I’m just getting started shooting trap and duck hunting. Just shot trap for the first time last weekend and it was a blast. Looking for something affordable that can work for both. Primarily looking for an over under or a semiauto. Thanks

Bump looking for a semi auto or over under for under $500 is possible. Or I have a TruLine TNT and a roddy super 88 for trade.

Look into the EAA MC312. Turners had it on Sale for $349 brand new in black or $399 in Camo. I field tested one and it shoots ok for an entry level shotgun. Uses the same bole as Berretta, Benelli and Browning but for a fraction of the price.

You don't fish with junk, why would you hunt with junk? Spend $800-$1000 on a shotgun and you will have it forever. POS shotguns you will never find parts for. Find a used Remington 1100 or 11-87 autoloader for $600ish. If you want new then go with any of the 3 B's. Beretta, Browning, Benelli.
Some people just have budgets and want to get into the sport immediately without breaking the bank. But I agree with the 3 B's.

I have a cheap mossberg 500 and have shot plenty of ducks, dove, turkeys, quail, pheasant and other stuff just fine. Maybe I’ll upgrade one day but for what I do it works just fine. Just practice with it and know your pattern.
