About 4 months ago, my son went to a few gun shops and handled a number of different shotguns, and settled on the Franchi Affinity 3 in 12 gauge. Well...he's now saved enough money, and there are none to be found in the model he wants (26" barrel in Max-5 camo).

However I did find a used Intensity 3.5 in the same camo and barrel length as the Affinity 3 that he wanted for a good deal. From what I can find, it sounds like they are VERY similar except for the Intensity can shoot 3.5" shells.

He has no use for shooting 3.5" shells (doesn't waterfowl/goose hunt). Does having a gun chambered in 3.5" offer any DISadvantage? Any reason to NOT get a 3.5 if he'll never shoot 3.5" shells (i.e. will the 3.5 not cycle 2.75" shells as well)?

Thanks for your help.

Well...he decided to take the plunge on the Intensity 3.5 today. Brought it home, and shot about 50 clay pigeons. Not a single FTF with target loads, and the gun fits him just right...or so I suppose since he went like 45/50 his first time shooting it. He's one excited boy and we're looking forward to getting it out into the field.
