Trade/Sell my 930spx?

Has anyone seen the current gun craze effect the tactical shotgun market? I bought a Mossberg 930 spx back in'09, but I find myself shooting more skeet/trap nowdays. Obviously this gun isn't suited towards that that use, so I'm considering other models.
Just to be clear, this is not an ad. I'm just looking to see if now is a better time to sell.

I haven't seen too much of a change in either Shotguns or bolt action rifles. It's pretty much all going after the semi auto rifle and 'high cap' pistol crowds.

I certainly don't think that you would lose money on it... but you're not going to make a 3X profit like some of these guys selling their AR's are...

I've seen Bushmasters selling for $2500 locally... and actually selling. Stripped lowers at like $350. It's ridiculous.

Tax refund time is approching. Money usually burns a whole in some guys pockets.
I've attempted to sell guns at various times of the year. I've never come up with any set pattern. You either have soomething someone else wants, or you don't at that particular time.
I've listed guns that didn't last a day and other that I couln't give away. Throw it up for sale and see where it goes.

I guess while I'm here I should get some input on models to investigate.
I'm looking to stay below $800. That pretty much limits me to autos, but I would entertain O/U or SxS. New or used.

Beretta 391
Remington 11-87
Remington 1100
Winchester X3

Any obvious ones I'm missing? Use is skeet/trap and VERY rare deer/hog hunting outings where rifles are prohibited.

Yeah I've been watching too. Seems like only new guns and used guns with lots of accessories are selling good.

"Tactical" shotguns seem to be going up around me. Expecting to finally sell my moss 500 Persuader for the ridiculous price I have been holding out for.

Then I will be using the 930 field combo
