um, how do you pump it? :-)

Looks good, though 3 1/2 is generally more needed for skybustin geese imho, and don't see anyone doing that with an O/U cause they are too refined to blast birds that are'nt on aproach.

Agreed... it's a sexy beast... but my first thought was the same as Kolat's... 3.5" is a bit big for our ground-based feathery food sources. :D

i'm gonna be folding em up in the air man. yeah, it's pretty difficult to find an over/under in 3.5". actually, browning and beretta were the only companies i saw out there that were making them. i want to shoot some turkey as well with this thing. actually, i've got several other shotguns and bought this one in hopes of replacing them all. 3.5" isn't really needed. you can certainly go heavier load with 3" and do just fine, but most of your big time waterfowlers and turkey hunters shoot 3.5" mainly because of the increased amount of lead that it will throw out there. 95% of the time i'll probably stick to 3" but i didn't want to buy a new shotgun and then a couple years later envy everyone else and have to get another. i already have 3 shotguns so a fifth would be ridiculous. ha!!!

yeah, pretty much ever since highschool i've wanted one. all i've ever had was pumps. i've shot autos, side by sides and over/unders and just have really liked the over/unders. mainly because they are so much shorter making pick up and swing much faster for me.

oh, and you just get a good feeling when you crack them in half and drop a couple rounds in em. sorta like jacking a shell with a pump. just one of those things.
