    I stumbled on a BATF report that listed shotgun imports by country and was suprised to see Brazil so high on the list. Italy was first with 210,000 shotguns imported into the U.S. This makes since. So does Turkey with 180,000 but what throws me off is Brazil being third on the list with 151,000. What manufacturer makes there guns in Brazil?

    Where was Japan on that list? Thinking of Browning, SKB, Daly, etc, one would think that Japan would be first.

    Mixer, that's the funny thing. Japan's number is listed at 5,500. Now browning also makes their semi-autos in Portugal and that number is listed at 7,600. But that still doesn't add up. 13,100 guns for Browning? I don't think so. It should be 5X times that.

    Japanese mfg. typically copies other well established products, maybe in this case they went too far and includes "Made in Italy" markings on shotguns. LOL
