North Carolina-based Trailblazer Firearms recently shared some photos from their factory floor showing some of the production on their folding .22 deep concealment pistol.

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.

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.

“Our commitment to designing and manufacturing American-made firearms remains our top priority,” says the company in a statement, going on to elaborate that 2019 “may include a few new product announcements.”

Retail on the Lifecard is $399, tin not included.
