Premise is simple. What do you think are the best handguns to go akimbo with? Remember, function and practicality take a distant second to style and overall cool-factor. Post pictures of the guns if you can!

Remember, this is just a fun topic, don't take it too seriously!

My humble submission (Dlask Arms 1911 and 11P1):

I do not understand the question. Akimbo is a body positon with both hand on the hips.

So to work with both hands on the hips and integrate a gun?!?!

Don't understand.

What's Akimbo? A masterless samurai with an AK?

Anything's a handgun if you're strong enough!

Dual Wield P7M8s. Slide release is the grip. Just need to master reloading with both guns.

Ah, someone's remembering the practical aspect! Nice.

Holy Hollow-Point Intimidation, batman! :shock: That should be a poster for how to convince a rapist to change his mind, or something.

I've seen pictures of revolvers where you could see the hollowpoints in the cylinder throats, but I never thought of getting the light just right so you could see all the way down the barrel of an automatic like that. I guess the flash is *very* close to the optical axis on that camera. A compact or subcompact, I guess.

Oh, yeah, I think there's also a forum rule that says I must congratulate the model on good trigger discipline.

The new FNP-45, it has fully ambidextrous controls.

I agree with Parabellus. Walther or S&W P99 for ambidextrous magazine release and unique ergonomic shape. But I'd add laser lights just because.

I remember reading about a gun with the ejector on the left side, but my skill at Google is poor. I'd want one of those as a left-handed gun. Anyone remember?

A pair of gold 10" barrel Desert Eagles for bling. Held sideways of course. Wonder how big a dent they'll make in each other when they're fired at the same time.:confused:

And you can't forget the H&K USP Match 9mm. Those 2 big guns Lara Croft: Tomb Raider has on her thighs.:tt1:

Yes indeed. P99s can be ordered with ambi slide release as well.
The P38 and P5 series' eject to the left.

Olympus C-60 Digital Camera; flash ~5/8” off axis using timed release.
