You can start with a Rem. 870 12GA and go up from there. I've used 870's, Win. 1300's, 11-87's, and 1100's. An over and under or side-by-side is best. You get two quick shots. The Daley's are a bit light in 12ga and kick a lot for shooting over 50 rounds. A heavy gun is better than a light one for all day shooting. I've got Stoger and EAA's that work great. The main thing is to find one that fits you. 12's and 20's to start with and then get a 28GA or .410 for fun.

Whatever your favorite shotgun is. Personally i have an over-under 12-gauge shotgun with a 29 inch barrel. Works well for duck hunting as well.

No, a 4-10 shotgun would not be a good idea for shooting trap. The problem is the small size of the shell - with a very small amount of lead, you have a small chance of hitting your target. Shooting a 20 gauge shotgun is much better but still not a good idea for the same reason. The standard shotgun for shooting trap is a 12 gauge. The largest gauge allowed by nearly all trap shooting leagues, a 12 gauge has enough lead and enough power behind it to get consistent hits and high scores.

One can practice shotgun shooting in more than one place. If you have enough land you can practice there. You can also go to a shooting range and try there.
