As you know I believe in concealed carry, and I am always looking at the different options out there on the market. This new pocket pistol is about the size of an iPhone. Yep – that small and in .45 ACP or 9mm. Interesting concept. I can’t wait to check it out in person. I know the gun is MADE IN THE USA, but in my research I could not find a price. Heizer will have these models out in early 2012, and until then check out this information:
Heizer Defense LLC, a firearms company producing a new paradigm of pistols for the responsible-citizen and law enforcement markets is proud to introduce their first model for the concealed carry market; the DoubleTap.
The DoubleTap™ is a tactical pocket pistol, loaded with 5 patents pending, built on a titanium or aluminum frame; the slimmest and lightest on the market today at only .665 inches wide and 14 ounces. Available in a show-stopping .45 ACP or the more popular 9MM, this no-snag, hammerless designed pistol is completely designed, engineered and manufactured to the highest degree of precision and tolerances in an aerospace facility using aerospace technology and equipment. The DoubleTap™ carries two rounds in the chamber and the integral grips house two additional spare rounds. The break-action features a patent-pending progressive barrel porting option that cuts muzzle rise and recoil. The ambidextrous thumb latch releases the action and automatically ejects the spent rounds.
Unlike any firearm, the DoubleTap features a truly revolutionary double-action trigger system that utilizes ball bearings for a smooth action and crisp trigger pull. The DoubleTap is available in a titanium or aluminum frame and is finished with a MIL-STD finish, the same used on military aircraft, for corrosion and wear resistant finish. Production guns will be available in the first quarter of 2012. For more information visit www.heizerdefense.com and visit Heizer on Facebook.
