its not a matter of which one you like...its a matter of learning basics, then improving. trap is the easiest to grasp.

On any kind of tight budget, a Benelli or Beretta A400 is a real stretch.
The dressed up 311 is what I am talking about. The real fox shotguns are very nice. Even the dressed up 311 brings a good price.

I don't know what the problem with stevens might be. They have partnered with several popular gun companies and made good guns. Yet, today the 320 is the best they can do. From what I understand the gold wing is discontinued.

The Gold Wings were made in Turkey and rebranded. They had a ton of issues with them. A classic example of why I never recommend a cheap O/U. You are far better off with a good used semi. You can get a much higher quality of gun for way less money with a repeater.

Grabagun had the Beretta A300 Outlander with Synthetic stock for $648. That's a really good price but I sell them cheaper on my website. My wife uses that shotgun for clays and she loves it.
