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

Yes. It would be almost impossible to shoot skeet with anything else besides a shotgun because clays are small, fast-moving targets.

Yes, although they both use clay pigeons.

The only difference is that it had a 1/2" shorter barrel than the 500A due to the full chokeAnswerThe Mossberg (New Haven) 600 AT is essentially the same as the Mossberg 500.

In the US, yes- so long as it is for a lawful use, AND you have no cause to believe that the other person is prohibited from possessing a gun.
