    Been getting more and more into shooting skeet and while my $150 mossberg 500 is doing good, I shot a semi-auto a couple weeks ago and was very impressed. So I have a couple questions on these

    What is be best value-for-the-money model (like the 870/500 for the pumps)?
    How much are they?
    Anything to watch for?

    Oh, and I may get a SAIGA at some point, but I would also prefer a more traditional model first...

    Only places I have gone skeet shooting were with a friend at River Bend (that place is nice) and at my uncle's property out 316.

    I did not know there was one by the airport, but given how much of a mess it usually is around there, I'm not exactly going to jump at that oppertunity.

    Could be fun.

    River Bend's was really nice too, I am considering applying for a membership there. Just have to get over the steep application fee. yearly is like 300 bucks, which I can easily spend $25 a month on range fees around here, plus they have alot more choices to do.
