Are two lasers really necessary as shown in the picture at the link? Seems kind of dumb, especially since it will make the gun even wider and heavier.
Q: How can I reduce the amount of mail I receive from the NRA?

A: Email membership@nrahq.org or dial 800-NRA-3888 and request to be placed on the "Do Not Promote" list.

If a double tap is so important that you need to go to the trouble of developing such an abomination, you need to reconsider the caliber of your weapon.
If the price of collateral damage is high enough, you might be able to get paid to bring ammunition home with you

Negative, but there's no way it flies with ATF. I'm still holding out for a 3-barreled 1911.

The theory behind the Gilboa Snake is the importance of the double-tap. With one pull of the trigger, two bullets are fired an inch apart from each other, and hopefully, they will strike an inch apart from each other. Here are the full specifications:
Caliber: 5.56X45mm NATO
Weight without magazine: 9.41 pounds
Overall length (stock extended) 31.50 inches
Overall length (stock removed) 19.50 inches
Barrel length: two, 9.5 inches, chrome lined 1:7
Firing mode: Full auto or semi-auto available
It's my cars 50-150mph you gotta worry about!

So both barrels fire with 1 pull of the trigger for double taps on a single piston system. What is ATF going to classify it as? Doesn't that technically equal a machine gun since more than 1 bullet was fired with 1 pull of the trigger?

The question I have is what happens if there's a jam/malfunction in one barrel? It has one charging handle so you end up essentially having to clear out both barrels (or guns, whatever)

Reading comprehension, how does it work?
Never argue with an idiot. They will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

Before you judge someone, walk a mile in their shoes...
That way, when you do judge them, you will be a mile away, and they will have no shoes.

I'm sure the ATF will call it a machine gun. I think that's a leap but then they have no standards and just make shit up as they feel like it.
