I'm thinking of getting a shotgun with which to shoot trap. Points to consider: 1. First shotgun, hopefully only shotgun. Running out of room in security cabinet. 2. Want American made and not super expensive, so near as I can tell, Remington and Mossberg are only options. 3. Looking at 28" to 30" barrel. 3. Any particular difference in quality between Mossberg 500 or Remington 870? Or the particular models of each type? I don't live anywhere near the ocean, so don't need a marine model. 4. I would kind of like a pump, though I know semi-automatic would be much better if I branch out into skeet or sporting clays. Local club does have a doubles part in their tourneys. Semi-automatic rifles are boring to shoot though. Running the pump is just fun. 5. Do NOT need it for home defense. HKVP9 will work fine for that. 6. Near as I can tell, I should avoid ported barrels- loud and difficult to clean. 7. Keep it below $550 or so dollars. I've shot my nephew's Remington 870 and it was ok. Short stroked it a couple of times. Any other comments or recommendations?
