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.

So what's your input? Or are you just picking on what others post?

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.
