Heizer Defense, the former business partner to Double Tap Defense, announced the Pocket Shotgun is set to ship in Fall 2013. The new handgun is a single shot, top break pistol designed to fire .410 and .45 Colt ammo.
In the press release, Tom Heizer states:
It is important to know that we will only use Stainless Steel or Titanium frames. We believe that these are the safest and most durable alloys. In our opinion lighter metals do not provide the safest and most enjoyable experience that our consumers deserve. We will not allow the commercial distribution of a pistol until we are certain of the safety and the durability of the product. That is why we have chosen Stainless Steel as our base material.
Oddly, the Heizer website clearly indicates the Pocket Shotgun will come with either an “aluminium and stainless steel or titanium frame.” Perhaps the website has not yet been updated to reflect an all stainless steel frame?
