MAn - I showed up to the range, with a Mossberg 535, all camo for the woods. I was cold and smoked some dude with an antique Browning and clothes that cost more than my gun.

It's the shooter, not the iron.

Get the cheapest 870/500 you can find. A pump will be fine for trap. I'd recommend an auto for Skeet. No fun with a pump. It CAN be done - but it takes a LOT of skills. Not for beginners. Not even some experts.
