How serious of a competitor are you? I ask because trap and skeet guns need different handling characteristics.
And it's been years since I shot any clay birds so trends have probably changed.
But trap guns (used to) have 30"-32" barrels, high combs, longer LOP.
Skeet guns were often deluxe field models with 26" barrels. Normal comb, normal LOP.
If I had $2500, I'd get a nice $1500+ skeet O/U and a Rem 1100 Trap gun (or its' modern equivalent).
Wow, a 3 year old thread! But it got me thinking about getting a 20ga skeet O/U.
