Sure, it looks more like a toy gun than a lethal weapon, with a styling that resembles the squirt guns of your childhood. A lethal handgun, though, is exactly what the Heizer DoubleTap Pistol brings to the table.
Billed as the “world’s smallest and lightest” .45 caliber pistol, it combines high-stopping power with an ultra-compact form factor (I mean, it makes the Taurus Curve look large), making for an ideal concealed carry weapon. With a flat profile, the thing should post a barely discernible bulge, whether you’re keeping it by your waist, in a pocket, or a bag pouch.
The Heizer DoubleTap is a double action handgun that measures just a little over half an inch thick, with a barrel that stretches for just three inches, ensuring it’s small enough to slip into a pants pocket. It only weighs 14 ounces, so it won’t bog down your pocket with the kind of heft traditional handguns would. Because of the compact profile, it can only fit two rounds in the chamber (one’s all you need to put down an attacker if you hit if you shoot right, after all), although you can always keep two spare rounds in the internal grips for easy reloading. Features include a no-snag aluminum frame with a matte black finish, blade-style front and rear sight channel, and an ambidextrous thumb latch for ejecting spent rounds. You can also opt for a version with a titanium frame if you prefer something more durable or a 9mm model if the .45 is a little too much firepower for your needs.
Available now, the Heizer DoubleTap is priced at $499.99.
