  2. It’s a frigging .45! The size of the barrel alone is going to stop the attack!

    No sarcasm was harmed in the making of this comment.

  3. Santa carries the DoubleTap. How do I know? Check out the grip panels.

  4. Dave — I think it’s supposed to be “HD” but your version is way funnier.

  5. I can hear it now, “Why one shot from this lil’ gun and that .45 will hit’em so hard, they’ll do three black flips, and that’s one more back flip then ya’ll get with a Taurus Judge!”…

  6. If this thing is small enough and light enough I think it might, I say again might, have merit as an Onion Field gun.

    Other than that, I dunno.

  7. I’ll buy one… when it comes in .410!

  8. Good gosh, that is chock full of extra ugly…

  9. Wow.. it actually says “St Louis MO USA Earth”.. guess those Martian imports are in for some competition..

  10. The oh so sad thing is that this would probably sell….. but at least the shooter will have two really good chances to miss before it can be used as a blunt object.

  11. Well, I don’t know about the quality or the shootability/weight, but except for the vents, it might be a decent Onion Field gun. Certainly not in the Judge category, at least theoretically.

  12. If I use that to shoot the first two rounds of a FAST drill, will my time count?

    By Aaron on Oct 4, 2011

  13. Aaron — Nope. Firing less than six (or more than six) is a non-scorable DNF.

  14. All joking aside, with a fixed battery of operation, nothing moving, it it holds up, I bet it will at least work. Not my “cup of tea” but just sayin’.

  15. …if it holds up,..

    By gtmtnbiker98 on Oct 4, 2011

  16. The first barrel is ported for a faster follow up shot, and the second barrel is ported to take 0.010 seconds off of the 30 second reload.

  17. Perfect underwear gun, but be careful, it could go off for like…. no reason.

    By JConn on Oct 4, 2011

  18. Honestly.. it seems like a better design than most “derringers” I’ve seen. There’s a least a trigger guard, so it hopefully won’t just blow up in your pocket.

    By Mike on Oct 4, 2011

  19. Well done, JConn….well done.

    By TCinVA on Oct 4, 2011

  20. TC beat me to it. I think JConn should be rewarded with a special P-T.com coin for Archer references. And Awesomeness.

  21. Any firearm described as “nifty” will always create doubt in my mind.

    By Kirk in Utah on Oct 4, 2011

  22. You know… people will beat a path to the door of that thing. It’s the “mouse gun” personified. I can see all manner of metrosexual men carrying this thing in the pockets of their sprayed-on, low hip-hugging $150 blue jeans. And, of course, they’ll never get to it when they need it. But that won’t stop them from “accessorizing” their wardrobe with some “heat”.

    If I were king I’d fine them dearly for wasting electricity, polymer, steel and intellectual capital. And if you bought it you’d be promptly deported to Inner Mongolia.

  23. Todd-

    I was talking as in a New York reload…maybe switch to a snub-nose revolver? :-)

    By Aaron on Oct 4, 2011

  24. I’m going to purchase one of these, just for the hell of it. I’m a life long St. Louis resident, and the novelty of owning a firearm by St. Louis’ (apparently only) gun company is just too good to pass up.

    On a more interesting note, I believe that Heizer Firearms is connected with another local company, Heizer Aerospace Industries, a metals machining outfit based out of Pevely, MO. I’m making his connection simply by inference because of the name, and because this little pistol is crafted of Titanium, one of the primary metals that Heizer Aerospace uses. Heizer Aerospace made a name for itself by machining exceedingly difficult titanium parts. Some companies I have worked with in the past have done business with Heizer Aerospace, and their products, especially their steel and titanium ones, have always been of superior quality. It will be interesting to see if this company takes off and what they may have in store for the future.

  25. I also just looked up Heizer Defense on Missouri’s secretary of state website. The business was only licensed on 8/30/2011. Very short amount of time to get your first product out.

    By Long Tom Coffin on Oct 4, 2011

  26. I was right, apparently this new business is a joint venture between Ray Kohout, a local firearms big wig, and Charlie Heizer, president of Heizer Aerospace.

    This is like a story out of Glock 2.0; savvy businessman partners with space age alloy factory owner to start making pistols. Gaston, anyone?

    By Long Tom Coffin on Oct 4, 2011

  27. Aaron — Off the cuff, I’d say the intent of the F.A.S.T. is to shoot it with a single gun. But I’ve told at least one snubby-carryin’ madman that if he wanted to show up to class with two of them, we’d work something out.

    By ToddG on Oct 4, 2011

  28. The industry trend is toward guns that are hard to shoot and control. This gun is a natural in todays market. They have outdone the airweight snubby.

  29. I believe that it was P.T. Barnum who said one is born every minute.

    By KD on Oct 5, 2011

  30. I guess I am a moron; until I saw Long Tom’s comment,I thought this was all a joke!!!!!!!!

    By The Fish on Oct 5, 2011

  31. Definitely needs an accessory rail to be “competitive” with the Taurus Tactical Judge :)

    By Gabriel on Oct 5, 2011

  32. These will sell like hotcakes. It’s about the same size as an LCP and it’s a .45 so obviously its better.

    The vast majority of people carrying out there can’t figure out how to carry a real gun and that’s OK with them because they honestly believe that when they shoot somebody with a handgun that it will be like on TV and the guy will fall down and stop attacking them. I don’t care what caliber you have most likely that first shot isn’t going to do jack shit unless you get really lucky with that tiny gun with no sight radius that is so punishing to shoot that you don’t practiice. I’ll stick with 18 rounds of 9mm in the gun and another 17 ready to go.

    By JeffJ on Oct 6, 2011

  33. I figure you need to carry 4 of these. One for each hand, and one to give to each of two bad guys.

    Like a Hoodah pistol, the one sure way of stopping the bad guy with this is to give him the gun and have him fire it.

    Does it come in .45 Gap?

    By DonM on Oct 6, 2011

  34. You can easily carry four in your ninja-socks alone – two per leg. I’d keep a fifth under my fedora…and a fifth of vodka in my suit pocket to deaden the pain.

    By DirtCrashr on Oct 6, 2011

  35. It’s the Maxwell Smart Shoe Gun. Just tie it to your shoelaces and you’re golden. I can see Nike coming out with Air Doubletaps. Every wanna be gangster will want a pair.

    “Excuse me bad guys, I just need to pump up my gun.”

    By Six on Oct 6, 2011

  36. I don’t know, Todd.

    At least it can’t have a mag drop . . . or a stove pipe.

    And its got to be real cheap on ammo, since no one is going to fire more than two rounds out of that thing.
