Heizer Defense has created a tactical pocket pistol, the Double Tap, the world's smallest and lightest .45 ACP concealed carry pistol. The two rounds stored in the chamber are ideal for close quarter self defense allowing for two rapid fire shots. The Double Tap is available in .45 ACP and 9mm; with a width just over a half and inch and weighing less than a pound carrying this in a pocket isn't out of the question.

-Titanium Frame with a MIL-STD finish that resists corrosion
-Two rounds in the chamber and integral grips house an additional two spare rounds
-Ported barrel reduces muzzle flip and recoil
-Slim, no-snag hammerless design for easy pocket carry
-Ambidextrous thumb latch to eject spent rounds
-7 Patents pending including double-action trigger system
-1911 Ergonomics and loaded rounds are visible
-Quick change – interchangeable barrels
