A letter from Raymond B. Kohout Inventor, DoubleTap
To our valued customers:
As the inventor of the DoubleTapTM pistol and owner of the design and utility patents, along with other intellectual property including the DoubleTapTM name, I am issuing this press release to inform our loyal customers of the current status of the production of this new innovative pistol.
Since we introduced the DoubleTapTM Tactical Pocket Pistol in November of last year, we have been overwhelmed by the industry reception; the popularity confirmed by literally tens of thousands of orders placed by consumers to their dealers, through our distributor partners.
Unfortunately, with the deepest regret, today I announce that we have terminated our relationship with HEIZER DEFENSE, our manufacturing partner, due to their inability to manufacture the DoubleTapTM pistol. I cannot comment further on this subject at this time, under advice from legal counsel, due to pending litigation.
It is our intention to immediately license the design to a leading firearms manufacturer or to align with another manufacturing source to produce the DoubleTapTM. We intend to accomplish this as quickly as possible to satisfy the huge demand for the DoubleTapTM pistol. I will make a further announcement as soon as we have established a new manufacturing agreement.

Raymond B. Kohout Inventor, DoubleTapT
