Franchi Affinity 12 Gauge (Early Birthday Present)

My son Ryan was ready to move up from his 20 gauge to a 12.

So even though his birthday is months away he got an early, early birthday present.

I looked around and was hoping to get a Franchi Affinity Compact 12G, but it was going to be anywhere from 2 weeks to 6 months to get one. The dealer had no idea where the shipment was, it could have been on a dock in Europe, or a mile from its U.S. port destination.

So I bit the bullet and got him a file size 12.  The Franchi Affinity is light, and it feels even lighter than its 5.9 lbs when its in your hands. And cleaning it is a breeze since it is an inertia driven gun. Its my first non gas semi, and I have to say I’m not sure I’ll ever go back. Not having to scrub gas ports and the mag well of burnt carbon is a relief!

My son picked the gun up and was hitting clays in his first few shots.

Let me know if you have any questions about the Franchi Affinity in the comments.

Saturday Movie – Ultraviolet (2006)

If you like guns, swords, action, and a beautiful heroine, then Ultraviolet is the movie for you.

Ultraviolet tells the story of a hemophage (really just the future vampire race) who sets out to rob what she thinks is a weapon from the humans whom have been trying to wipe out the hemophage race.

After Violet Song Jat Shariff (Jovovich) steals the weapon she opens the package to find its actually a young boy, Six, inside, and he may have the cure for the hemophages. As she fights to save them both she realizes that everything isn’t quite what it seems.
