modified. If you find one it can be had for $350 or so.

No, you will not get a stevens fox for $350. The stevens fox is a collectors item. they were only made for a few years.

I think you are confusing the Fox Shotguns with the Savage/Stevens Fox shotguns. The Savage/Stevens Fox shotguns were dressed up 311 actions with ejectors and single triggers and a little better wood. The old real Fox shotguns in good shape are much more valuable. Savage/Stevens bought Fox for the name.
On any kind of tight budget, a Benelli or Beretta A400 is a real stretch.
