Spending as little as possible on a home-defense shotgun that passes years under the bed keeping the dust bunnies company isn’t a bad idea—a home-defense weapon essentially needs to be there when you need it and deliver lethal force with reliability. The Turkish-made 12 gauge pump-action shotgun that author Jay Langston recently tested does just that. The SARPASP has an 18.5-inch, drilled, steel barrel with a thorough hone job. The chamber accepts both 2¾- and 3-inch Mag. Of range testing, the author reports, “I burned up a wide assortment of field loads to ascertain reliability. I went through all 105 rounds without a malfunction.” To find out what kind of mayhem this $369 pump action delivered at 10 and 25 yards, check out the 2014 issue of The Complete Book Of Guns, available on newsstands and digitally on July 9, 2013.
