If you've got $700 to spend, you can move well beyond the entry level O/U's, such as the Mossberg SR you mentioned. In that price range you have a lot more guns of higher quality to choose from.

If you want to buy a new gun to shoot both trap and skeet with, I suggest you consider going with a semi auto or an O/U, with a 28" barrel and removable chokes.

When it comes to semis, you can generally find new Remingtons, Mossbergs, and Stoegers in your price range. All seem to have a good reputation among their owners. Some folks will beat me up for mentioning the "S" word, but the Stoeger semis seem to be pretty decent guns.

When it comes to O/U's your choices for new, better than entry level, guns is pretty much limited to CZ/Huglu (around $800), Lanber $700), and Yildiz ($500). These guns are also popular with their owners and are designed for recreational shooting and hunting use.

If are willing to sacrifice new in favor of high quality, you may be able to find a good used Browning, Beretta, Weatherby, Miroku, SKB, or Ruger in your price range. These guns all have excellent reputations, can hold up to the rigors of competitive shooting, and hold their value well.

Good luck with your search!
