I'll try to keep this short because usually I get lengthy.

Shot clays at a friend's farm not long ago and loved it!!! Never had any interest after shooting my tactical shotgun because I didn't think my shoulder could take 100 rounds nor even hit anything! Fast forward and after shooting a semi auto, it was way softer and I was hitting clay!

Now I'm hooked!!!

I've done a lot of research/reading before posting this so I'm hopefully not asking dumb questions.

I know I need to hold different guns to see how they feel before anything! With that said, I am leaning towards a Maxus carbon fiber or sporting...also not sure if 28" or 30"? What I need help with is should I be looking at something cheaper to start with...SX4, A300? I eventually want a browning so I feel going cheaper is just money that I could have put towards what I want.

If it matters (aside from me holding them) I'm 6'2" 225. I will be primarily be using this on friends farms with a thrower and every once in a while sporting clays and trap but right now friends places 90% of the time. I have no interest in hunting and that's where I feel I should go with 30" but in the back of my head I feel the 28" is more universal if I change my mind.

Thanks for any and all help in advance!!!

Which gun did you use at your friends? That seemed to work for you from your post.

If you like the Maxus, get a Maxus. 28" or 30", which ever feels right to you! Those 2" matter only in your head.

I wasn't sure if it made sense to go 30" because of my height and because I don't plan on hunting with it?

A 30” would be fine for clays. Your height shouldn’t matter. If tou ever did want to use it for hunting, you could purchase an additional barrel in either a 26” or 28”
