    I have a friend that shoots an 1100 pretty well. All of a sudden, he wants a break open gun specifically for trap. With a budget of $1300-1400, what would you think he should be looking for? My comment was stick with what you have and save your money. He's dead set on getting a dedicated trap gun. How would you advise?

    In that price range, a Browning BT-99. No doubt.

    Why do people always recommend a single barrel for trap? They are forgetting about 1/3 of trapshooting, DOUBLES, the really fun trap event to shoot.

    Find a good used OU to shoot.

    A BT-100 will fit nicely into that price range as well. Or better yet, find a 682 and add the O/U'barrels later!

    Buy an O/U. He'll then be more flexible, as he can shoot it on doubles and 16's or everything. If he shoots his 1100 better on 16's or HDCP, so be it.

    Make sure it has an adjustible comb!
