    But I like it! Picked up my new Turkish-made Chiappa Triple Magnum today from the FFL dealer. Feels well built and tightly put together. A little on the heavy side (8.5 lbs.), as I knew it would be, but it's pretty well-balanced. Smooth breaking, and a good camo job. I grew up shooting a Browning Side-by-Side, and I've really missed shooting a break open gun with a top tang safety, but I also want three shots for duck and goose hunting. I don't shoot very many 3 & 1/2 inch shells, but it will be nice to when I want to without worrying about the longer shells hanging up in an autoloader. Can't wait to fire it. Anyway, I told some 'Fugers I'd report in when I got it, so there you go!

    God I hope all three barrels don't all go off at once!:dv :dv

    I borrow a 10 guage SxS every once in awhile. At last light on the last day of the season a few years back; I pulled both triggers just for the hell of it. It does not have a great recoil pad but the kick was not bad with both 3.5s going off. It does weigh 11 lbs so that helped a lot!

    Interesting looking gun. First thing I would check is POA/POI for all three barrels, hopefully they got it right.

    That is a azz kicker! Shot a Browning O/U ONE season and shot the 3.5 Mag Heavy Shot. Needless to say it will break a man down.

    Friend of mine has been shooting one for a couple of years and likes it fine, no issues.

    Can't be accused of floating a fourth with that one!

    That is one weird looking gun. But I admit I am a sucker for the unusual.
