Starting with an idea to make a gun that would fit inside an Altoids mint box, the folding single-shot .22LR pistol can still apparently hit the target at 10 yards.
The product of a seven-year project, Trailblazer debuted the Lifecard last year to a curious market. Machined from a solid billet and featuring a steel barrel in an aluminum frame and handle, the compact folding rimfire is discreet. Overall length is 3.375 inches with a width of 0.5 inches, or about the same profile as a stack of credit cards. Weight is 7 ounces.
But how does the $400 folder shoot? The answer to that could be in the above video from Trailblazer where, using CCI Stingers, they pepper a target at the 3-, 6- and 10-yard mark.
Billed as the “last gun you’ll leave behind,” the Lifecard is capable of fitting in the “5th” pocket of a pair of jeans and the company has sold more than 6,000 guns so far, proving that it isn’t vaporware. Last week, they even announced a .22WMR conversion barrel is soon to be offered to boot, adding a skosh more appeal to the pocket pistol for an extra $120.
