Heck, I feel kinda weird. For skeet I use my old Stevens 311. The barrels are too short, the chokes are too tight and it doesn't technically "fit me" being a bit short in the pull. But I've over looked those things for about 25 years now, I don't see any reason to stop now. Use it for sporting clays too.
And since it was brought up, I use a recently aquired 870 for trap, for soem reason I shoot it alot better than the SXS in trap, but I haven't tried doubles yet.
And since this was also brought up (boy this thread got to chasing alot of rabbits), I stared shooting the clay games alittle over a year ago and I've found nothing but a bunch of great guys who went out of their way to help out a newby. Made soem great friends and learned alot (tho apparently not enough to ditch this SXS).

A 311 by any other name is still a 311

Another vote for the good ol working man's double, the 311.
Bear in mind they are available with Sears, Wards, Western Auto, and other names on them.
Same gun, usually at a lower price point.

IMHO on of the best bargain guns around.

Do watch out for the Tenite (plastic) stocks, replacement wood is available.

Generally speaking the shorter barrels are IC/MOD (24" 26")
Longer barrels are usually MOD/FULL (28" 30")

Both of my 311s are not marked as to choke so I hope the above information is useful to someone.
