Awkwardly balanced, WIDE grip, two triggers, I'll pass. A+ for creativity though.

Well that certainly would draw some interest at most any backyard BBQ that's for sure! Maybe they could enter into some sort of joint advertising arrangement with Burger King and the "Whopper".

Definitely would be a handful (as in a two-handed proposition), for me. I don't know if I could actually reach both triggers, and still maintain a proper grip on the gun. There is also the question that with the optional single trigger could this be classified as a full-auto weapon because there is more than one shot with each pull of the trigger.

And while it's also chambered in one of my favorite calibers (.38 Super), I would probably opt for something more practical like an STI Edge instead. More rounds in a single magazine and with a somewhat less obtrusive (and much more svelte), single slide design.

It is so you can shoot with your right hand, and then switch to the left and keep firing while you reload the right side.
When shooting on the right, reload the left side. It is a real hot potato to keep running at full operation.

I reminds me of those old Doublemint gum commercials.

Looks rather well built - made in Italy, but it screams "Let's see. What new thing can we sell to rich Americans?"

Back when they first came out, there was a lot of buzz on the gun forums about them and even videos posted showing them being shot. While they might be something neat for that guy who has everything, it's hard for me to see a practical application........other than a BBQ gun.

Well, not really a BBQ gun unless that definition has changed to overpriced, impractical, and not good for much but a novelty.

Always been my definition of a BBQ gun. Always thought that's what they were all about....show. You wouldn't take them hunting, throw them in the glove box of the truck or even take them to the range regularly. They ain't meant for that....even according to the link you provided.

A BBQ gun is what you wear to barbeques, baby christenings, formal balls, and any other place where a fancy jacket or outfit would be worn.


....what I don't understand, since this is generally thought of as a Texas thing, how can one go out in public and display their BBQ gun when open carry is not legal? A BBQ may or may not be on private property, but most christenings and formal balls are not held in private residences anymore. Or does one wear it and their fancy leather concealed? Doesn't that kinda defeat the whole purpose? Or is it like clean underwear and you do it so you look good if you have to go to the emergency room? Don't get me wrong, I ain't dishin' 'em, just tryin' to understand them. But then I can't comprehend not being able to open carry either.

It would make a good movie prop gun or something for the rich guy who has everything. You would need gorilla sized hands and a pretty long index finger to actually shoot the thing. A creative idea though and for someone to actually follow through from concept to marketplace is commendable.

Strictly a conversation piece in my opinion.

I still don't see how it works. Wouldn't the two shots have to be within a millisecond of each other? There is no way you could get two hammers to drop and fire two primers that close together. If one is just a bit slow, the slide is opening just as the other barrel fires, a situation that sounds a bit dicey to me. If one barrel fires and the other doesn't, then the unfired round is ejected, isn't it?

I know all my questions could be answered and my doubts resolved just by buying one. I am not going to.

Well maybe if I win the Powerball lottery and get bored with all my corvettes, Mercedes, and Jags then I'll get one.

But for now I'll drive my Toyota and pack a Glock.

The CSA tried out a double barrel cannon that was supposed to sweep the Yankees from the field. Each barrel fired a ball and the balls were linked by a chain. The idea was that the two balls would go down range in parallel and the chain would cut a swath through the enemy.

Well, no. When they got both barrels to fire at all close together, the balls and chain took off like a big whirligig and in one test came back like a boomerang and almost beheaded the gunners. End of great idea.

Two mags, two triggers, two chambers, double the chances of some sort of failure.

Probably referring to people that can open carry here, like law enforcement. Makes me think of the the people in law enforcement that wear suits for their job.

Hum... now if it just took two side by side 7 round mags, it would be NY compliant. Maybe those folks have hope yet.

When I'm at a BBQ, I consume adult beverages. That means my guns are locked in a steel cabinet.

The guy shooting it does a good job of making it look fun. Brass flying left and right.

Yeah, I thought that was rather entertaining, too.

I fixed the wording for 'em-

The stopping power of the AF2011-A1 is tremendous: 2 bullets for a total of 460 Grains weight impacting at 1 to 2 inches apart (depending on the distance of the target) that will violate the immutable laws of physics themselves, while the whole 18 bullets, for a payload exceeding 4000 Grains, can be delivered everywhere but into the target in about 3 seconds.

:evil:
