Nick and Jeremy S caught-up with the Heizer Defense PKO-45 handgun at SHOT Show. Heizer’s promising a September delivery date for this bad boy and swears up, down and sideways that it’s not so bad, recoil-wise. “It boasts a revolutionary fixed-barrel-under-the-guide-rod configuration, resulting in less recoil felt by the operator.” Yes, well less is still more compared to anything other than a derringer. If you’re a TTAG reader attending the Concealed Carry Expo in Atlanta (April 29-May 1), where consumers can test-fire the PKO-45 at the expo’s mobile shooting range, we’d appreciate a quick email with your impressions and a video/pics. Meanwhile, whatchewreckon? Cool toy or practical pistol? Press release and pic after the jump . . .
