Shooting The Chiappa Triple Threat

    I had the opportunity to shoot the the Chippia Triple Threat at SHOT Show’s Media Day. Many people want to know what it feels like to shoot. My first impression picking it up (with butt stock removed, see above) was “This must be what a medieval mace feels like”. It is heavy and solid and feels a lot more substantial that a double barred shotgun. It was immediately obvious that if you missed your target after emptying all three chambers, the gun itself would make a formidable weapon.

    It felt like any double barrel shotgun when shooting, albeit a forward heavy double barrel. The weight probably helped tame the recoil but I did not notice. Firing from the hip it took me all three shots to get a solid hit on the target. I was shooting with Chris Cheng who did a lot better from the hip, hitting the target all three times.

    The barrels are 18.5″ long and are compatible with rem-chokes, this particular gun had some type of breaching chokes installed.
