    I have a Remington 870 trap and the 1100 trap, but was thinking about getting into my first trap double. What should I get? Browning Citori XT? What is out there in the 1500-2500 range?

    1500/2500 is a great range, lots of great used guns and new also. Start shooting different guns. For what ever reason All the XTs I tried just felt right and shot nice. I bought a used XT with americase for 1500.00 love it.

    The XT is popular with our guys - a lot of gun for the dough.

    IF YOU LIKE REMINGTONS, A 3200 WITH THE UPGRADES WILL RUN YOU 1000-1400 DEPENDING ON CONDITION/WOOD

    You have a realistic budget to work with. You will receive all kinds of advice and opinions. The best bet is shoot and compare the Browning XT and the Beretta 682, (or any 68X series). They are well within your budget and are both well made good guns. I prefer the Beretta, but again that's just an opinion. Bottom line; try before you buy. Good Luck. Ed

    There is a Perazzi Grand Italia which has been posted on here for a while for $3,000. Now that gun does not have drop out triggers but possibly you could negotiate a deal on it.
    If you are not in a hurry, you can find a Perazzi for under 3 grand.

    I am partial to the Remington 3200, I have owned two or three over the years and loved every one of them... I am currently down to just one though.. having upgrated to a Kolar Combo, cant beat the remington 3200 in my opinion.

    I also owned one of the original Winchester Selects that i used for sporting clays.. that was a good gun for the money, but i traded it straight up for the 3200 I have.

    Find what fits you best and shoot the hell out of it.

    Colonel Reb, Wayne above has a another good choice as well. It is important that you like the feel of the gun you buy. So try as many as you can at one or more of the clubs you shoot at. Do not overlook the SKB 85tss as well. Another very good gun for the money. The customer service at SKB is one of best in the counrty. Resale might be off a little from the others mentioned above. A Good buy if you can find a used one, you can't go wrong. Good Luck on finding one. Hope this helps you out some. Break-em all. Jeff
