The Heizer Defense Community
We, the principals of Heizer Defense, LLC, want to assure the public that it remains committed to manufacturing firearms for the public that are: 1) safe; 2) the result of the state of the art technology; and 3) manufactured in the USA from the best available high grade materials.
As some of you may know, Heizer Defense intended to develop a business relationship with Ray Kohout and Marvin Dufner; however, that relationship never materialized, the most prominent reason for which was the economics proposed by them did not forecast a successful business relationship.
It has been an arduous and time consuming journey adapting space age technology to an old idea. A small firearm that contained ammunition in its handle has been around since World War II -- millions of FP-45 ”Liberator” pistols were dropped in France to combat the Germans. We have been working to make a double barrel pistol the smallest and lightest tactical firearm to be commercially manufactured for public distribution. The final experimental models, which Heizer Defense has actually produced, were much smaller and lighter than originally proposed. The efforts to achieve this caused delays in production. Since Heizer Defense was responsible for the final engineering and manufacturing of the pistol, we would not allow the commercial distribution of the pistol until we were 100% certain that it was absolutely safe and free from defects.
HEIZER DEFENSE is a firearms company located in Pevely, Missouri. Its principals have over one hundred years of experience in design technology, machining engineering and aerospace engineering. It is headquartered within the building that is used by Heizer Aerospace, Inc. Heizer Aerospace was founded by Charles Heizer who has developed patents for the medical, automotive, aerospace and small-arms industries. Heizer Aerospace is known worldwide for its leadership in the engineering, design and manufacturing of fracture critical parts for the commercial and military aviation and aerospace industries. Hence our mission is that safety is our first priority in the manufacturing of the highest quality and technologically advanced firearms.
We currently have several patents pending that will be used in the manufacturing of firearms that we will be distributing to the public in 2013. The products will include a double barrel pistol. In addition we will be manufacturing a new weapon that will be more exciting and technologically advanced than the double barrel pistol. Members of the Heizer team will be attending the 2012 NASGW show in Orlando, Florida. However, they will not be able to show the above referenced firearms at the exhibit.
It is our promise to you that we will never market a firearm before we know that it can be manufactured and sold to the general public. With this promise we will build a reputation in the firearms industry that is second to none.
