POTD: Amex Black LifeCard

    I learned about this custom Trailblazer Firearms LifeCard pistol from the company’s latest newsletter. This little firearm that has the length and width of a credit card and a thickness of little over a dozen of cards, has been painted to resemble an Amex Black Card. The Amex Black LifeCard is created by HTX Tactical of Houston, Texas.

    Trailblazer Firearms LifeCard is a single-barrel break action handgun with a folding grip. It is available in .22 LR and .22 WMR caliber options. This miniature gun even manages to offer a compartment in the grip where you can fit three .22 WMR of four .22 LR spare cartridges. The price of the basic LifeCard (regardless of the caliber choice) is $399. If you want the Amex Black LifeCard, Trailblazer Firearms suggest contacting HTX Tactical.

    Other features of .22 LR version of this mini gun are quoted below. The .22 WMR LifeCard has the same specs except, obviously, the caliber.
