Heizer Defense DoubleTap Innovative .45 Titanium Pocket Pistol

The DoubleTap comes in 9mm or .45 ACP

Heizer Defense enters the firearms market with their .45 ACP or 9mm DoubleTap dual barrel pocket pistol. Backed by a team with a collaborative experience of hundreds of years, the DoubleTap is being marketed as the “smallest and lightest .45 ACP tactical pocket pistol” on the market. The DoubleTap holds two rounds in the chamber and two back-up rounds loaded on a speed strip that are stored in the integral grip. The patent pending roller-bearing mechanical double-action trigger has a 10-pound trigger pull that feels lighter. The 3-inch barrel is interchangeable between the .45 ACP and the 9mm. For safety, there is a visible loaded round window. A thumb latch automatically ejects the spent shells.

Customers have a choice between a base model constructed of aluminum or an upgrade made of titanium with or without a ported barrel.

The Heizer Defense DoubleTap is only slightly bigger than my Kel-Tec P3AT and just slightly larger than an iPhone 3G (which you can see a comparison of the two on their website, (http://heizerfirearms.com/Iphone.htm) but obviously packs more of a punch than my .380 or iPhone.

A deeply concealable back up weapon in .45 ACP or 9mm can mean the difference between life or death when you need to shoot at close range. The Heizer Defense DoubleTap also solves the problem of those of us (girls) who do not like to change our wardrobe for carrying.

There are many followers anticipating the release of the DoubleTap, and like us are anxiously awaiting reviews and firing tests of the Doubletap.

Heizer Defense is expecting to start delivering the DoubleTap to dealers in February or March of 2012.

  1. Yep ben hearing and seeing ad’s for months,, i think it’s all hype myself, unobtanium is not that expensive on this planet, brass for shells is expensive

  2. Ok, so this is a cool concept and I would definitely consider it for another carry option, but their website list a price range between $500 and $800 from a company few people are familiar with. I think I’ll wait till a cheaper back up option comes out.
