I’m not sure why Franchi is releasing the Affinity shotgun in Realtree AP and Realtree MAX-4. If you want to grab your shotty, make like a tree and leaf, why not buy the Predator CAMO? Throw that inertia-driven bad boy into the woods and your friends will have the devil’s own time finding it. (Closed woods, professional idiots.) That said, I have a real affinity for the Affinity and the MAX-4 pattern’s bio-diversity [above] tickles my fancy. According to realtree.com, the new camo design features “cattails, mullet, milo, cornstalks, sunflowers, oak and maple leaves, cedar and oak limbs, and a variety of other plant life. The pattern offers maximum effectiveness as waterfowl camo in any open terrain—without geographical limitations.” Save LA’s parks, where basic black is still de rigeur. FYI.
