Here at Task & Purpose, we have a deep, abiding appreciation for all manners of firearms-related ingenuity , whether it’s the 19th century-inspired MA Loader or the double-barreled pistol designed to resemble your average smartphone. But when it comes to combining gunsmithing with the logic of everyday carry, the LifeCard from North Carolina’s Trailblazer Firearms may take the cake.
Touted as “the last gun you’ll leave behind,” the LifeCard is a single-shot, single-action .22 designed to resemble an innocuous credit card. Fashioned from lightweight anodized aluminum with a steel trigger and tilt-up barrel, the 7 oz. pistol folds up into a 3.375 inch by 2.215 inch card that, despite its half-inch thickness, can fit with relative ease inside your back pocket or average wallet.
