Introducing the Franchi Affinity Semi-auto Shotgun

Introducing the Franchi Affinity Semi-auto Shotgun

The brand new Franchi Affinity semi-automatic shotgun was introduced Tuesday at SHOT Show in Las Vegas. Available in both 12- and 20-gauge, the Affinity receiver is made of a lightweight, durable aluminum alloy that's strengthened with steel inserts that ensure a solid steel-to-steel lock-up. The 12-gauge Affinity weighs 6.4 pounds and the 20-gauge is just 5.6 pounds.

Because it is Inertia Driven, the Affinity has the feel of smaller gauge guns without compromising the punch expected of the actual gauge, due to the recoil spring surrounding the magazine tube located forward of the receiver, which keeps recoil in line with the shooter and helps reduce muzzle climb.

Venison Curry Recipe

Venison Curry Recipe

Hearty and flavorful, this curry is simple to make and requires just a few ingredients you can likely find at your local store.

Stuffed Elk Backstrap Recipe

Take your venison loin to a whole new level with this delicious reverse-seared stuffed elk backstrap. Smoking the backstrap on a Camp Chef Woodwind pellet grill first, then finishing it on a blazing-hot skillet or flattop, creates a perfectly cooked, medium-rare steak with a crispy, seared exterior. The filling of diced mushrooms and creamy Boursin cheese adds a whole new level of amazing flavors to an otherwise classic smoked venison loin.
