Why do I have the feeling that someone somewhere is laughing at me for even looking at this. The fact that they're essentially trying to "kickstart" it makes me feel like my intelligence is being insulted. It has to be a joke, right?

A company called Florida Discount Guns Inc. have developed a concept pistol carbine conversion stock kit which would accommodates two separate pistols at the same time. The idea is that if one pistol jams or the magazine runs empty, there is a backup.
My thinking is that your pistol would BE less likely to "jam" if you didn't bolt a bunch of silly-ass horsecrap onto it. :rolleyes:

Oh, and BTW, this is not a new idea. Been around since about 1965:

Never had one, never wanted one....

I was always pissed that Marx or Mattel or Topper never came out with an 8/10 or 9/10 scale BAR. Now THAT could have made me King Badass of the Neighborhood Hill....:twisted:

(Close as I could get was the Marx M14.)

Apparantly you were more "badass" than I....I just thought that gun was fun...had everything except a kitchen sink.
The plastic Thompson with a spring loaded "shooting mechanism" actually made a lot more sense.
Plus I had a metal P-08 Luger that actually really looked the real thing. That was cool. Didn't go to well with the Thompson though ....:rolleyes:

Why not? All you needed was a tanker helmet and leather jacket.

The logical conclusion of "Magazine Limit" laws is people going around like Renaissance Italians with about 6 to 10 wheellock pistols at any one time! ;)

DavidE,

MG Joseph Wheeler, late of the Confederate State's Cavalry, carried a PAIR of 1860 Army Model .44 revolvers on his saddle, a PAIR of 1851 Colt Army Models in .36caliber and a Colt's Pocket Police in his sash.
(MG Wheeler, during the SA War, told COL Theodore Roosevelt that, "Only a damn-fool Yankee would carry a sword, when he could for the same weight carry another brace of 1851 Colt's".)
OR
everyone could start carrying a PAIR of handguns as our RANGERS all do.
(MOST of our Rangers carry a PAIR of Colt's Government Models in .45ACP.)

Trust the EXPERTS in"gunfighting" to do what will keep them alive.

note: MY G-G-Grandfather, the Partisan Ranger who rode with COL Quantrell during "The Late Unpleasantness", carried at least 3 Colt's 1851 revolvers during the WBTS. When he returned from the war, he gave each of his 3 younger brothers a .36caliber Colt's revolver.
(He carried the .44 Colt's Army, which he had "taken at Palmetto Springs", until his death in 1914. - My cousin Beverly inherited the Colt's Army from her grandfather & still has it.)

yours, sw

Lol, I'm not averse to a six-1911 load... if I can ever figure out appropriate load-bearing equipment, back and knee braces, and how to afford it all. (Up here in the Northwet, take street price in the rest of the country and add another 1/4 to 1/2...)

Whew! Any idea WHY the disparity in prices, Diamondback? Are there additional state taxes or something? Or just an overall higher cost of living?
