    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."

    I dont see this selling to well.

    Already been posted on this forum. Think it is a really useless gun, each to his/her own.

    The .45ACP is a personal defense weapon, it isn't a "stopper" and having something that bulky just doesn't work for me. More bulk than a .500 S&W Mag and even firing twice, a fraction of the power, not that I would ever carry either of my .500s as a CCW firearm.

    This is truly an answer to a question that didn't need to be asked. Don :yawn:

    The shooter is gonna need REALLY big hands to fire that thing.

    As DonD said, an answer desperately in search of a question.

    You will not be able to buy it in the US as it fires more than a single shot with a single pull of the trigger. That makes it a machine gun in the eyes of the ATF. So, it cannot be imported or sold to us peons.

    You could get the one with 2 triggers.

    One less round than a FN .45 and its 2 pounds heavier and probably 2x the price seems like a good plan.

    I'm starting to think the whole thing might be a scam to generate web clicks. Think of how many gun forums this has been posted on in the last few days, and when you consider that you couldn't buy it anyway...

    That's not the point of it. The fact that it's so absurd is what makes it cool.

    Yes I know thanks for the hint capt. obvious.
    I even emailed it to a friend who loves crap like this.
    But if you watch the video they are not playing it like a novelty they are playing it like its a bad ass killing machine.

    If they want to sell it, that's how they need to present it. :wavey:

    If Block can have R Lee Ermey as their paid spokesman, this co. should have Vince the "sham-wow" guy. Only then will I be truly "chilled".
