    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.

    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

    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.

    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.
