I saved up for a beretta AL391 urika 2 last year.. Love the thing.. Such a soft hitting semi auto 12ga.. Any Idc what anyone says about cleaning semi autos.. I can clean mine in 30 min chamber and all and ready to shoot again.. Once put 450rds without cleaning and never had a problem with it!! Also I got mine with the kick-off system which does make the recoil even softer..

What's your price range look like?

Only a repeater, semi auto or pump, because you shoot doubles in Skeet.

I don't know anyone that has a gift for shooting skeet that sees a pump as a handicap. Most people hunt with pumps in this area, even though they have nice guns for hunting. Almost every time one goes hunting in this area they end up beating briers and other impenetrable brush down with the butt of their gun. Knowing this is going to happen not many people take their nice shotguns hunting. In turn, everyone shoots a few rounds of skeet or sporting clays with their hunting shotgun. I see a lot of perfect rounds shot with a pump.

For competition skeet shooting the double barrel rules. Having 2 chokes is an advantage that should not be ignored.

Shot a Lot of Skeet years ago.
Used side by side, pump, over and under,
And my 1100.
Never had a problem with the 1100.

Years ago, the Model 12 (Winchester pump) was seen in lots of skeet events. There was even a skeet grade Model 12. Now, however, a pump gun is rarely seen in competative skeet. The long barreled over/under now rules the skeet field. In skeet shooting, two chokes are not an advantage. Even the most competative skeet shooter puts the same wide open skeet choke, around .003 points constriction, in each barrel, and uses high antimony #9 or #8 1/2 shot, depending on the gauge.

Remington imports a "Spartan" over and under....mine was about $350. SPR310 No frills but a solid gun....it feels just like the Ruger Red Label...but those were out of my price range. I got mine at Gander Mountain.
