    Plenty of people with good advice here on TS.com

    1. Tell what you are currently shooting and what you want to shoot.

    2. Just trap... Singles, Handicap, Doubles, Bunker? Will you shoot skeet or sporties at all?

    3. How about your current experience level?

    A little basic background and some people here can steer you in the right direction... If at all possible you really want to shoot the gun (or a similar model) before you buy it.

    I'd have to agree start out with a good auto, but don't overlook the browning gold series. You can break a lot of clays with them. The best trap gun for the money is the Browning pump trap IMHO. Bill

    That TM-1 looks pretty nice.....run it through Giacamo's and you will be set for a long time. You could get a nice SKB 85TTR for around $3000, and you won't be disapointed either!

    TM1 is an excellent choice for singles.

    There is a Browning XT on here for $1650. Shoot singles, doubles, handicap, and due to interchangeable choke tubes...sporting clays and five stand. Decent resale. Anything that goes wrong, Skeet's Gun Shop can fix.

    Before somebody jumps on me, I am not saying this gun is superior to the high end trap models, just that they are a good gun for the money. Martinpicker

    I'm with Martinpicker. The Browning will work for just about any shooting I can think of. If you ever decide to trade guns or sell it will be worth almost if not all of what you gave for it. Parts are readily available, and lots of goods gunsmiths that can work on it if needed. Plus the price is in your budget.

    Used Ljutic; can be moldy and oldie, but can be like new with a run through of service at Ljutics. I consider any loose or old Ljutic a serviceable "core"...

    And the possibly troublesome Ljutic is only that way due to owner neglect over many, many, many years. Oh, and they shoot well too!!!

    Look around at some of the bigger shoots coming up and try some out! TM-1s, XTs, Ljutics, Berettas, lots of superb options in the price range you are looking to spen. Have fun shopping, and find one that you shoot well!
