My Ruger O/U has 26 inch barrels. I seem to do as well with it on skeet as with any other gun.
Our range has a 26 inch minimum rule on shotguns, I think mostly to keep the tactical/HD shotgun crowd away.

I shoot every S/G I am allowed. The latest was the 21 inch M2 Benelli. It is a TAC with all that implies. What was interesting was we were getting consistent hits on the clays with a 21 inch barrel. Medium choke.
Hoogh-ragh!

Except for a Mossberg 500mbarrel on a HD gun somewhere in the closet, I am the opposite - NONE of my guns have barrels shorter than 28, most wear 30 or longer. I found the shorter barrels to be way too whippy for me for sporting and FITASC, especially the 25: Remington put on their 1100 sporting gun in 28 gauge. Once I added an 8oz weight, it was much better but still not that great

Agreed, but no need to handicap yourself when there is better equipment for the job. I can frame a house with a hand-held cross-saw and and a brad hammer, but they aren't the best tools to use.

to do what? win a trophy?
guns are tools.
if its all you can afford, one must learn to use it.
not everyone smokes cuban cigars and can afford to keep the gunsmithing guild in business.

Don't smoke and rarely visit a gunsmith. Guns can be much more than tools, but using your analogy, then you should use the right tool for the job

You bring it, I'll shoot it. Do I need to bring 410 ammo? I'm bringing about four flats of other stuff now!
