    They posted the specs on their updated website - 5.5 x 3.9. Looks like it will be available with porting or without (good) and in either titanium, or less expensive aluminum for the frame. Also will be available in 9mm.

    That said, it is larger and more expensive than a 7-shot LCP (5.2 x 3.6), and only slightly smaller than a 7-shot PM9 (5.6 x 4.3). At the price they are listing, I only see die-hard .45 ACP and/or derringer fans buying this gun.
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    Well you don't have to buy it in Titanium & you have the option of Ported or non-ported. That helps.

    Aluminum Non-ported $499.

    Aluminum Ported - $569.

    Titanium - Non-ported $729.

    Titanium Ported - $799.

    Wooaah. Pricey little bugger. It was looking pretty nifty until I saw that. The concept is good, a highly durable compact .45acp, but I agree with 10thmtn, it will see limited interest.

    I need to hear some good news about how great & reliable it is first before I buy one.

    ST LOUIS, MO --(Ammoland.com)- Heizer Defense LLC, a new firearms company located in St. Louis, Missouri, will produce a new paradigm of pistols for the responsible-citizen and law enforcement markets.

    The principals behind the newly formed company bring over 190 years of firearms industry, design technology, manufacturing and aerospace engineering to Heizer Defense.

    The new patent pending firearms will incorporate space-age high tensile alloys, USA manufacturing and the most current design capabilities.

    Raymond B. Kohout, an entrepreneur with over 32 years in the firearms industry including ownership of the then largest retail firearms store in the St. Louis metro area and design and manufacturing of the first nylon assault rifle case and military nylon holsters, is partnering with Charles K Heizer an engineering genius who founded one of the leading Aerospace manufacturing companies in the USA.

    Other members of the Heizer team bring critical knowledge and experience in mechanical engineering, design and machining of components for the commercial, military and aerospace industries.

    The first product to roll off the Heizer production line will be a very unique, patent-pending Tactical Pocket Pistol. Specifics on the product will be announced in November 2011 at the NASGW Show in Reno, Nevada. The company’s website will also be officially launched just prior to the NASGW show. More information on the company and the new products will be available soon.

    About Heizer Defense:

The facility’s commitment to quality is exemplified in the multiple certifications including AS9100A:2004 Rev B. Certified, ISO 9001:2000, BQMS D6-82479 and D1-9000 AQS.

    If this appeared in the software industry it would be called "vaporware". Their website didn't show me anything more than drawings and animations of a product. That'd be fine if we only had to worry about animated bad guys and cartoons. Will the first one be delivered to a coyote someplace in the southwest dessert in a huge box from "Acme Industries"?
    The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restrains evil interference - they deserve a place of honor with all that's good.

    Unless it is made by the people from DoubleTap ammo, I smell an IP lawsuit coming. The gun itself looks interesting, but is probably not much fun to shoot, but shootable when that is all you have. Looks reasonably easy to conceal.
