I shoot an XS Skeet with 30 inch barrels for skeet. I wanted 28s but settled for what was available. For sporting clays, I use a 28 inch barrel field model O/U and shoot low gun. I don't compete, I just shoot clays to keep me in good shape for hunting. I would feel right at home at the sporting clays range I frequent with a 28 in XS Skeet.
