I’ve always liked the way a Perazzi moves, I pick one up and it feels right.

Put a son through university and a daughter through med school so getting one wasn’t in the budget for a while.

Shot a 391 and then a DT-10, added a carrier barrel and set of sub gage tubes.

Almost a year ago I decided to buy myself a Perazzi for my 60th birthday. Spoke with my wife and planned to vacation in Italy for the made to measure experience while on vacation. Placed the order in early January. Then COVID happened, the factory shut down for a while. Soon it became apparent I wouldn’t be going to the factory. Went to a recommended fitter and got measurements to send for wood.

Gun arrived at the dealer in late September, sent carrier barrel to Briley and waited for that. Early November got word that everything was ready for shipment to me. Sent to my local FFL and the NICS check came back HOLD. COVID strikes again. 7 days later the gun was finally in my hands

High Tech Sporting, 32” barrels, 1.6Kg with 0.016 and 0.024 fixed chokes, nice piece of SC2 wood.

Took it for maiden voyage last weekend and broke 92. I think me and this gun are gonna get along nicely.

I bought the gun from Cole Gunsmithing. I have a long relationship with Rich Cole and he has always treated me the best.

I used Keith Lupton for the fitting, he was highly recommend by Rich Cole and Al Kondak.
