Trailblazer® Firearms Adds Hicks Inc. as New Distributor

A leading, national wholesale distributor for outdoor equipment, Hicks, Inc. is now distributing the pocket-sized, folding .22LR LifeCard® pistol.

Asheville, N.C. (June 2018) Trailblazer® Firearms, makers of the smallest folding .22LR pistol, proudly announce it has signed Hicks, Inc. as a wholesale distributor for the LifeCard® folding, single-action .22LR pistol. The diminutive pistol, launched last year, has superseded sales expectations. Public demand across the country for the pocket-sized pistol has necessitated the move to grow Trailblazer Firearms’ distribution network.

“Hicks Inc. has an outstanding reputation in the firearms industry for superb retailer service,” Aaron Voigt, founder and president of Trailblazer Firearms, said. “We look forward to a long and prosperous relationship with Hicks Inc. and know that their professional staff will not only take care of us, but our end users, as well.”

Chris Johnson, buyer for Hicks Inc., also commented, “The LifeCard is a perfect little EDC for individuals wanting something that they can easily and inconspicuously carry in a pocket or carry in a tackle box, backpack, purse or survival kit. Our retailers are eager to fill the demand for this little pistol.”
