    It's for somebody.

    Definitely not me, though :barf:

    Well I am going to try and be objective so: My first comment is that it has NFA written all over it. One trigger pull=multiple rounds.

    It won't be ideal for IWB carry...

    I can't imagine it balancing or pointing naturally, but I think the idea is really neat and I think the gun is just plain cool. Instant doubletaps!

    If the two triggers function independently, it would not be title II.

    But but really because it has two separate triggers. It looks like it's two separate guns with separate guts inside. Sure the frames are welded together so it is only one gun. But if it has two triggers, each one for independently operating mechanisms how is that any different than a double triggered SXS shotgun?

    Because either trigger will operate the single hammer, and the gun has a single slide. There is no way to fire the barrels sequentially.

    just because you can build it, doesn't mean you should...

    Just plain ugly. In this tribute to the 1911 they took most of what is so good about them and destroyed it. Balance, feel, and beauty aren't even an afterthought.

    It finally answers the question of "which is better in .45acp hardball or hollow points"

    That's pretty cool.
    You can carry JHP's on one side and FMJ on the other.

    I love how everyone and their mom is poo-pooing what is basically a gunsmith's gee-whiz project. Have none of you ever just built something because you could?

    Lighten up

    I was impressed and if all I had was a pistol - that is the one I want in a real fight.

    Too bad he had to use gloves to shoot it.

    Guess an ankle rig model is out of the question.

    But imagine that your in a world of hurt and that is your 'backup' gun.

    Bet you would feel a bit confident.

    During the infamous "Miami Shootout" if an agent had that === he would have been VERY happy.

    I wonder how well the two barrels are regulated?

    Ohhh, the hammers are connected. Didn't notice that before.

    Yup, it's NFA.
