Rhodesian A5 Shotgun Pictures on Range

A few months back, I posted some videos of us testing a Rhodesian A5 shotgun. Turns out, I was derelict in my duties and I did not post the still photos. As you can see in these pictures, the A5 successfully digested Winchester 12 gauge bulk pack target loads. And for those asking, this shotgun’s capacity is 8+1. VERY formidable when you consider this model came out in the 1970’s! The Benelli pictured belonged to the volunteer who helped me shoot some video. His Benelli was quite the nice gun. It was interesting to shoot them side by side for comparison.

    When I was the Regional Security Manager for the Middle East for a DoD Iraq reconstruction contractor, I had a lot of South African and former Rhodesian military types working for me. One had actually been a Brigadier General. Many had lost relatives and friends in the change-over from Rhodesia to Zimbabwe, but the one thing they all had in common was a no BS approach to life,. This shotgun is the same . . . no BS.

    • Freeze has a former Rhodie trend who now lives in New Zealand. It’s my understanding, the Mugabe government still would like to get their hands on them. It’s always of interest to me that the Left doesn’t even want to talk about Rhodesia / Zimbabwe and what happened after “social justice”.
