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.
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.
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.
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.
