    Any OU would do with tubes, screw chokes and adjustable comb. 32s might be long for skeet, 30s maybe better.

    Rem 1187 with a 28" light contour barrel and a monte carlo stock. (Keep in mind the receiver effectively adds 4" in length.)

    JBrooks is right. I'd add: adjustable rib.

    1100 with a Jack West stock, 28 inch. Or with extra barrels. And Tru-choke insert (or Poly Choke) that screws in.

    I would want 28" barels BUT, the same gun won't work for trap, skeet and clays, unless you change stocks between events or have an adjustable comb and change the drop to the comb. A gun that fits you for skeet and clays won't be a gun that also fits for trap because a trap stock will have much less drop at the comb. The 28" barrels are too short for a lot of people, but are just right for me for skeet and clays. I shoot gun down to get practice for hunting. I agree with Michael McIntosh, the rules allow for a mounted gun at skeet and now clays, but you don't have to, and it is better practice to shoot gun down.

    MX3 34/31.5 round mono combo. Wonderful balance. Old style for the classic trap look. Just an adj comb and good health to enjoy the ride.
