Gunmaker invents chilling double-barrel handgun
8 hrs ago
The Arsenal Firearms AF2011-A1 Double Barrel Pistol is a unique .45 caliber handgun capable of holding 16 rounds of ammunition in its duplex, single-columns magazine as seen on gizmodo’s website. ( © gizmodo / http://gizmo.do/xciAiQ" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; )

How convenient! Someone has finally invented a weapon that combines the killing power of a double-barreled shotgun with the portability of a handgun. After a decade of development, Arsenal Firearms is turning out a double-barreled .45 caliber, semi-automatic handgun that allows you to shoot two bullets at the same time, Gizmodo reports. The new gun, which can be ordered with one trigger or two, can hit a target the size of an orange 15 yards away and has the power to knock down a bull. As the James Bond-style villain breathlessly says in the over-the-top demo video, "That's performance."


This is a terrible write up for a firearm.. MSN should be embarrassed...

very interesting! might have to look into one of these :)....what happens though when 1 round is a little hotter than the other? i am not speaking of different configurations of ammo, but 2 rounds from the same box, some are a little hotter than the others. in a single slide it wouldnt make any difference really, but when the slide is for 2 rounds, could this cause a slight problem? nonetheless that thing really is pretty neat. a bit too big to CCW for me, but there is always a need for range toys ;)

I have to admit, I kinda like it. Don't know if I would every own one, but I like it.

I'll be honest. I want one. There are a lot of other things I'd get first. But I want one.

It would be fun to tinker with and shoot. But it's not practical so that's about as far as its utility goes.

Yep, purely a range gun and conversation piece I would think.

I don't think that gun is legal in this country. Wouldn't the ATF classify a gun that shoots more than one bullet at a time a machine gun?

Nope one bullet per pull of the trigger. That gun has 2 triggers.

Says it can be ordered with one trigger or two. Also, there's only one slide so if you only pull one trigger does it just eject the other barrel's cartridge?

Probably wouldn't even cycle just firing one, but can probably be made legal to buy that way, now I just need to find a double silencer to mount, ah yes this will for sure be my new carry gun!

Ok, I get it.... But i would prefer a 454 casull revolver.... If you consider two barrels, two slides, two mags, one finger... and double the problems of user and manufacturer... Shot placement/Accuracy means more to me than attempting to hit a bullet with a smaller bullet whilst wearing a blindfold, riding a horse.

I completely understand if some of you don't understand what I am saying... So don't ask....

the more i think about it, how hard is it going to be to pull both triggers that appear to not be RIGHT on top of each other at the exact same time? its not like an old DB shottie where you can fire 1 and then the other or both. 1 slide i would assume means only pull one and the other round just gets ejected and wasted?

and i also would prefer a 454 casull revolver, mines being delivered saturday actually :)

I just can't take that guy in the video serious. I'd have more respect for the company if they used the sham wow guy to pitch that crap.

I had someone come in the shop today asking about when we're getting them and how much.

with it having a single hammer, would you need to use both triggers?
