    I am looking at getting an all purpose shotgun since I am new to shooting and want one for SD as well as for shooting trap & skeet. Will the Benelli Supernova do the job? I am pretty sold on the gun for SD but want to make sure it will be serviceable for the shooting sports.

    Assuming you can change chokes, you should be able to shoot skeet with this gun.

    You could always pick up an extra barrel for trap & skeet. Short barrels are great for HD and turkey hunting. However a longer barrel provides a better sight radius, follow through etc. for wing shooting. High end trap guns often have 30 inch barrels. But a 26 or 28 will bust clays.

    It could but it wouldn't be ideal. Especially if it has a pistol grip and a shortened barrel. That and benelli barrels are expensive. Its a great HD gun however. I'm currently looking into one to have around as I don't really have any shorter barrel shotguns and I love the action of the benelli.
