Remington 870 then!! Almost impossible to brake and never have to clean the thing to make sure it works.. I sold mine to buy my
Beretta and wish I still had it to mess around with now and then..

Look for a good used Model 1100. You don't need two different chokes for Skeet. All the targets are close to 21 yards away.

Where I shoot skeet the 28ga and .410 are really popular. These guys don't miss either. I often use my grandfather's (mine now) Winchester 1897 in 16ga. It's history and fun too.

My point is you suggested a $2000 over/under shotgun to a guy who just said his budget is $400 and who wanted a single barrel shooter.

Your right I didn't fully read the thread. You pointing it out is not helping the op.

To the OP one of the guys I shoot with uses a Mossberg 500. It takes extra practice to use a pump but its not a bad option for the money.

I'll qualify that. I have shot skeet less than half a dozen times. On my first double's station ever, I broke the pair. I was using a Remington 870 Express pump shotgun. Got mine for $300 flat out the door. Look around the interwebs for a $30 rebate.
