How convenient! Someone has finally invented a weapon that combines the killing power of a double-barreled shotgun with the portability of a handgun.

Instead of chilling, I say cool. I just used the actual title....
Interesting that MSN is promoting this...I might have guessed that they would be against exercising second amendment rights with the tools of your choosing.
I fail to see how a double barrel 45 is like a double barrel shotgun. Besides, I don’t see an advantage to firing two 45s at the same time.
Any complaint about a 45 might be related to using it in an apartment building. Able to go through walls, it could injure a neighbor by accident.
What I’d like to see is a semi-automatic twenty gage shotgun. It would have the stopping power needed, but wouldn’t be as likely to cause problems for the neighbors.
Clearly a collector’s piece with no practical application. I wonder how many outtakes it took to get through 2 magazines without jamming.
There’s all kinds of torque forces at work on this .45/.45 or .90. Not to mention keeping everything perfectly in sync.
Chilling = Cool
Cool = Chilling
I would have reported that “someone has invented a weapon that doubles the superb defensive stopping power of the classic 1911 .45 semi-automatic Colt pistol in a manageable handgun design!” But then again, I’m not a gun-hating liberal weenie from New York.
My Taurus Judge pistol is pretty devastating. Double the fire power? Sign me up!
Got one. That will be my zombie goto sling tool when society collapses.
Don't they consider anything that fires more than one round with a single pull of a trigger to be a Class III firearm, and subject to NFA '34?
New? Hardly....LeMat did it during the Civil War.....
Ah, so there is something out there. Much appreciated. I’ll try to find it.
Cool. It’s new to me though.
Oh, darn. I checked by searching for handgun...
I think you are right and it will be classified as a new machine gun and it will not be imported into the USA.
KAOS developed a Stereophonic Twin Barreled 38 Revolver to use against CONTROL agents. Fortunately for CONTROL, when the trigger was pulled, the radio turned on.
