To me it seems like a solution in search of a problem. Probably Arnold Schwarzenegger will be on the short list to own one first.eye rolling smiley

Another novelty gun with no shooting value. Think .50AE Desert Eagle.

Marketing gimmick, made to create 'buzz' around the gun, and the company. and its working. Upon further reading, looks like you can get the triggers joined in the middle, but i cant imagine both guns firing at the same time would be legal.. Maybe still 1 trigger pull, 1 cartridge.. hrm..

Edit: I can weld together a couple .45 1911's.. Sale Price: $5000.00

I would think the value of a double would increase the amount of rounds you could deliver singularly. Who cares about sending 2 rounds downrange when one 250 grain XTP is suficient to knock down any agressor.

Silly Italians' ooops I are one.


Nope, I don't want one.

In my neighborhood, the mess it would create would be SATISFYING, that is, if the need should ever arise but that's the attitude you acquire when you lived in the hood long enough.

That's exactly the point. What I'd be aiming at would have no value.

Those last two comments of mine were kinda dark. Don't worry, I'm not about to twist off or anything. I just thought the firearm was cool in a "Dirty Harry" sort of way.

Walter I worked in the hood (deep in the trenches) long enough and I think that every round should be dedicated towards a specific target and not the innocents. These Gangstas shoot indiscriminately.

Frack this I'm outa the hood!

That's what I like the most about this "Corvair" forum: I can come here and read about the joy some people get over pondering murdering their neighbors. Nice. I hate to thinkg what they'd do if you disagreed with them on the early vs late debate.

They ain't neighbors if they come in uninvited.....at least that's how it is in my neck of the woods. Perhaps you have an open door policy where you live but I don't. Any knock on the door after dark means I'm packing on the other side. God help you if you manage to make it over the threshold unannounced.

Neat! But, even a .22 will stop a man. What would you be trying to stop with that ? A train?

and don't get me wrong..... I'm a supporter of the people right to bear arms.

You can put me on the list to buy one. Although living in CA even as a LEO I probably couldn't pick one up for I've reason or another. Even as a novelty it is still awesome!

Seen this on one of my gun sights but didn't check into it. I did see there are two triggers and wondered if You had to use one and then the other or could empty one side then the other if wanted?

Great, now it will be a race to add more barrels just like razors.

Now with 15 blades because 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 blades just won't cut it!

I can see why you'd need two hands to hold it up. With a full clip my Colt 1911 is heavy enough, thank you. I forget who, but many years ago someone made a pistol that also had a shotgun barrel. This thread reminds me of the George Carlin joke about living in a in a neighborhood that was so tough that the punks didn't use guns, they manually inserted the bullets!
