A newly formed company called Trailblazer Firearms, headquartered in Asheville, N.C., has launched its first firearm, LifeCard, "the last gun you'll leave behind."



LifeCard is a .22 LR single-action, single-shot folding pistol, no bigger than a credit card when folded. The sleek, no-snag designed pistol's frame and grip handle is constructed from fully machined aluminum billet and hardcoat black anodized. The tilt-up barrel, bolt and trigger are made of steel with an Isonite finish for corrosion resistance.



"Trailblazer Firearms fully intends to spearhead innovative new firearms products starting with the LifeCard, available later this month," explained Aaron Voigt, president of Trailblazer Firearms. "New designs and true innovation have been the exception and our goal is to be the pioneer laying new trails for gun enthusiasts, designers and manufacturers." 

A lifelong gun enthusiast, in 2010 Voigt hit upon an idea of a unique pistol. The idea slowly became a dream and a long drawn out reality as Voigt tackled the jungle of patents, trademarks, prototyping, machining, licensing, marketing and more. Now, seven years later, the dream that started as a sketch on a piece of paper can be held in the hand, aimed downrange and fired.

"Initially, I had no idea that going from concept to actual product would take seven years, but in essence, that time spent was valuable and will show in every aspect of this remarkable product. I am looking forward to putting this pistol on the market and can't thank my family and friends enough for all the support and patience," Voigt said. "We expect the product to hit our distributors, Ellett Brothers and Jerry's Sport Center, in about three weeks. We look forward to the feedback from our customers regarding our initial product offering and look forward to continually innovating new products."
