Looking into the Mossberg 500

I'm looking the Mossberg 500. I'm probably going to get a combo with 2 barrels. From the choices on there website, which barrels do you suggest for deer slug hunting and trap/skeet shooting, because those will be my main uses for the gun, although I'll probably pick up a 18 1/2 inch for HD later.

Also, the LPA trigger? Is it worth almost $100? Im a kid saving up for a shotgun that I will have probably until I pass it on to my children. Is it worth it, or is it just a marketing ploy?

I know Mossberg has a rifled barrel (for deer) and 28" barrel combo for the 500. That would be perfect then buy the 18.5" barrel later. My buddy just bought one before Xmas for $299.99 plus tax

I have 2 rifled barrels for my 500s. Ive never used them. I hunt deer with standard rifled slugs and a 28" VR smoothe bore barrel. a 28" VR will do trap skeet hunting whatever - and yes a 18.5 is a great idea. None of my mossbergs have the lpa trigger. Maybe look for the Field/Security combo.
