Hard to beat the 1100 Remington. Multiple barrels and chokes that you can change in seconds...

Another fan of the Remington 1100. Soft recoil, reliable, good shooting gun. Design has been around for years and is well proven.

My 1100 Classic Trap has done me great for years. :)

The 1100 has certainly proven itself. However, I have recently switched to a Beretta A390 because it is more tolerant of a wider range of ammo, as are the 391's.

Either should serve you quite well.

Remington 1100 or Browning Gold. Either is a great gun for trap but the 1100 has proven itself time after time and lots of them still out there busting em every day.

I'm not a big gas gun fan ....they're a pain in the butt to clean / and I find them a little slow to cycle the 2nd round, so I would recommend the Benelli. Benelli super sport - you can get in a 30" barrel - and it has enough adjustability that it can be setup for a lot of shooters.

Benelli is quick to cycle - not that it matters on trap / but it shoots very cleanly - and its the primary gun I use for training new shooters. Its light - but you can add some weight to it if you want. Its also a good travel gun for me - take it to hunt, shoot skeet, some sporting clays, whatever - one gun does everything reasonably well. The rap on Benelli is it will not cycle real light loads - but mine will cycle anything, even 7/8 oz 12ga loads, as long as they are 1200 fps ( and to me that's a very light load ).

If you like the gas guns / Remington or Beretta are probably your best choices and they're a lot cheaper than the Benelli.

Got an 1100. Love it.

Also have a Stoeger (Benelli clone made in Turkey). Love it as well.

I have put a lot of ammo through my Stoeger 2000 without a hiccup. Too light for heavy use without a Limbsaver. Great for upland hunting. Does a good job at clays if there wasn't so much air around the clays.

I have a 11-87 that I retired when I got my 2000. With a Limbsaver, it is a pleasure.
