The American Derringer Co. makes a model like that. I think you can get the stack barrel with a 410 rd on top and a 45 Colt round on the bottom. But remember, it is something to be used at contact range. Not much accuracy beyond say three feet. Pretty close! Also remember how much it will kick, especially with the Colt 45 load, and it has damn tiny grips by necessity. For it's rather small size, it will also be fairly heavy. I considered one of these myself (after seeing the same movie, lol) but took into account what I just mentioned to you, and decided not to specialize that much. Also remember it will be slow to reload and what happens if you have to shoot more than two rounds?

I'd like to know the Hatch ratings on the various prefrangible rounds such as the GLASER series or the MagSafe rounds, which I carry in my Glock (M27) 40 and M1911 series 45's. I also have them for my Beretta M92 9mm.

Glaser rounds are not good for self defense purposes. Glaser rounds expand very quickly and cause shallow wounds. Shallow wounds equal no vital organ damage. No vital organ damage equals you can guess.

Get the heaviest round possible in grains that are hollowpoints for all your handguns. I would not however take over 135 grain bullets for your 9 x 19 handgun. The 135 grain are more effective than the 147 grain. Navy SEALs were using 147 grain in sound suppressed submachine guns for less sound signature. 135 grain have more powder behind the round I believe than the 147 grain.
