Alright everyone, today I’m am super excited, we just got the new lifecard in. Let open this bad boy up!! When you first glance at it you notice the gorgeous box it comes in. Inside the inbox, you get several things including a manual, logo, snap cap, and of course the lifecard. Also, you get a spent shell that they shot, and you get your lock. This thing is about the size of a credit card. But thickness is about 1/2 inch, That’s pretty sweet.
To open the barrel you’re going to pull the top latch back, and it will open up. inside the barrel of the lifecard, you’ll find the snap cap loaded. Do not dry fire this thing without this in here as it can ruin the guns.
Your barrel latch is on the top part of the lifecard. You have your handle release latch right under the barrel latch, so that opens it up and gives you all the goodies, and it clicks once it’s in place. You cock this bad boy back and then your cocked and ready to fire. You also have a half cock too. Once you shoot this, it won’t fold back up until you have it at half cock.
It’s a pretty cool little dude. This thing is discrete in shape. I mean you can take this thing wherever you want. It’s sleek and smooth. It’s not going to get snagged on anything when you’re pulling out of your pocket or anything like that.
The lifecard is the size of a credit card which I stated before. It’s pretty Dang small! Definitely a good little gun for backup or putting in your wallet or somewhere where you’re not supposed to have a gun. This gun is also ambidextrous.
The lifecard also has lots of built-in safety features, even has a storage compartment. The storage compartment holds extra rounds in there. Unfortunately, this is a single shot, so the storage compartment to nice to have. The lifecard only shoots 22 long rifle.
The length on this is looking at 3.375 inches. It’s 1/2 inch thin. It only weighs in at seven ounces. It’s super lightweight making it easy to put in your pocket. You’ll forget it’s even there. You can also put it in your tee shirt pocket, and no one knows. Crazy right!?
It’s fully machined billet constructed. With a pre-hardened steel barrel, bolt, trigger. The frame and handle are made from lightweight aluminum. The Finish is corrosion resistance and hard coat anodized aluminum. Best of all it’s made here in the U.S.A.
Something new that Trailblazer is making for the lifecard is different barrels for different caliber. As of right now they just came out with the 22 WMR, which I’m super excited about. That has a little bit more of a kick behind it than the 22 long rifle. It’s more of a backup gun is what I’m thinking due to the reload speed being so slow.
Alright everyone, we’re going to spice this up a little bit. We’re going to see how durable the lifecard is. We’re going to run it over it with big blue, and we’ll fire it afterward. After running the lifecard over with big blue everything function as if nothing happened to it, The only difference was the tire marks left on it. If you ask me, they should use the tire marks as there new camo!
I know a bunch of you are probably wondering, can you have this thing closed, cocked, ready to rock and roll? The answer is no. If you go ahead and try to cock it while it’s closed, it doesn’t allow you. Now let’s say you opened it up, cock it. Can you put this back? You can, but the trigger starts to hit, and you would ask yourself, will that fire? It will not. We tried it. If you slam it down to close it, it will get stuck, and it’s a pain in the ass and get back out. So the answer is you cannot have this sucker cocked and ready to go in your pocket. Every time you’re going to pull it out of your pocket, you’ll have to open it, cock and shoot it. By far this is not the fastest thing in the world.
Would you carry this and why? Why would you carry this single shot 22 lifecard? Is it sweet? Is a badass? Would it be your backup? Would you carry it every day? Tell me why in the comments. I want to see what you guys think of the trailblazer.
