    I just bought this Mossberg 500 at cabelas - see pic below and really like it. The fit and LOP is perfect for me. Although I'm not sure what the LOP actually is. I have been trap shooting with it and am very happy with my scores, 19, 23, 19. Does Mossberg make an actual trap gun with similar dimensions as my gun -see pic? I believe barrel is 28 inches and it weighs 7.5 lbs. Or can you recommend another brand?

    That is a field gun and trap specific guns are built with different dimensions for a specific purpose. You will probably need to cover the bird with the end of the barrel when you pull the trigger. Use a modified or tighter choke. Have fun shooting your new gun. As you learn more and get better, you can then decide whether to move to another gun. Mark
