Double-barrel pistol reinvents the meaning of double tapping
Don't cry to us when the Mayan Apocalypse comes with a horde of brain-dead zombies because we'll just shake our heads at you for not stocking up on Arsenal Firearms' double barrel handgun that fires two bullets with every trigger pull.
More commonly referred to as the AF2011-AF Double Barrel Pistol or "Twenty Eleven" or "Second Century," the gun is special because it's the first semi-automatic pistol that fires two bullets at once. Its body is intrinsically that of a Colt 1911-A1 with twin .45 caliber barrels that can carry eight bullets in each.
In layman's terms, that means, it'll effectively kill zombies dead without requiring constant reloading. Two bullets to the head on one shot should keep a zombie down for good.
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) will knock down a bull, while the whole 18 bullets, for a payload exceeding 4000 Grains, can be delivered to the target in about 3 seconds.
Made in Italy, Arsenal Firearms' new weapon of zombie destruction is said to be "very accurate and great fun" and even features interchangeable parts with legacy Colt 1911 parts.
As if all of that wasn't enough, the Second Century gun can also be ordered with either two independent triggers or two permanently joined ones both tempting options.
Pricing isn't listed on Arsenal Firearms' site, but we're sure if you really wanted the guns, finding a way to procure them won't be hard.
Because we can, we're dubbing this gun the "zombie-killer's best friend."

An answer to a question no one asked.
If it fires more than one bullet per pull of the trigger, it’s a NFA weapon.
The version with a single trigger can never be owned in the U.S. by civilians because it is classified as a full auto weapon by the ATF.
The double trigger version is legal, but if you don’t pull both triggers exactly at the same time, only one side will fire, and there may not be enough energy to cycle the double slide.
Also, with a double slide, you double your chances of having a malfunction, and double the problems clearing them.
You said I was boring. My gun has two barrels. That isnt boring
and it was very difficult to make.
"I've got two guns. One for each of you."
OK, I’m gonna call it: The 1911 just jumped the shark.
I remember a toy pistol my cousin gave me back in 1955. It was a double barrel cap pistol one barrel above the other. I never forgot how useful such a pistol could be.
I also remember a wooden “Thompson machine gun” a neighbor made for me back in 1950.
Not long after my dad bought me a double barrel crossbow toy pistol that could fire two arrows. That was 57 years ago.
Those were the happy times of my life. In 1956, our lives went to hell in a hand basket.
I can see Dirty Harry shooting one of these - “most powerful handgun in the world”. I know what you’re thinkin’...did he fire 18 shots or was it only 17? Do ya feel lucky, punk?
How does it escape NFA classification? Two triggers like a side-by-side?
Do some research.
One certainly can own a full auto weapon in the U.S..
Here is my daughter posing (the reason for no safety gear) with a full-auto Uzi she just finished firing.
