Hi there.  There's a lot to consider before buying a new gun.

New or used?

Price range?

Double, single, or combo barrel(s)?

Brand preference?

Try to see if any companies are out in your neck of the woods letting people demo their guns.  Your local club may even let you demo some of their rentals.  Beretta USA came to our local club this past weekend in their truck and let us demo their shotguns for free on one of the trap fields provided we supplied our own shells.  I finally got a chance to try out the DT-11 Trap, and let me tell you it's a fantastic gun, but $12,000 is a bit much for my wallet!  I'm in love with it, though!

I'm a Browning guy personally so I'd recommend a BT-99 as that's what I currently shoot singles/handicap with.  If you can find an older model in decent shape - go for it!  If you're lucky you'll find an '80s model with screw-in chokes.  My particular gun is an '85 and it takes standard Invector chokes.  I like using extended choke tubes purely to protect the muzzle of my gun.  There's nothing wrong with fixed chokes; however, you may want to consider mic'ing the bore to verify choke constriction.  Someone over the years may have had a gunsmith open up the chokes a bit.

You can't go wrong with a Beretta 682 gold e combo. Just put the Graco aftermarket adjustable comb hardware on it. The factory comb from Beretta is limited in it's adjustment and not as durable. A great dependable trap gun for the money.
