    The single trigger/hammer model would be a machine gun (one trigger press shoots more than one round). What happens if you have a slow primer in one chamber? First round fires, partial extraction starts, second round goes off...

    Seems like there's more bad than good in this design, unless you're looking for a "cool hollywood gun".

    I wonder what the retail price is. I thought a double stack PARA I once owned was too thick, I'd think that gun would be way too much to hold.

    My carry gun is a 14.45 Para. I do have big hands and it feels about right, but I think I could handle something a bit bigger. I'm gonna check it out.

    Phfffft. He can't even keep his support hand on the other.

    And, just exactly how is anybody gonna carry that thing? It oughta weigh about 4 lbs, and be about 2 1/4" wide. How many ribs ya gotta have removed to carry that thing in a shoulder holster?
