Dale,

See my post on the trap area.

I use my used Mossberg 500 12 gauge all the time for trap and any other shooting that I need. It is a great all around gun and remember it is the shooter more than the gun that makes a hit or miss! :D

I think it is fine for a beginners gun, there is/was a 500 Trap gun as well, it is deadly to a shooter that it is fitted to. The only problem I have with ANY pump and shooting trap is recoil.

Just don't think you have to have the biggest/baddest bullets to break a trap target, try to find some 1150 fps 1 ounce loads (RIO/KEMEN/FIOCCHI/REMINGTON) all make them, getting beat up is not necessarily part of the game. Fiocchi also makes a 7/8 ounce training load, it will break 16 yard targets with the best of them when choked properly.
