The PAR 1, a .223 pocket pistol.

Most of you are familiar with the concept by now. The Heizer is a slab of steel about the size of an iPhone in a case that fires one round. The .410 version has been popular, and they’re making news with even more hand-abusing calibers. They’ve brought a .223 to the show, the PAR 1, and it is something to see.

I’m not sure how many of you have fired these types of guns. I have. I’m not a fan of the punishing recoil energy that drives straight back into your hand. But you aren’t supposed to like it. This isn’t a range toy. It is a defensive firearm meant for close range work. And you’d rather have your hand hurt than die–I think that’s the idea. Firing a .410 would be bad enough, but I’d hesitate to pull the trigger on a .223, and I’m not sure who would volunteer to shoot the .308 version that’s coming.

Eh. They are just expanding on the work they did when they were working with DoubleTap. That deal went south and they went their separate ways. DoubleTap took the original design and they came up with their own based on that design and the tooling they already had in place. Not very well executed from what I've seen but apparently good enough that they are expanding the line.

The original design is basincally a last ditch belly gun. It's too uncofrtable to shoot on a regular basis, even with the ported barrels and the sights are so small that quick sight picture aquisition isn't really possible. Basically, it's a "OH CRAP! HE"S COMING OVER THE TABLE TO KILL ME!" gun.
