DOUBLETAP™ DEFENSE, LLC FILES SIX MILLION DOLLAR LAWSUIT AGAINST HEIZER DEFENSE, LLC AND OTHERS
ST. LOUIS, MO (January 2013) - On January 3, 2013, DoubleTap™ Defense, LLC, owner of the DoubleTap™ Tactical Pocket Pistol filed a six million dollar lawsuit against Heizer Defense, LLC of St. Louis, Missouri, and others. In the lawsuit, DoubleTap™ Defense is seeking, in addition to monetary damages, an injunction to stop any further action on the part of Heizer Defense, LLC and others to manufacture or market a product based on the intellectual property of DoubleTap™ inventor Ray Kohout.
In the fall of 2012, DoubleTap™ Defense, LLC's relationship with the Heizers was terminated due, in part, to Heizer's inability to fulfill its manufacturing obligations. DoubleTap™ Defense, LLC has since engaged Azimuth Technologies, LLC, a Naples, Florida based company, to manufacture its new and improved DoubleTap™ Tactical Pocket Pistol. Production has begun on the smallest and safest conceal carry pistol on the market, with anticipated shipping to distributors to begin in the 1st quarter of 2013.

While I'm not really chomping on the bit to get one of their pistols, it is an interesting design.
And here's apparently Heizers' design...
Now I'm no mechanical expert, and I haven't seen the internals of the Heizer design, but I will say my years of gun blogging will let me say DoubleTap just might have a case.
