The Triple Double Shotgun
You read right, this beast of a shotgun has 6 barrels and holds 48 rounds at a time. The ultimate zombie apocalypse weapon.
Triple double is usually a term thrown around in basketball. Not so much in shotgun lingo. Double barrel shotguns are awesome. But you know what they are not as awesome as? A triple double shotgun.
The guys from Demolition Ranch brings us one of the coolest and craziest guns you will ever see. Sure it is super heavy and quite uncomfortable and to be honest, not practical whats so ever. But that doesn’t matter because it is also ridiculously awesome.
If Walking Dead was a real thing, and we must go on fighting zombies to survive, you can bet this is what I would be packing. Surely you could eventually hit your mark after 48 rounds.
Yes, 48 rounds. Each tube holds seven shells plus one in the chamber, amounting to a 16-shot capacity in each gun. You do the math. Simply put, he mounted three DP 12’s together with a few bolts and nuts while synchronizing the pump actions together.
Quite genius and shockingly never done before, the triple double shotgun is pretty cool.
If you bring that to the range, you are guaranteed to turn some heads and have plenty of questions to follow.

[Demolition Ranch Intro]
[Host] “Welcome to Demolition Ranch! The Standard Manufacturing DP12 is a double-barrel, double-magazine too, pump-action shotgun. With every pump, it loads in two shells, and then you have two shots. Pretty awesome idea, and Rich and Ryan came down a while back, and we made a quad-rail shotgun, ‘cuz they hooked two Remington eight-seventies, one on each side of the thing. It didn’t work very well, but it was cool! What if we got two DP-12s and hooked them together? Or better yet, What if we got three?”
[Host] “So I own one DP-12. And I actually convinced Standard Manufacturing to send me two more on loan. And, my plan is, They have a hole right here, And I put new forends on ’em and I drilled right there. So I think I can rig them all together, with bolts and some nuts.”
Male: “Deez nuts. Ha!”

[Host] “And just like that– THE TRIPLE DOUBLE WAS BORN! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I’m really excited about this.”
[Host] “So the shotguns are hooked together, and the forends are hooked together, So when you pull back one, they all come back, and it should load six shells at once. And then you have six shots. And you can do it again! Hah. Let’s load it up.”
[Host] “This’ll be the first time I’ve hired this thing. I am a little bit nervous.”
[Host] “There we go. Ok. Gotta put a little more effort into it. I’m pumped! That was awesome.”
[Host] “I loaded this thing completely full, These guns by themselves hold seven in the tube, and one in the chamber. So each gun holds sixteen shells. So times three, we have forty-eight shells on tap here. Which is not light. We’re already having a problem with one of the bolts kinda bending. So try to hold it like this. Here we go.”
[Host (throughout shooting)] “Alright. This is the hardest part. Ugh. … Uh-oh. That means I didn’t rack it hard enough. Let’s try it again. … Hahah! … Oh my gosh. I’m getting really tired. … Aiming is possible. … Are we done yet? Almost. … That wasn’t very good… Hahaha. We have a few shells left, I’m really tired though. Oh gosh. Uh-oh, something’s wrong. That would be it. Oh god. I’m dyin’ here. That’s a bad idea. I do it that way they’re all gonna eject in my face. This is so heavy. … We out yet? Let’s see. Two more!”
[Host] “If I wasn’t sweaty before, I am now. I was before, also.”
[Host] “Whew. I’m dyin’. My shoulders are burning [laughter].”
[Host] “Show you guys what it looks like when they load in. It’s kinda cool. You ready? Watch right here. All six of ’em? Now they’re in the chambers.”
[Host] “Got a cool little red-dot on here– Holosun with an ACSS reticle, I’ll put a link to it in the description below. Very good price for what it is. This is, uh, a really cool gun! It’s VERY heavy, and very awkward. But it’s also very awesome. Awesome enough that I’m surprised no-one has invented it until today. Thanks for watching Demolition Ranch, Glad you’re here, and I’ll see you next time! Unless I kill myself with this thing.
[Host]: “Watch this” [ejects shells] “Haha!”
