    I had an American Deringer in 45 acp. It kicked like a mule and it was an all steel 15oz. gun. I am not real recoil sensitive but it was not fun to shoot. I can only imagine the recoil on this little devil (the Heizer). Traded the derringer for a Beretta 84bb.

    being a complete recoil junky, I'd love to take that little bad boy for a spin. With the ported barrel, that little guy would light up the night.

    I like it but, it might be one of those guns that you can't get repair parts for three years from now. But, looking on the bright side - you won't hafta hunt for spare magazines.

    Looks like that sheet metal gun (the liberator?) they dropped into Europe during WWII for use by the resistance.
    I carry to protect myself and my loved ones from the BG's. Not to solve societies problems. That said: if more carried the deterrent would only have a positive overall effect on those problems.

    Interesting. Looks like a handful. What's cool is that it actually appears to have a small front sight.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

    Cool

    Bet that would light the shooter up if fired from the retention posistion or inside a pocket.

    Flashy barrel! Sort of looks like a big-ass LCP.

    The barrels have termites.

    The more I look at that little gun - the more I like it for BUG duty.
    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:
    Heizer Defense LLC is a firearms design, engineering and manufacturing company headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri. 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. www.heizerdefense.com

    Titanium frame = $$$$

    Interesting concept, but I think I'd rather have 7 rounds of .380 in something like a LCP than only 2 rounds of .45 in this.

    I guess this will appeal to the crowd who refuse to carry anything other than a .45. For them, it will be the ultimate BUG, since they are convinced you only need one shot of .45 anyway...

    I also would not want to fire that thing from a close retention position, with those ported barrels. I kinda value my eyes - call me crazy...

    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    Not just anyplace on Earth. St Louis, MO, where they could use all the compact firepower they can get.
