You know, i used to shoot skeet all the time with my 590. It wasnt easy, but once you get used to it, you can do pretty good. Of course, I went out and bought a Mossberg 9200 just so i could have a choked barrel to shoot skeet with, and I do considerably better with it.
But, go ahead and try it, just dont get too fustrated if you dont start killing clay targets right away.
And, if anyone starts giving you smack about it, hand them the 590 and say "I'd like to see you do better with this gun."
