Sharpshooter Kirsten Joy Weiss believes she may have accomplished something no other marksman has done.

Firing a double-barreled 1911 handgun, Weiss split two playing cards with one pull of the trigger.

Weiss told TheBlaze this was the first time she had handled this particular firearm. "This gun is very rare," Weiss said, comparing the kick on the gun to a Smith and Wesson 500 -- one of the most powerful handguns ever built.

How big is the gun? According to Weiss, "This is twice the size of the regular 1911, and I can barely get my hand around the grip or to the trigger." On the video, she remarks, "If this were medieval times, this thing would be the biggest dragon in town."

After firing a few rounds with the 1911 to familiarize herself with the gun, Weiss decided to try a trick shot.

She believes this to be "the first trick shot ever with the double-barrel 1911, and the first trick shot of its kind, splitting two cards with two bullets simultaneously from one fired shot."

Weiss mounted the two cards side by side and started recording, showing her missed shots as well as her successes.

The first shot was close, and the second hit one of the cards, but did not split them.

However, on the third attempt, Kirsten Joy Weiss nailed trick, splitting two aces, with two bullets, from one pull of the trigger.
