For those of us waiting for the gun's release: the design engineers and the manufacturer had a "falling out". Now the litigation begins. Currently the gun is in vaporware status.

WHY am I not surprised???
And I had good thoughts about the possibility of their being successful.

beag,

Yeah, I thought the same thing. It's a neat design. While I hope that it materializes, I ain't holdin' my breath. :D

Too bad. I had already seen one TV show and thought it was on its way. Guns & Ammo had an article on it this last summer, too.

I had my money ready. Too bad. Well, there's always next year. Now, what am I gonna do with this money? Wait...I know, I'll buy a gun!

I just don't get why people want these so badly.

It is around the same size or slightly larger than your average compact 9mm that holds 6-7 rounds yet the double tap only holds two rounds. They are so close to the size of the Kel Tec PF9 and Ruger LC9 I just don't get the intended market.

What is this fascination with 2-shot over and under derringers?

Not to mention the ridiculous price? It can stay in vaporware status.

I doubt very seriously that that is the hold-up.

Nobody said that you had to like it.

If they expect to sell it, they better do all they can to make sure as many people like it as possible.

Vaporware, away!

BTW, is there a link to the story? Thanx.

I really thought they looked neat until I saw that they were HUGE for a derringer and very expensive.

The name Heizer Double Tap has been changed to just Double Tap. Their facebook page has lots of info. They are actively looking for a manufacturing partner. Double Tap stated Heizer manufacturing could not produce the gun in the quantities needed to fill orders. I don't know why it took them so long to figure that out.

Problem is gun manufacturers are tapped out. Can't make the guns they already market let alone more.

I think Kiln has put his finger on it.

You can get a smaller automatic with more capacity for fewer dollars.

I would have only been interested if the cheapest model wasn't $500. For the less than 500 category you can get any number of pocket .380s, 9mms, 22Mag etc. Not as powerful as 2 rounds of .45 or 9mm but the capacity is a trade off for power. All in all much better options than spending 500-800 on 2 shots.
