Double Barrel Shotguns have the Double Barrel (Dub) Quality. This says that when you fire both barrels you double the ammunition's damage die (but not the attribute die), however it says nothing about Impact.

While the Combat Maneuver Double Tap specifically says that the Impact modifier is only applied once, there is no mention of Impact with Double Barrel Shotguns when firing both barrels.

Is there a rule for this? What is the feeling of others on this?

I don't think there is a hard and fast rule for this, but every other instance of multiple rounds being fired as a single action has only 1 instance of the impact modifier. I'd say this should follow suit. They more than likely forget the line on this one instance.

Edit: just went look to double check myself. This is also the only instance of firing multiple rounds as an action not in the actions in combat section of the book.all of the actions have single impact modifier except head shot, which make sense as a single well aimed round optimizes the bullet's effectiveness.

As its a 'special ability' of the weapon it looks like you can also combine both.

Double barrel shotgun w/ Heavy Shells
Single Shot (Complex)
+Headshot (+Simple)
+Dub (weapon Quality).

Attack: Avoidance -6 (Pr)
Damage: 2d10+6 (Qu) {Impact +12}
