Clays, 12ga. As I don't think your entertaining any subguage matches for a while. Trap anything under 12ga. 1-1/8oz load and your basically handicapping yourself.
A ribbed barrel is desirable. what pump are you shooting? Maybe an extra barrel with chokes, full chk for trap and cylinder for slugs. If you get into shooting every week you will prob get a dedicated clays gun. Their are trap specific guns if you are a trap only guy. Nowadays "Sporting" clays guns do all the clay games pretty well and after shooting strictly skeet with a 26" cyl, sk, bored ou for yrs, i went with a b525 and can shoot trap, skeet and sporting clays with it. Most mfg's have a "sporting" model now, even the rem 1100 sporting is a decent all around gun and if recoil is an issue the auto will absorb slightly more than a ou or pump. Then comes reloading and unless you want to resize brass regularly an ou is the way to go. If you just shoot trap a few times a year, get a ribbed and interchangeable choke, extra barrel for your only shotgun.
