I can't say anything about an Affinity, but I can about Franchi in general. I own two semi auto shotguns, a 20 and a 12, both Franchi's that were bought back in the 70s. Love those guns. One of the most well made semis out there in my opinion. Dead reliable and handle very well

Jody Johnson will become famous soon enough
A-5, 1100, Benelli. Used to shoot Rem 11-48's in various gauges. Always functioned well and handle like an 870 except that you don't have to "pump" th' thing. Generally, a heckuva bargain on the used market.

My dad has one (not the light model) but made in Belgium ... I have hunted deer with it and I love the gun. Gets a bit heavy after being on your arm all day in the field.

I bought an SKB, which is an Ithica made in Japan more or less, paid almost no money for it, and enjoy that thing more than anything. My buddies Browning A5 is also a treasure to shoot.

I used to use a couple Remington Model 11 riots guns for HD...they were Cleveland Police surplus.
Two years ago, I bought a Beretta 1201FP Detroit PD surplus. It's a kissing cousin to the Benelli M1S90 and uses the same inertial bolt. What a blast to shoot. In fact, I'm heading to the range today to shoot some buckshot.

Remington 1100 in 12GA - Former 3 Gun shotgun, now home defense
Weatherby SA-08 12 GA
Browning Auto-5 Light 20
Franchi 20 Ga

Weatherby semi-auto is one of my upland guns and has taken a fair share of pheasants (although it did totally miss a black pheasant at 20 yards). Fit is excellent and points very naturally.

Franchi is a youth model that my son has used very effectively on pheasants and chukars.

Like to add another Remington 1100 to the stable either in 20 or 28 gauge.
