As we’ve previously mentioned, there were a few releases at SHOT Show 2019 that drew some attention, like the KelTec CP33. Another impressive release we found is the Charles Daly Honcho 12-gauge.

What’s so special about another 12-gauge? Well, this one is a triple-barrel shotgun with a nice compact overall length. You’re probably thinking, “So what? Triple barrels are nothing new.”

It’s true. Hell, Charles Daly already has three other triple-barrel shotguns in its lineup. The Triple Crown and Triple Magnum both have a 28-inch barrel and a 45-inch overall length; both normal lengths for such shotguns. Then there’s the smaller Triple Threat, with an 18.5-inch barrel and 35-inch overall length; much more compact than its brethren.

Then we come to the Charles Daly Honcho Triple Barrel. Again, why is this one so special? How about an 18.5-inch barrel and a 27-inch overall length? With no chokes, the Honcho has “home defense” written all over it.

Along with the 12-gauge version, Charles Daly also announced a .410 model. Both have an MSRP of $1,299. For more information, please visit
