While US turkey hunters carry pumps, semi-autos, and single shots more often, I share with many others an unlikely love of O/U’s for spring gobblers.
While cost prohibitive and most folks will likely never feel the need for a triple barreled O/U, they have their merits (as at least a conversation starter).
We love hickok45 plenty but his videos normally fall into the entertainment category but this video goes into a lot more detail than usual and is pretty informative.

The Rhino’s ergonomics are its most distinguished, yet unfavorable, feature. The Rhino’s biggest issues arise from the fact that its designer employed a trigger meant exclusively for single-action target shooting, not double-action combat shooting.
It’s a small expansion but a sure sign of the company’s success: Chiappa is planning to more than double their workforce in the U.S., going up from 14 American employees to a round 30.
Chiappa is working on a new polymer-framed version of the Rhino revolver for concealed-carry. The Poly-Lite maintains the same unique Rhino aesthetics and most importantly, six-o’clock barrel position.

With all the recent interest in takedown long guns like the Ruger 10/22 or the Chiappa Little Badger, it’s important to keep in focus that these rifles are nothing new: The AR7 has been around for over fifty years, looks almost identical to the newest survival rifle offerings and, unsurprisingly, is still going strong.
Chiappa hasn’t given up on the Rhino, and they’re developing new versions right now. But is that enough or has the novelty finally faded away?
