Sooner or later somebody is going to ask for a holster for one.
Guess I'll be duct-taping 2 1911 mold guns together! :lol:

Nedly....methinks that you are just jealous that you didn't think of it FIRST! Perhaps this could be "outdone" by a "Dual Howdah" pistol by you? :lol:

My first reaction was "That HAS to be Photoshopped!"

I guess if it jams, you can just throw at a potential assailant!

No jealously JR, as I have done this very thing, although mine had one barrel pointing forward and one backward. Actually, it's up for sale, only fired once..... I mean, twice.... :shock:

Still not sure if it's real, but a little more than just Photoshopped if it's not.
Here's a link to their YouTube video. Apparently made in Italy?

Ned, NED!!!!! I've gotta have it. How's a trade for a Hi-point and my collection of the Bee Gee's on 8 track sound?

Just watched the YouTube and now I believe it's real. Hmmm. If it really is or goes into production I don't know how many they'll sell, but technically it's interesting and quite an accomplishment.

Jeff, I'll consider your offer.....

Certainly room enough for a DirecTV dish, for cable/internet and video downloads.

Exactly! You don't have to worry about concealing this bad boy... You can conceal stuff on it!

The brass kicking out both sides is pretty cool.

I would get one, but hell can't find a holster

This is going to end up in a movie at sometime, Stallone or Arnold packing one!!

It looks like it has 2 triggers so is that how they get around more than 1 round per pull of the trigger ? How much does it weigh ? I guess it's for the guy who already has everything

The two-shots-per-pull issue, maybe it's papered as a Class III item. In which case the obvious next thing to try is.....?

Barrels pointing fore and aft? Feeling a bit paranoid Ned?

As for the "monstrosity", I look at it like I look at custom rods. I appreciate the engineering and the craftsmanship, but they're just not for me.

It looks like it has two triggers, so isn't it just one pull per trigger?

I saw it at SHOT a few years ago but really got to take a look at it at the NRA Show in Indy. Whatever one thinks of it, it is extremely well executed:

Here's the awful part of having seen it-- AAaargh! I don't remember if it had a single, common trigger! And my pics don't show it. It kinda doesn't look like it, but it must-- otherwise firing only one side would, if it cycled fully, eject a live round from the other side.

From photo #1, it clearly has a trigger in-line with the magazine well of the left-side barrel/magazine set.

So that would indicate two triggers.

I also saw/handled it at SHOT when it appeared, and only have vague recollections of it, but for a different reason.

They only had one working model in the country at that time, no idea when they would have more, and no idea when I could get one to write up.

No point in pitching it to my Editors, then.

Re-watching the vid and re-reading the specs just now, the triggers are connected. Cool how the vid shows two bullets exiting within an inch of each other, same as they go through target backer-- on one another's tail and closely regulated (at whatever that distance was).

As an exercise in what can be done and for novelty value, I hereby petition you to do an article on it!

Love to, if and when they ever get a sample in-country that they can lend me.

(No way am I buying one, just to write it up.)

Was I subliminally influenced by revisiting this yesterday, when I got out the 1st Model Dragoon and decided to double-ball load it....? 28 grains of black powder, then a .442 ball, topped by a .457 ball and some Crisco. They impacted about 2" apart at 30'.
