Collapsible Carry Gun: ‘No Bigger Than a Credit Card When Folded’
by AWR Hawkins7 Aug 2017

The LifeCard carry gun is a collapsible, single-shot .22 Long Rifle that is “no bigger than a credit card when folded.”
The gun is manufactured by Trailblazer Firearms and designed to be a self-defense tool that is easy to carry and even easier to conceal.
In a press release sent to Breitbart News, the LifeCard is described as a “single-action, single-shot folding pistol, no bigger than a credit card when folded.” Its frame is designed to be “no snag” and the “grip handle is constructed from fully-machined aluminum billet and hard-coat black anodized.” The barrel, bolt and trigger are all “made of steel with an Isonite® finish for corrosion resistance.”
When folded, the LifeCard is “3.375in. x 2.125in.” and “.05in. thin.” It weighs less than 7 ounces.
The handle contains an hidden compartment that holds four extra rounds of ammunition.
Trailblazer Firearms president Aaron Voigt said the development of LifeCard took a total of seven years, which was time-frame he not anticipate. However, he says the time spent was “valuable and will show in every aspect of this remarkable product.”
Voigt added, “Trailblazer Firearms fully intends to spearhead innovative new firearms products starting with the LifeCard®, available later this month. 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.”

I'd like to see how long it takes to get out of the wallet (or special case) unfold, lock into place and fire.

But it will be like teaching a pig to sing, a waste of your time, and you'll only succeed in anoying the pig.

So once you read the operation manual, it's says not to carry it loaded?
Also in the beginning of the book it says that it should be stripped and cleaned of grease and oil before firing. But the manual in the end tells you not to disassemble the weapon?
Not sure this thing is anymore than a gun I would buy used for 99.00

Seems to me you'd do better carrying a regular sidearm and simply gain weight and dimensions to make the firearm smaller relative to your new body size.

Saw a good comment on Facebook about this thing (paraphrasing):

"Small enough to get you into trouble, but not big enough to get you out of trouble"

I don't think so, Joel.  Apparently you have to unfold it into a pistol shape in order to fire it, so it escapes AOW classification like the pen gun that has to be "bent" into a pistol-like shape in order to fire.
