ever heard of "fanning" a trigger? :-)

I'm working on inventing a double action cap and ball revolver (can legally be sent thru the mail to anyone) that offers 10 hits on target in .80 second. with one in each hand, you can be every bit as effective as anyone who's using a 380 Mac 11 submachinegun.

using 2 guns at once CAN be done, if you know how.

If it's not one thing, it's the other

Yah. TMK, you fan the hammer, not the trigger of the revolver. Your index finger of the dominant hand holds down the trigger, the other hand (the edge of the palm - next to the little finger) fans the hammer. Presumably you can improve accuracy with practice.

It was the fallback method for bad guys in cowboy TV adventures of my youth. They'd empty their 37 shot revolvers at the good guy who would be unscathed and then with one shot he'd "wing'em in the shoulder". Episode after episode.

These gun nuts are really wishing for those good-old-days.
