    Smith & Weston's .410 Double Trouble Autoloader New for 2011.......:woot::woot:
    Real Guns

    With Taurus, Magnum Research and Bond Arms working hard to keep up with rapidly growing concealed carry .410 shotshell revolver demand, it was only a matter of time before market savvy Smith & Weston weighed in with a signature product for 1911 type autoloader fans.

    Dubbed "Double Trouble" this unique autoloader holds eight rounds .45 Colt or 2½" or 3" .410 gauge, shot or slug ammo. The standard DT is supplied with smooth bore barrels and five interchangeable chokes. The DT may also be ordered with a rifled, or a smooth bore - rifled combination barrels.
    When asked about applications for this new burst of fire power, Warren Whippet, S&W's VP of Sales and Markup said, "We see this as a tactical weapon for those situations where you want to lay down some serious fire, then get the **** out of there. Sort of like carpet bombing with a handgun, but without the turbine engine noise, flight suits or a large carbon foot print. The DT is a very green weapons system. Yes, very green indeed".

    The DT is the first member of a family of products to be built on S&W's new large Y series autoloader frame. When asked about the "Y" designation, Patrician Pedelunker, S&W's VP of Product Names and Employee Parking Space Assignments told us, "We were eighteen hours into a marathon frame naming session. Several people had fallen asleep, one guy confessed to stealing Post-Its and we discovered a recent hire to the marketing department could speak only French... which probably explains why she kept blurting out "Où sont les toilettes?". We finally elected to name the frame based on the question everyone asked the moment they saw the prototype".

    The Double Trouble® design incorporates Simultaneous Double Fire® capability. According to G. Gas Rhonda, S&W's Director of Advanced Gas Port Logistical Engineering, "The selective single trigger can be set to fire both barrels or, alternatively, either top of bottom, or bottom and top barrels individually. With chambers loaded, hammers are positioned cocked and carried locked. In speaking with S&W personnel, there was the hint of a decocker version of the DT being released in the very near future.

    A Passive Aggressive Fired Cartridge Detection System® took a little getting use to as it doesn't display any obvious signs of status or condition. The system will eject a fired cartridge, or a misfiring cartridge, however, it also can silently and arbitrarily undermine the gun's cartridge extraction system and leave the cartridge in place... or pack up and take the kids and move in with its mother while the DT is at work... trying to make a living for its family. The important thing is that all of the gun's systems have learned to get along harmoniously... for the sake of the chil...parts.

    The new format doesn't make links pop very well - missed that. Either way I think it's funnier than h e double toothpicks. :)
