Twenty years ago I used to shoot a little skeet. I had a Citori skeet but it has since been sold. I’m thinking about starting again on a recreational basis and interested in skeet and possibly shooting trap for the first time. I’d appreciate your recommendations on which browning models to consider. I will be purchasing a 20 gauge just because I like the smaller gun. When I had my previous gun I really enjoyed shooting 28 gauge.

A 20 ga. is never going to be a serious trap gun, with that in mind I'd look at a 725 sporting with adjustable comb, excellent for skeet or sporting clays and will certainly work for 16 yard trap, the one I own is my favorite shotgun ever.

For a 20ga the CXS is wonderful.

As mentioned above it's not gonna be a trap gun. Also as mentioned above the 725 sporting is a great option.

Personally if I had all those uses in mind I would buy the 12 ga. CX
and buy 20 ga. sub gauge tubes.

If you like the 28 and are just shooting for grins and giggles (i.e. not competition) why not get a 28 on a heavier (but still sleek) 20 gauge frame? Brownings are made on 20 gauge frames, some Berettas are as well

forgot he said 20ga, I don't think the CX is made in 20ga.

Thanks for the helpful input. I’m starting to warm to the idea of buying a 12 ga and tubing it for either 20 or 28 ga. That way if I get more interested in trap I have a legitimate gun for that sport. The CX seems to fit the bill so I’m going to start doing some shopping. Thanks again for taking the time to provide input.
