You can shoot skeet, but not too far away with a smooth bore. The barrel on security models w/ extended mag. tubes is not interchangable with hunting models. (learned the hard way, even bought a new 24" barrel). The mag. tubes are pinned in on security models (mine is a 500A) as opposed to screwed in on hunting models. This is not listed in the books to order, nor do they tell you this when ordering unless you ask. I had my fav. gun shop / range order mine, and they were not informed when looking it up nor ordering. Use shorter shells for tighter patterns to get more distance.

Hi Sean, Sure you can use your 500. It might be fine just like it is too! I'd try it and see how you like it. You can always upgrade later on and you will have as much fun as anyone shooting. Good luck Mike

Can you use a shotgun to skeet shoot?

Yes. It would be almost impossible to shoot skeet with anything else besides a shotgun because clays are small, fast-moving targets. The multiple projectiles from a shotgun make it possible to hit clays. You will want to use target-specific shells--anyone at an ammo store can help you find the right load.
