    I want a shotgun for sporting clay but between being a lefty and having a 13.5 LOP ...Was thinking a over under but the LOP is still a issue unless I go youth which fits great but the barrel length drops down to a 26 in. and I'm looking at a 20 guage insted as well...So now I'm actually throwing in Benellis left handed 20guage youth in the mix...I guess my concern would be is a 26in. to short ?

    Not at all. I shoot a 21" barrel Remington Special Field for everything, including trap.

    Why not just get a full sized 12 gauge semi and get a spare stock off eBay and cut it to suit you?

    Because the shotgun I actually wanted was a benelli sbe left handed and the stocks aren't wood...I tried writing them twice on there web site to see if I could get a youth stock made...I ended up getting a Beretta 686 O/U for 800 less then I would of paid for the benelli...Oh and they never even wrote me back...I always wanted a O/U any way...I'll still do some research...I might just get Benelli's Motefeltro and call it a day but the lack of customer service has turned me off enough to explore other options as well.
