I got a Fausti "Waterfowl II" 3.5 inch. I like it a lot but honestly haven't shot it yet. It is really well put together, greener crossbolt locking mechanism, and nice engraving. Retail is about the same as the Fabarm but i think i got a really good deal. Im planning to shoot TSS loads out of the top barrel, which generally needs a more open choke. I got a Carlsons .680. The gun uses american arms style chokes which arent too hard to find. Ill report back on how it shoots this weekend

Cool; glad you were able to find one. I'm gonna guess the TSS loads will be incredible and can't wait to hear your results.

these shells are the real deal for lead shooters and are not near as picky on choke constriction for good killing patterns as hevi is

Walmart in Jefferson City, TN had a ton of them. I bought some 5's to use in my Turkey Thug shotgun. They do chatter the old teeth when you shoot them though! I've never felt a harder recoil.

Me too.

I think this may just be the best shooting lead loads ever made if the reports that I have seen are in fact correct.
