Shotgun of the Year Standard Manufacturing DP-12 Capacity—both what’s in the gun and how quickly it can be reloaded—has always been the bane of the shotgun

as a defensive arm. With a typical pump-action shotgun, anywhere from 5 to 9 rounds are commonly available,

and the latter only in extended-tube, defensive-oriented variants. Reloading a shotgun is a time-consuming,

precise feat that requires a significant amount of practice to master, leading some to consider other forms of protection.

With the 14-round-capacity Standard Manufacturing DP-12, though, reloading becomes much less of a concern.

The unique combination of a double barrel—you know you’ve got two shots for certain—coupled with the generous

mag-tube capacity (plus two more in the chambers) in a slick, pump-action platform means the DP-12 should be able to

handle any threat, without needing that pesky reload.

“The DP-12 works reliably, provides a considerable amount of firepower and (in the words of a co-worker) looks like it means business.”  —Jay Grazio, Associate Editor
