    If you are going to do it right, you need real trap guns with stock and rib high enough for the targets.

    Remington 870: Reasonably priced and durable. Requires extra effort to pump when you move up to doubles.

    Remington 1100 or Beretta 3xx: Soft on recoil, autoloading for doubles. Throws hulls on ground and must be maintained for reliability.

    O/U: World standard clay target gun. More expensive. Browning Citori or entry Berettas are good. Minor make O/Us are pretty rough, I'd rather have an auto than a cheap Spanish or Iron Curtain double.
    I have a few facts and a lot of opinions.

    Kind of a broad question. Looking for Semi? Pump? O/U? Any other uses for it-hunting/HD? Price range? Experience level?
    Far to many variables to consider before anyone can make an appropriate suggestion.

    My trap gun is a Winchester 1400. Light enough, soft enough, reliable as they come.

    Trap-singles-specific guns, like the BT-99 can be found on the used market starting around 800 up to 1200; however, as stated - budget? action style preference? Is this for backyard shooting or at a gun club?

    Trap guns should shoot above point of aim, since you are shooting a rising target. If a typical field/hunting gun throws a shot pattern 50/50 above/below the bead, a trap gun should be 60/40 or even 80/20. A Monte Carlo stock and a high rib help achieve this. Many guns are made in specific trap version, from Remington 870s on up. You can often buy a trap barrel for a hunting pump or auto, and add a raised cheek piece to the stock.

    My favorite trap gun is a Browning Citori XT. (a double) Not a cheap gun, but an extremely durable and well made gun. The Browning BT-99 single is also a good choice. Browning makes a combo Citori with both a single and double barrel. A Remington 1100 trap gun is also a nice one to use.

    Choke should be modified, improved modified, or full. Improved modified is a good start.

    1 ounce 2-3/4 dram loads of #7-1/2 or #8 shot work great. Winchester Super Target or Remington Gun Club brands work well. If you want to reload your own, use Winchester AA hulls or Remington STS hulls.

    I have always wanted to see someone shooting trap with a Siaga...lol...but I dont think the sight radius is long enough.


    My 1100 was the best trap gun I ever had.
