Asheville, N.C. -(Ammoland.com)- Trailblazer Firearms,  the company setting a new standard for discreet carry with the folding, single-shot .22 LifeCard pistol, the size of a stack of credit cards, has received a letter from the American Express Company demanding that Trailblazer remove any images or products that feature “the use of American Express’s trademarks including, … the image of American Express’s CENTURION® Card and its component elements, as well as of the AMERICAN EXPRESS® trademark, and on all websites and social media sites (e.g. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc.) where Trailblazer Firearms may be advertising, promoting, and/or offering its products.”

Included in the letter dated March 27, 2019 is AMEX’s demand to provide them with the names and addresses of the individuals any products were sold to, plus the address of the individual whose name appears in the image associated with Exhibit 3 of the letter.

“The size and surface area of the LifeCard is a perfect platform for a variety of finishes, “Aaron Voigt, founder and president of Trailblazer Firearms, said. “when I saw the LifeCard engraved in the style of an actual AMEX credit card I thought it was really clever since many people don’t believe our marketing efforts that claim the gun is actually the size of a credit card.” However, since their receipt of the cease and desist order from American Express, Trailblazer Firearms has agreed not to use the AMEX image in its marketing and acknowledges that American Express is in no way associated and has not approved of any products being offered using its trademarks.

Trailblazer Firearms offers the LifeCard in two special edition patriotic finishes on their website: “We The People” Special Edition LifeCard .22LR and the American Flag Special Edition LifeCard .22LR.

Founded just five years ago, Trailblazer Firearms formed to develop innovative, American-made firearms. The LifeCard, the first product from Trailblazer Firearms, was launched in 2017. While there was much skepticism pre-launch, when the mighty and tiny pistol finally hit the market, the sales exceeded Trailblazer Firearms owner, Aaron Voigt’s, biggest expectations. Customers and product reviewers hailed the exceptional workmanship in fit and finish. Performance expectations were easily met supporting the challenge that the compact, pocket-fitting pistol would shoot accurately and comfortably, whether for small varmint control or just having fun at the range.

Trailblazer Firearms will be exhibiting the LifeCard, a folding, single-shot .22 LR and .22WMR pistol at booth 8457 during the 2019 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Indianapolis, Indiana, April 26 – 28, 2019.

    1. In armed self-defense, the intimidation factor” is a prime criterion. A weapon that has a fearsome and eye filling appearance will be a serious contender. This credit card thing is less than a joke. A .22 caliber snubbie has more gravitas.

    2. I can’t own this item. I have rejected credit cards completely. My wife ran up $65,000 in debt and then moved in with her boyfriend. I followed the laws of North Carolina, waited one year and filed for a divorce. Here one year is considered long enough for the court. Divorce was granted and all the debt she had on my credit card was ruled to be her’s. $65,000.!! Therefore I have no credit cards.

      1. perfect for an old man like me . Old people are approached daily for mischeif and robbery and assault just to make em stop what there doinng getting shot in the eye with s twenty too is not a spit in the eye , so come off yer high horse and research a thing before ya go and blabered what you parrotted
