So, last night I was skimming through some of my NRA convention pictures, looking for a Friday Gun Pr0n pic (taking submissions! Honest! Your gun could be famous on the internet! *g*), and I came across this little number that I'd managed to forget so far out of defense of my wallet:
It's a Chiappa 1887 "Standard" model, a pistol-gripped version of their reproduction of the Winchester model 1887 lever action shotgun. They had this model and the T-Series next to each other at the convention, and, being a traditionalist, the wood-stocked version caught my attention.
Now, given that it's a standard 18.5" barrel, there's no NFA issues with this - no different than, say, the Mossberg 500 Cruiser or Persuader models. Since it's a lever action there aren't even any Assault Weapons Ban issues - this is one I could bring home with no difficulties whatsoever (Note to Chiappa - I do reviews...). Since I barely get a chance to shoot my home defense shotgun more than once a year, though, this is relegated to the "lottery" list.
Would be kinda need to try this next to libertyman's 14" Mossie 590...
That is all.
