    Beretta 391 or remington 1100 and then have it customized for trap shooting.

    The only other gun in the range you are talking about that comes to mind is the BT 99.

    TRY TRY TRY as many guns as you can. You will find some better than others. I shot every shot gun Pump,O/U, single Auto's that I can get my hands on for about a tear. The XT and citori trap models always seem to just come to me better than most. I got mine used 1500.00 with americase! wouldnt have it any other way.....well if it wasnt for $$$$.

    Buy a used gun. Shoot it before you buy it. If it breaks the targets and is user friendly you can consider buying it. HMB

    If you have the ability to go to some local shoots you can look and try the guns that the venders and misc. people are selling. I bought my last gun a 687 about 2 months ago. Then I bought another. 2 weeks ago. @ the grand. when I had it shipped,... the woman with the ffl said wasn't the gun you bougfht a couple of moths ago your last gun ? HAHAHAHAHA! ENJOY.

    I know I'll get a lot of flack over this, but a new SKB 85TSS combo can be had for less than $3000. A used one would be less.

    I have an XT with lots of extras in very good shape if you think you interested I can get you details and photos. But you can't go wrong with a BT. Jim W

    Grade 3 won't make it shoot any better unless it fits you better than the plain Jane.
