Seemed kind of pointless to me. I could hit two targets with one gun a lot faster.
I have tried more time than i care to count to hit two at once. So i shoot both at one target

I wouldn't try to hit two targets at the same time, more I would use them to increase my rate of fire and my ability to hit multiple targets in different directions faster. Not that I don't already make my gun sound like machinegun fire.

I can hit two at once, but it's not really very impressive to watch. It involves (for me) taking very careful aim at both targets with each hand consecutively, double checking my aim, then triple checking.... And even then, I can only hit two targets simultaneously maybe 3 out of five times...if they're pretty decent sized targets...like, paper plates at10 yards.

More like faster follow ups than two at the same time.

I doubt your follow ups would be much faster, by the time you move your focus from the right hand gun to the left hand gun whatever direction it is pointing then move on to the target and actually hit it you probably could have just moved your right gun onto that second target and fired just as fast and probably more accurately if you are better with your strong hand as many people are.

I've practiced a little bit at reloading & racking the slide one-handed, to similate the other hand/arm being injured. Haven't practiced it enough & definitely not very good & real slow at it. But, I can not even imagine being able to do it one handed while shooting with the other hand, especially if trying to shoot with any accuracy.
