Trailblazer Pivot Pistol Caliber Carbine

From the same people who made the Lifecard .22 LR pistol:

In the video abouve the guy demonstrates putting it into action by barrel sweeping 180 degrees when he pivots; not super ideal.  In this second video you can see the guy rotate (AHhggggh! I mean “PIVOT”) the lower receiver instead, which definitely seems like better practice:

I’m glad I know about this gun and how to use it now, because if I ever saw one in person there would have been a 100% chance I would have picked it up and then jammed the barrel into my shoulder before letting out a “WHUT IN TARNATION?” *nervous laughter* in order to save face.

I guess it’s supposed to compete with the 20+ year old pistol caliber carbine staple – the KELTEC SUB2000?  Considering the Sub2000 only costs around $500, I think the Trailblazer Pivot is going to be a really tough sell at their current MSRP of $1795, and a fraction of the brand recognition.  I’ve been wrong before though.  They probably are doing fabulously well off sales of the LifeCard, which I would have never predicted.. so who knows maybe the Pivot will absolutely kill it as well.  I wish them the best.
