    Looks like a lot of effort to put into something that is obviously going to be a commercial flop. Just a gimmeck that will make it into a few movies as the bad guy's gun of choice.

    Those pistols are aleady on the market. Other than the "double barrel", you can get an equally rediciously looking GIGANTIC semi-auto by just buying a High Point ACP for $200, shooting it once, and realizing your better off throwing it at your assailant.

    How is this... thing... even legal? I thought that any weapon that fires more than one bullet per trigger pull is considered a machine gun.

    The ones I've seen have two triggers, but I think they have a single trigger version as well. As the slides are connected, it's not like you could fire one barrel at a time. The whole idea is just a ludicrous publicity stunt, but I'd be surprised if it doesn't show up in some video games or movies.

    Well, I guess you could, if you don't mind the cartridge in the unfired barrel being ejected every time. Frankly, anybody retarded enough to buy one of these things probably wouldn't mind.

    So. Dumb.
