Even in the competitive hunting/shooting community, few enthusiasts know about an arcane rifle known as a “double trigger shotgun.” Essentially, it’s a double-barrel shotgun having a trigger for each barrel.
This was an early day’s design with the triggers located inside the trigger guard, back to front. It was possible to press both triggers at once, causing a double discharge, though for the most part this was not a good idea – since it caused twice the recoil, and was hard on both the shotgun and the shooter – especially if not anticipated.
Though this essay is not about shotguns, but rather silver, the above concept provides a perfect analogy for what I believe is in store – a double discharge for both silver demand and price in the reasonably near future!
