    Might be a little hard to get extra mags for that beast. Nice collector item for the 1911 lover. Buy the way, I have put 31 rounds of 9mm down range in IDPA in 40 seconds with two mag changes and no points down (no misses). Doing it in 5 seconds would be a neat trick.

    Not sure I could find a holster for it.

    My first thought is that my range day costs would double for the same amount of shooting time.

    I'd like to try it, but it definitely falls solely in the novelty/collector category, IMO.

    Practical? No, but then how practical is the Desert Eagle? Looks like fun, if you've got the money.

    I could definitely see this in the next John Woo flick...

    I'm surprised Red Jacket isn't making it. It seems like a perfect project for Son's Of Guns. It would need a flare launcher for them to consider it though.

    Well the next step is to suppress it!

    The Slide is one piece....It will not function independently! (Or should not function independently....:confused:)

    No Matter how they set up the sear group....slide is one piece!

    I wonder what the circumference of that grip is?

    Looks like it would feel like gripping a baseball with a couple of barrels sticking outa it.

    What happens if you get a hangfire in one barrel?

    I think this is one of those crazy concepts that if extensively tested, would be found wanting.

    I think I'll pass on this one. I'll wait for the quad barrel 1911. ;)

    I want a bioengineered 1911 that talks.

    I think it's kinda funny that they are taking a serious, real world approach to selling it. No one is going to use one of these for defense, sell it as a gimmick and a range toy.

    It also looks as though you need both hands in order to shoot it. That is because it looks as though you have to pull both triggers at once and it takes two fingers to do that.

    If it had two independant slides, two hammers, and the barrels fired sequentially I could get into it. That would be kind of cool. But this sounds like something Kel Tech should be designing from scratch, not something a 1911 should be turned into.

    Maybe PARA could double stack it and make it a 30 round 1911!!!!!!

    If you weld two motorcycles together it does not become a car, or a good idea. If you weld two 1911's together is it now a 3822? I'll save my money for something else.

    Also, with one front sight, isn't this thing going to be pretty inaccurate?

    Will this produce two idiot marks?

    The term "idot mark" could now be applied to anyone who actually buys one of these. That's a little harsh I know, but it's funny. I'm just joking for anyone who wants one of these. Don't be insulted.

    Just when you thought Mossberg really jumped the shark, out of no where comes this crazy contraption. Being that the hammer(s?) are welded together, I think if you only pulled one trigger then the other trigger would hold the dual hammer(s?) in place.

    I'd still take this over a Judge/Governor or Mossberg Chainsaw.

    Hell Boy should upgrade to this in the next movie. If it was <$500 Id buy one for giggles.

    I am pretty sure it would be a machinegun under the NFA because one pull of the trigger (doesn't matter which trigger) will fire two shots.

    But the legal definition aside, it is really impossible to fire two shots at the same time; due to the primer speed, powder burn speed, etc., one of those two bullets will always be first. And that brings up questions about internal stresses in the gun plus torque in recoil and other interesting thoughts.

    I doubt that the inventor is serious, but if he is, and really hopes for orders to come pouring in, I suggest he not give up his day job.

    Reminds me of the concept cars you see at auto shows. You know it's impractical. You know it's not street legal, and there's no way it ever would be. You know it's just an engineering and styling exercise, a way for the maker to show off. You know you'll never own one. You're not even sure if it would really work. But it's still kinda cool.

    All I could think about when I saw it was, "Are we sure it wasn't built by RedJacket?"
