shotgun info needed for clay's

I am looking for a entry level shot for shooting sporting clays:
I willstay with a 20 ga. only because my should had surgery a few years back and recoil is a major role in shooting .
I was looking at a few semi-auto but not a fan of plastic stocks.
I see some say stroeger o/u are junk but other say they have had no problems.I am not looking to get into competition shooting but will shoot a few boxes of shells in a month give or take.
I also see that a upgrade maybe a CZ O/U I like the cz mallard in 20 ga. seem to have double triggers no way can both barrel fire with a single trigger set up.
I was thinking in a semi -auto with light target loads but I read some semi will not cycle with low FPS.

Re: shotgun info needed for clay's

I'd stay clear of the cheap ove/unders,they are not worth the money. I see them brake on clays courses all the time.
A semi automatic is a nice option,and there are some great values out there.Not hard to find a used semi in the <$500 range.

Avoid the cheap O/U and Semi. I had kids on my shooting team that would buy $300 to $400 that would have issues by the end of the season. Try to find a used Browning,Benelli or Beretta.

Agreed. But really make sure you find one that fits correctly.

You get what you pay for. Don't buy the "cheap" O/U guns as they will become a "parts gun" sooner than later. You can find used semis for a fair price. I'm not a fan of semis, but if you have a shoulder issue then I'd recommend one. There too, stick with name brand manufacturers as they use quality materials.

Beretta a300 is nice entry level that won't break the bank, but not sure come in 20. Maybe a used a400. They come in 20, and very nice gun

Re: shotgun info needed for clay's

update on my stoeger 20 ga. O/U I have about 500 rounds threw shoot excellent no problems at all at the present time.
I like the gun a little on the heavy side but I am not afield hunting with it.
Bass pro had it on sale out the door $345.00 gun it tight no light primer hits and if I do my part it does break clays.
