    I think he meant to go shoot it, when you asked what to do with it. BTW: The $3500 price is New Zealand Dollars. In US Dollars, it's more like $2500. Still a good deal, sounds like he didn't know what he had or just really needed the money and you got it for a pretty good bargain, I'm guessing a couple hundred bucks.
    Go out and shoot it. Have some fun with it. I have read reviews on these and hear they are very reliable and very fun to shoot.

    Also that was the price in New Zealand as well. Also that's if it's that particular Breda. They have others as well, I found a UK site that sells them used
    http://www.emmacustomrifles.co.uk/catSHOTGUNS.htm

    They go for around 175-195 pounds which is around $275-300 US I think it might sale that high in new zealand due to their gun laws. You have to have a license to own or purchase any and then you have to get it approved by a police officer before ordering one or buying one. Also for semi-automatic shotguns, rifles, pistols, etc. You have to have a special reason for it, and then with some exceptions they can only be shot at police approved practice ranges. Kinda like a more restrictive Canada. So that could really affect the price because it's harder to get and rarer over there, could also be a more special model.

    Yes, that's what I meant :). Not many folks can shell out thousands of dollars for Italian shotguns. (They may build lousy battleships, but they make great firearms.) You've got a keeper, IMO.
