Ron with Trailblazer FirearmsThe Firearm Blog

Imagination, Integrity, and Innovation. These are the three hallmarks that dominate the ethos of the folks at Trailblazer Firearms and today on the TFB Behind The Gun Podcast I’ve had the opportunity to bring on their President, Ron Dan. Ron and I met during TriggrCon 2022 where he and his team brought out the new threaded barrel LifeCard, as well as their new and unique Pivot 9mm foldable pistol caliber carbine. Today Ron and I discuss both of these new firearms, the founding and history of Trailblazer Firearms, and where Ron and his team hope to guide the company in the following years in terms of products, and iterations of current products that they have on their website already.

TFB Behind The Gun Podcast Episode #47: Ron with Trailblazer Firearms

On today’s TFB Behind The Gun Podcast, we’ve brought on the President of Trailblazer Firearms, Ron Dan. Ron has a lot of experience within the firearms industry having spent his entire professional career in the industry. Ron has worked in everything from retail, distribution, manufacturing, and sales and now sits at the head of Trailblazer Firearms. Trailblazer is most well known for its LifeCard single shot 22 caliber foldable pistols but during TriggrCon 2022, Trailblazer brought out their two newest toys for everyone to try out. The newest iteration of the LifeCard pistol will now include a 1/2×28 threaded barrel making it what Trailblazer believes to be the world’s smallest suppressor host. In addition to the threaded barrel LifeCard, Trailblazer also brought out their new Pivot 9mm PCC folding rifle which is both a novel design and one that should be futureproofed against any of the ATF’s constantly changing metrics for what constitutes a legal firearm. Today Dan and I discuss both of these new firearm offerings from Trailblazer in detail and also give you guys a glimpse of what is to come down the road in 2023. Please welcome the President of Trailblazer Firearms, Ron Dan to the show!
