Would you laugh at a duck hunter with this

The Chiappa Triple Crown...Yes, Triple barrels. I know the germans have been known to make triple barrel guns before, but most commonly with 2 shot guns barrels and a larger 7MM rounds, exact specs escape me at the moment.

It looks a bit ridiculous, but the initial reports from Shotshow this year are that it feels like it will handle great, but I haven't seen any reviews with range time. MSRP looks like its around 1600 bucks, with a hopeful street price of 13-14 hundred.

In my search for a sxs this coming off season this may have entered into the mix. Do you think you'll see one in somebodies duck blind next season. Will you laugh deep down inside. I don't care to much what someone thinks of my choice of firearms or anything else. But at the same time, I hate to be lumped into the new generation of duck dynasty hunters with un-needed, over fabricated equipment.

So here we go, opinions, thoughts, jokes.

I thought it looked cool. Would be great for places like australia where ( I heard) they can only hunt birds with break action shotguns

It's nine pounds loaded. I wouldn't want to lug that thing around.

Didn't know it was on the racks already. Mind me asking what you paid for it?

Ive seen its picture around, but haven't yet seen one. I too was hearing stuff from the shot show, brought it up to one of my buddies and said, lets get it for mass flock shots! But i hear people complain about guns being nose heavy, COULD YOU IMAGINE THAT THING? I dont think id see it anywhere near a duck hole but maybe a trap/skeet range! If i did see someone with one id be pissin in my boots to shoot it. :yes: :yes: :yes: :yes: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:
If offended, and or irritated with the above post, please refer to my caring face :hi:

That will the the last place you see that gun.

I've seen plenty of boom-clicks, or just plain clicks, from over-unders at the sporting clay range.

The design of a pump or semi-auto shotgun allows for large tolerances in machining. That's largely why they are so inexpensive.

Double barreled break actions demand much tighter tolerances. They need to be crafted like a fine watch. And that's why economy priced doubles cost more than economy pumps/semi-autos, yet still manage to suck twice as bad.

I've looked at this shotgun on the web quite a few times this past year. Wish I could handle one in a store, but looks like the closest distributor for me is in Reno. It is a heavy gun but not much different than many 10ga guns which I shoot. Probably a bit more "barrel" heavy and definitely not a fast swinging gun for teal or divers. If I get one, and that's a good possiblity, it'd be mostly for the novelty, although I would try it on sporting clays and ducks.

Bingo. Last year my wife got a Keltec PMR 30. I asked her why the hell she needed or even wanted it. Her response, 'it holds 30 rounds of 22mag...so why the hell not'. Turned out to be a fun little gun to shot, gets lots of looks at the range, but has no 'functional' place. I think if I can find one, its going to be bought.

I'm sure somebody will be on here in a couple months proclaiming it as the ultimate duck gun and testifying to how it'll run through all weather and all conditions and kill ducks at 80yds

I laugh at all duck hunters. Let's be honest... We're a different breed. We buy into some strange and sometimes ridiculous gadgets and contraptions. These oddities more often than not, hurt more than help. The above is a novel idea but in my particular case wouldn't be very practical. Don't get me wrong I've bought in to some strange things but I've learned during that process. Not saying this gun would be a foolish investment (as most firearms aren't) but I tend to live by the saying... "A fool and his money will soon depart".

I believe there is one for sale at H & H Gun Range here in OKC unless it was another manufacturer. Saw in in the sale display. Never seen a 3 barreled break action before in person. Not for sure it was made by the company you are taking about, but it was definitely a 3 barrel that looked just like that one.

It weighs as much as my SP-10's and even comes in a sporting model. Imagine having 3 chokes to choose from, Cyl, mod and Full all in one gun :biggrin: I like shotguns and like having a bunch of them but I will DEFINATELY pass on this one
