Look at Verona shotguns. Good shooter for the money.

Big 5 special, Mossberg 500 with a 28" vent rib and the 18" for home security, its like 250 when they have them on sale (which is always, just ask for the sale price) before DROS and Tax.

Any 28" 12 ga huntin' iron with a screw in choke will be fine until you decide if you want a fancy trap gun. make sure your starter gun is worth keeping or has resale value if you need to sell it to move up.

You cant go wrong with a remington 870

the express comes with a removable choke barrel, should work just fine.

I plan to shoot trap with my 870, 18 inch BBL.

Good practice for operating the slide quickly.

I'll second the Remington 870. I had a 30" full choke that I wish that I would have not sold years ago. Let 'em get down range and powder'm. There everywhere. -g

When I first started I used a Remm 870. It is great for trap and sporting clays. For skeet it was a little long, but it is do-able.
