ST. LOUIS, MO – 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.
