    Ahh so thats what that does. I have been wondering why a "safety" bullet would have a nail in it. I didnt really think it shot the nail though lol. They sell them at the range I shoot at but the package dosnt have a whole lot of information on it. I presume its all in the instructions. Interesting concept.

    Unique idea. I'm honestly not sure if I like it or not. I can see it could help prevent an accident if a kid gets ahold of your gun. I don't have any kids at home and my wife shoots and is very safety conscious, so I don't see a need for this.

    Good information to know. My fear is that gun control weenies will get wind of it and try to pass legislation mandating it for all firearm owners. I don't want any additional steps between me and protecting my life and I sure as heck don't want a useless firearm should I forget. Like SmokinFool I don't have kids and have no use for this.

    I also have no children in my home, but I can see that in some households this could be a practical safety device. When it comes to kids though, I'd rather just not let them get to the point of them holding it in their hands at all. My guns are either on my hip or locked up.

    The human mind that can fail to remember to be responsible with handguns around children can also fail to remember how to correctly utilize a safety device which, by its design, disables a handgun.

    No such device that renders handguns inoperable is desired around here. Handguns used for personal defense are inherently dangerous and that's as it should be.

    Although my boys are grown now, they were taught respect and proper handling of firearms at a very young age.....but any safety device where children are involved is definately worth it.......IMO.

    I'd unload my gun before I took the chance of inadvertantly "disabling" it.

    I dunno... I can see this getting someone killed in a stressfire situation.
    I consider my handgun "safe" when it's cocked, locked and under my direct control... otherwise in a locked safe.

    For the auto, wouldn't two snap caps do the same thing?

    No, you can just eject a snap cap - there's no blocking mechanism there.

    Besides, who wants to waste 2 live round opportunities? Some revolvers only hold 5 rounds, now you're using one for a dummy... or 2 for a semi auto, dumb, dumb, dumb....

    I've seen these sold at the gun show I attend every so often. Sounds like a good idea in theory, but I don't trust myself enough to remember that darned thing is in there should someone come barging in uninvited in the middle of the night. The gun is for self/home defense. I can't defend myself very well with a gun that won't shoot.

    I believe in pistol safes and education (or fear of "Daddy") to keep my sons safe from guns.

    My boys know that they can handle my guns with me, and they know that if they ever see a gun that they shouldn't touch it and notify an adult.

    They also know that you never point a gun at someone. Unless it is a Nerf gun
