I want to thank everyone for all the help. I'm going to get a 26" 930 in walnut. Going to put on layaway right now on Bud's!

are you shooting 16 yd regulation trap ? or chucking clays with a thrower and calling it trap . most TRAP guns are tight choked 30 to 34 in barrels fitted to shoot a bit high. sure u can shoot "trap" with a 26 done it many times but swing and follow thru become choppy with out a constant effort to keep pushing the barrel.now skeet thats another game where the short barrel used to rule.

Thanks!

I do NOT recommend the 930 SPX as a defensive arm!
So why isnt it good for self defense? I am new to shotguns and just wondering.

I see.

I'm new to this. I've never shot trap but I want to get into it and I just wanted a good semi-auto to start with. There will also be a lot of that other stuff, just chucking clays. I'm planning on moving to a more serious gun later on.

Speaking of chokes... can you change them with the 930?

Yes you can change the chokes on those guns

Perfect!

Thanks for all the help guys. I'm sure if I decide to get serious about trap I'll be back bugging you about which gun to get again.

Well, it looks like I waited one day too long and when I went to put the 930 on layaway it was out of stock. I can't find it anywhere now in walnut. I drives me nuts because I don't want synthetic and I certainly don't want cammo. So, I ended up going to Google and doing some research and ended up getting a Weatherby SA08 Deluxe in walnut. I took Tony's advice and bougt the 28" barrel instead of the 26" barrel.

Weatherby SA08 @ Bud's Gun Shop

Thanks again everyone!
