Yeah, we’re gonna need one of these. Maybe two. Say what you want about a double barrel, it will never be as cool as a triple barrel (which itself is only 75% as awesome as a quadruple barrel).
This is the Chiappa Triple Threat.
Many of you may be familiar with the Chiappa Rhino, but what do you know about the manufacturer?
Here’s their background:
Chiappa Firearm Company is was started by Ezechiele Chiappa. To keep this simple, thankfully, he preferred going by Oscar, so that is how we will refer to him from now on. In the early 1950s Oscar started in his career with Tanfoglio as a production line worker. But within four years at the ripe old age of 22 he was promoted to manager of all production which at that time was revolvers for the most part.
In 1958 the owner of Tanfoglio became ill and abruptly passed away and his wife decided to sell the company. As can happen with such things after the sale Oscar was removed from his management position so he decide to resign and move on. However, his life-long love of firearms and their use in sporting activities along with his machining expertise kept him in the industry and he formed his own company to do subcontract work for other companies. Eventually this new business lead to more production and at 29 Oscar founded his own company, Armi Sport.
