    A Gun Capable Of Fitting Into A Wallet Is Being Sold By An American Arms Company

    The National Interest recently profiled the latest firearm which is pushing the limits in terms of size and technology except this isn't a "big gun" but quite the opposite. A North Carolina company has produced and is currently selling a single-shot "credit card gun" which fits into a wallet, and which can be neatly tucked away in a person's back pocket.
    A military analyst writing for The National Interest describes the gun, called the "LifeCard," as "a single-shot, single-action .22 designed to resemble an innocuous credit card."

    The credit-card sized pistol was "fashioned from lightweight anodized aluminum with a steel trigger and tilt-up barrel" which enables "the 7 oz. pistol folds up into a 3.375 inch by 2.215 inch card that, despite its half-inch thickness, can fit with relative ease inside your back pocket or average wallet."
    It was developed by a North Carolina-based company Trailblazer Firearm, and has enough ammo storage for four rounds.
    The company has billed it as a weapon of "last resort" in dangerous, unexpected situations, but it's also sure to draw controversy given the extreme ease of concealment and potential for passing through security screenings, similar to the controversy evoked by 3-D printed guns.


    “Trailblazer Firearms fully intends to spearhead innovative new firearms products starting with the LifeCard, available later this month,” Trailblazer president Aaron Voight said in a statement. “New designs and true innovation have been the exception and our goal is to be the pioneer laying new trails for gun enthusiasts, designers, and manufacturers.”
    But Jared Keller, writing for the military website Task & Purpose, poses the following question regarding the weapon's ultimate effectiveness in a life and death situation:
    But how effective would this $400, uber-hyped firearm actually be in a situation that calls for a stealthily concealed weapon, or a quick draw? The product is so new that reports from the urban battlefield have barely been released.

    Probably should ban it. It has no legitimate hunting purpose
    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    I think its primary value would be to intimidate people who are excessively afraid of guns.

    I wouldn't want my life to depend upon a single .22 shot. Even if you hit your target, you are going to need some luck for the shot to strike something vital to stop a threat.
    I compiled a "brief" history of events since October 2008 that are defining the global currency war and the role that gold is playing:

    Also, have you contacted your Congressional Rep and asked them co-sponsor Ron Paul's Rep. Paul Broun Jr.'s HR 1098 77: Free Competition in Currencies Act?

    One of these maybe?









    This may be useful if somebody is trying to sneak up behind you.

    I would imagine the "urban battlefield" would be quite hilarious if these were popping all over it.

    This tool is useful for a concealed last resort only. You obviously need time to deploy it. It is useful as a surprise in a hostage situation perhaps. If you can get up behind an armed thug and pop him in the head to take his weapon from him. I want one...

    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.
