From the same people who made the Lifecard .22 LR pistol:

In the video abouve the guy demonstrates putting it into action by barrel sweeping 180 degrees when he pivots; not super ideal.  In this second video you can see the guy rotate (AHhggggh! I mean “PIVOT”) the lower receiver instead, which definitely seems like better practice:

I’m glad I know about this gun and how to use it now, because if I ever saw one in person there would have been a 100% chance I would have picked it up and then jammed the barrel into my shoulder before letting out a “WHUT IN TARNATION?” *nervous laughter* in order to save face.

$1795 at Trailblazer Firearms.

  • Caliber: 9×19
  • Weight: 5lbs
  • Materials: Aluminum / Steel / Polymer
  • Maximum portability – 20.9″ long (folded)
  • Full 16″ threaded barrel +extendable stock
  • Uses GLOCK® compatible magazines
  • Extra magazine storage in stock
  • Built-in safety features
  • Made in USA

I guess it’s supposed to compete with the 20+ year old pistol caliber carbine staple – the KELTEC SUB2000?  Considering the Sub2000 only costs around $500, I think the Trailblazer Pivot is going to be a really tough sell at their current MSRP of $1795, and a fraction of the brand recognition.  I’ve been wrong before though.  They probably are doing fabulously well off sales of the LifeCard, which I would have never predicted.. so who knows maybe the Pivot will absolutely kill it as well.  I wish them the best.

For some reason it didn’t even cross my mind this could be done:

LifeCard is on the long list of places that have contacted me in the past (wanting some of that ENDO sauce AKA that otherwise unattainable boost juice 💦💦💦).  They didn’t even do their damn research so I pointed that out first and foremost (shaming him HERE where I lobbed about them previously).  He said he actually only started following ENDO in December of 2017, and that post was September 2017 (very specific memory but I’ll allow it considering ENDO is the 9/11 of blogs… both in the sense that it’s an atrocity and that you remember where you were and what you were doing before you first came thru).  Since I have it all backwards, and I refuse (currently) to take payout money or product for posts the interaction ended after the standard pleasantries.

Thoughts?  Would you suppress one of these “this is my safety sir” pocket specials?


22plinkster takes a look:

Innnnnnnnnnnteresting.  As I say, .22 LR is a gateway drug heh heheh.

Not something I’m going to rush out to buy, but the concept / execution is cool.

It’s $400 if any of you guys care.
