for $200 you can get a 500 or 870 but not much else that is worth taking home. or you can pick up a NEF single shot hammer gun for about $100.

yes it is, But you can do it with a stoeger coach gun :yes: A few of us shoot sporting clays with coach guns about once a year just for the fun of it. Then again, When we shoot sporting clays there is absolutely 0 seriousness involved. is is all about the heckling and fun. You might get the A target first, You might get B or you might get them both at once..... :biggrin:

You will be happy with the 500, they are a tough ass gun.

Now go shoot it a lot.

If you wanted to spend extra you could always go for a K-80. :thumbsup:

I would look for a nice old wingmaster you can find them regularly on gunbroker for $200 if you dont need a 3" mag gun which most dont since the 2 3/4" shells are great for most hunting and all target shooting. the 870 wingmaster will be much smoother than any 500 or exp. rem and make for very fast follow up shots when you get used to the gun. I have shot several perfect rounds with my wingmaster 28Ga. and am faster on my follow up shots than most are with an auto
