I will baptize the Franchi 612 VS semi-auto this Monday on a Dove hunt. I am going with 8 guys from work to a farm at Mount Olive, NC. They cut the milage and corn this past Wednesday, this is 80 acres of milage and corn so by Monday noon it should be hot and heavy shooting. I will keep you guy's posted on how the gun performed on it's first hunt. Any of you guys going Dove Hunting?????
