Get a Mossberg 930 with a 28" barrel, then contact Choate Machine and order a 10 round (+5) extended magazine tube and have a great time. You will have less than $500 into your rig and if you get good, manufacturers will be giving you guns to shoot with. The 930 is more than reliable enough especially if your just starting out...

I have 2 Mossberg 930's, one is the 28" field version and the other is the 930SPX, the SPX has a +3 mag extention and I can shoot all 8 shot under 2 seconds. I've tried the "hand-thrown" clays thing... I can get 4 maybe 5 depending on whos counting and if counting 2 breaks with one shot counts....

The key is to have fun....

The only reason to go with the longer barrel is the Mag Extention won't stick out past the end of the barrel with a 28". Choate recommends a 9-shot extention with a 24" barrel length.

Make sure to use a plug during "hunting season"...
