Default NEW GUY NEEDS YOUR HELP!!!(choosing the right shotgun)

Hey everyone im brand new to the forum and guns in general!!! Ok so heres the deal, I've been wanting a shotgun for quite some time and i finally decided to get one! Im looking for one that i can do pretty much everything with but mainly for skeet shooting and deer hunting. Iv been looking at some 12 gauges and i like the Benelli Supernova, anyone know anything about it? And i don't wanna spend more than about $800. Also what length of a barrel should i get? Benelli supernova come is 24",26",& 28"? Thanks guys and any advice or information would be greatly appreciated!!

For skeet, 28-inches to 30-inch barrels. For trap and sporting clays 30-inches to 32-inch barrels. For bird hunting in the field, shorter and lighter is usually the rule. So, all things considered, a good 'overall' length is 28-inches.

I have 28" on my Baretta 391 - 12 ga and Remington 1187 20 ga + 870 20 ga.
Why ? Longer barrels just swing smoother. I would also advise you to get a gas gun for skeet w a good recoil pad.

A good instructor can help alot and dramatically shorten your learning curve. (Several good threads on skeet and skeet guns)
