    I'm on a budget of 4G for a new gun. Haven't been shooting long and am now
    using a rem 1100 w/syn stock. Nice gun. low recoil, hits the mark. I would like something with a high rib. A BT99 with an aftermarket high rib has been suggested. Any other ideas? Don't know if I will get into doubles so don't know if it's worth it to buy a combo gun. Ideas!? Thanks!

    I have a very nice Browning XT with adjustable soft top comb and R.A.D. Recoil system. If you want to have the opportunity to shoot doubles as well as singles a O/U would do th trick. $1900 would by the XT. Jeff

    JEG 687 Combo, might have to go slightly used for your budget.

    Don't buy anything, untill you try as many guns at all the ranges you go. You'll know which one to buy when you try the right one for you. Always use new factory ammo in guns that you borrow. Most shooters love to let you try their gun if you ask. Good Luck in your Search/Journey. break em all Jeff

    A Krieghoff KS 5 special or KX 5 is a significant upgrade and will surprise you how well it will shoot for you. Check them out. (well within your price range.)

    Does a Beretta Combo on a 682 frame make some sense? Does a 391 from Coles over in Maine make sense? Two worth looking into for the price described. Probably find an MX-15 used in that price range. Test shoot some!

    Since you are a newer shooter with a $4K budget, and a high-rib gun is your goal, consider this:

    Browning's BT-100 can still be found in fantastic condition for $1500-1600 and the glossy version is arguably the most serious trap gun per dollar available. I say "serious trap gun" because it's incredibly durable if taken care of, plus it has a drop-out trigger which is adjustbale for LOP, pull weight and eject/extract. This purchase would leave you $2400 for a clinic with Leo or Harlan plus 35-40 flats of shells. That's the best use of a newer shooter's $4K budget that I can imagine.

    Good luck whatever you choose to do.

    If you can "hit the mark" . Why buy a different gun if yours is shooting where you are looking and breaking targets now? High rib , low rib, no rib....breaking the target is what matters here. Larry Lockhart

    It might be a good idea to get another 1100. One set up with a high rib and adjustable comb stock. That way you will have a back up gun for spare parts. Usually you can tell if a gun is user friendly after one or two rounds of trap. Try to find a nice used one, that way you can get to shoot it before you decide whether to buy it. HMB

    There is also the possibility of a BT-99 plus in good shape for around $1600 or less. You will still have the rest of the $ to do what GW22 suggests. Mike.

    If it were me I would either look for a good used TM1 or TMX, Browning XT or BT99. Then have the gun fitted to you and in the case of the Perazzis have them brought up to "Like New" shape by Guamino (sp) in New York. Then spend the balance on either shells or components. But in either case make sure by shooting other's guns that either are what works for you. Who knows, you might find that something not even mentioned here will work well for you. I guess I'm biased by those two mfgrs. but the Italian and Brownings seem to work well for me.

    If it were me, I would buy whatever gun made my heart go pitter-patter. Don't listen to the people that say spend your money elsewhere! Buy the gun that you want. It is only money and you only go around once.

    BTW, I would seriously consider the TMX or TM1 if you want a single barrel trap gun. Also a Remington 90T. Joel Etchen combo if you want a combo gun.

    Depending on whom you speak with, most top shooters recommend shooting in the range of 5,000 to 6,000 rounds to go from the honeymoon to a full on relationship with a new gun. The assumption is the gun has been fitted to you and will need only a slight amount of tuning to dial it in.

    If trap doubles is going to part of your game, then a combo makes sense and Browning, Beretta combos can fill your requirements in projected price range.
    I don't know of any Perazzi's or Guerini's used or otherwise that fall into you $4,000 budget.

    If your looking to shoot more all around like sporting, five stand and skeet, then an auto may be a better way to go. Beretta's and the new Fabarm is where I would look first as they offer the rib requirements you seek. Fabarm would be my choice because they have all the necessary adjustments to dial in the gun.

    As most have said, try before you buy. Don't make judgement on one box of sheels.
