Standard Manufacturing S333 Revolver

I saw one of these for sale today and googled it. I can't get my head around any practical use beyond maybe being better than some sharp sticks.

Am I missing something?

    By the way, some of the reviews on the link above are worth a laugh.

    From the web page:


    The S333 Thunderstruck™ sets the standard for the ultimate in personal protection by simultaneously firing two rounds of .22 Win Mag with each pull of the trigger. With four pulls of the trigger, eight rounds are fired in only three seconds.

    By combining standard ammunition and birdshot, each pull of the trigger will deliver an incredible combination of firepower and very light recoil.

    The S333 Thunderstruck™ is incredibly reliable because it functions as a Double Action Revolver. These Revolvers are far more superior to any other automatic pistol which are rendered useless when they jam or misfire. Additionally, the two shots per pull, with four pulls of the trigger, makes the S333 Thunderstruck™ the most redundant and reliable personal protection firearm when your life is on the line.


    Sets the standard?!?!? Ooooooooookkkkkkkk...
    Birdshot?!?!?!?!?  Where do you get these .22 Mag shot shells with "BIRDSHOT"?????????

    So if my pistol jams it's now useless?!?!?!?  I guess instead of clearing a malfunction I should just throw my useless pistol into the range trash can!!!

    Well HELL let me whip out my credit card!!!  :D

    BTW PSA is selling them for $369 in case anyone needs the gun that set "the standard for the ultimate personal protection".  I need to clear out my safe of all the other junk I carry now before my new gun comes in...  B)

    A guy hanging out at the LGS had a North American Arms .22 Mag revolver and was bragging on it as "2000 fps."

    Word on the street is that the trigger is so bad you can't aim it.

    On the other hand, fifty years from now a NIB example will be worth a gold brick.

    Yeah, that's where I saw it for sale. I put one in the cart thinking it would trigger an automated message asking if I was doing drugs but it didn't.

    Yea, but a gold brick will only be worth 5 bucks

    I believe they meant "Rat Shot"

    Hmmm.... I kinda want one to go with my other weird and oddball guns. But not at that price.

    I'd rather carry my 22 BP pistol than that thing 😆

    I happen to know those 22 mag ones work better in a,self defense scenario against wood bees than a single 44 mag projectile :smile:

    Ok, I’ll give the Bee Shot cartridges!

    I am proud to say I took down a charging grey squirrel in my attic with a single-six loaded with .22mag birdshot, got several grouse over the years with the same set up too.

    That's excellent performance.

    You have me rethinking my carry options now.

    I was just using the red tipped ones.....figured they'd burn quite a bit going in.

    I think it's #12, pretty small stuff!!  #12 is .05" where as 00 buck is .33.

    So it doesn't interfere with grabbing that ridiculously huge trigger...

    That's the ugliest, worst engineered thing (I won't dignify it by calling it a handgun)  I've seen in a long time.

    1/8 oz. #12 shot, 175 pellets, it is not ideal, you need the magic BB with a head shot under 10 yds, way under 10 is best. It was the magic BB with the squirrel too, I used 5 rounds in my attic, I was almost fanning my single-six when mamma squirrel charged.

    You know how the Smithsonian is actually a complex of multiple museums?

    I've mentioned often that I'd like to have a Museum of How Not To Do Things. . .I think that revolver gets put in the really special "Seriously? Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?" wing.
