How do you improve on this iconic ideal of a shotgun? You add another barrel. There are three versions of this innovative triple gun—one for sportsmen, the Triple Crown, with three 28-inch barrels, each with a threaded choke tube, a center vent rib and deluxe walnut stock; and two self-defense Chiappa models, the full-stock Triple Threat with a trio of 18.5-inch barrels, and the Triple Threat two-piece stock variation, which easily converts into a pistol-gripped tactical configuration. While three is better than two in a home-defense scenario, for sportsman, the idea of a third barrel might take a little getting used to.
