Usually when you think of a .45 caliber pistol, you think of something meaty and large, like a Glock or the classic Colt .45. But Heizer Defense’s DoubleTap Tactical Pocket Pistol does away with big, opting instead for an almost cute 5/8 of an inch wide, 12 ounce double action gun. Double action meaning that one pull of the 10lbs trigger will eject both rounds simultaneously. Unfortunately, there’s no traditional magazine, so you’re stuck having to reload manually, although the butt contains two more rounds that are held together by a speed strip “so you can do a tactical reload.” It’s still only 4 rounds on the gun itself which may be a deal breaker for some. But considering the kind of firepower you’re looking at, and especially given that it’s two bullets being fired at once… you should be just fine, as long as you can hit a target. The DoubleTap also features interchangeable barrels so that you can use 9mm rounds as well.
The aluminum version is $500 and for $750, you can get a titanium DoubleTap.
