Double-Barrel .45

I tend to agree that this is purely a novelty thing- I'm torn between thinking it's the most ridiculous thing that I have ever seen and thinking that it would be kind of cool to run a few magazines through it.

I also keep thinking of the saying "Just because you can doesn't mean that you should." I don't see much of a practical purpose beyond bragging rights. Of course, I don't claim to be an expert.

Pretty dumb. Especially with dual triggers. I'd be better off with a timely mag change. Hell, you'd be safer I'll bet with a real .45 sporting a damn C Mag, if there's such a thing.

If there were ever a gun looking for a movie to star in, it would have to be this one....

That will be one of those novelty items that someone buys for the sake of saying they have one.

It's much like my brother-in-law when he purchased a S&W 500. I asked him what he was going to do with that and he said, "Nothing, but it's sure nice to look at" as he put it back under his car seat.

A movie star double fisting the double 45s would need to be 1/4 as accurate right?

Just tape two 1911's together or go with three or four. Five would be a little crazy.

A gun for the spray and pray crowd. Too bulky, too expensive, too much.

A quick double tap from someone who knows what they're doing with a standard .45 can achieve the same stopping power. It's not the quantity of lead downrange as much as it is the quality of the shooter.

That makes this just a gimmick gun. Great for the table in the man cave to show off but not much else as far as utility goes.

Why, you don't think a pistol can stop somebody?

Trick question, accuracy would be determined by the script.

Brings new meaning to the term "Double Tap"

A project looking for a purpose.
I did see something like this in the movie Green Hornet. The bad guy wanted to look badder.

That thing is a gadget geeks wet dream. Although he'd probably limp wrist it and cause a stoppage.

Looks like someone had the same idea for an AR.
