Double-barrel pistol reinvents the meaning of double tapping

Don't cry to us when the Mayan Apocalypse comes with a horde of brain-dead zombies because we'll just shake our heads at you for not stocking up on Arsenal Firearms' double barrel handgun that fires two bullets with every trigger pull.

More commonly referred to as the AF2011-AF Double Barrel Pistol or "Twenty Eleven" or "Second Century," the gun is special because it's the first semi-automatic pistol that fires two bullets at once. Its body is intrinsically that of a Colt 1911-A1 with twin .45 caliber barrels that can carry eight bullets in each.

In layman's terms, that means, it'll effectively kill zombies dead without requiring constant reloading. Two bullets to the head on one shot should keep a zombie down for good.

The stopping power of the AF2011-A1 is tremendous: 2 bullets for a total of 460 Grains weight impacting at 1 to 2 inches apart (depending on the distance of the target) will knock down a bull, while the whole 18 bullets, for a payload exceeding 4000 Grains, can be delivered to the target in about 3 seconds.

Made in Italy, Arsenal Firearms' new weapon of zombie destruction is said to be "very accurate and great fun" and even features interchangeable parts with legacy Colt 1911 parts.

As if all of that wasn't enough, the Second Century gun can also be ordered with either two independent triggers or two permanently joined ones — both tempting options.

Pricing isn't listed on Arsenal Firearms' site, but we're sure if you really wanted the guns, finding a way to procure them won't be hard.

Because we can, we're dubbing this gun the "zombie-killer's best friend."
