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.
