Do you need a different ring for every gun? That could be a lot of rings, and they'd all have to look different so you don't accidentally grab the wrong one.

Oh also what if the rfid can get hacked? Like with credit cards?
Implants in the user's hand. There is no way I'd let anyone place a chip implant into my body that transmits a signal.
And sorry but I'm not going to refer to inanimate objects as "smart"...not cars, not phones, not computers, and certainly not guns.

This idea has been around since at least 1975. Back in the day, Massad Ayoob wrote about the tested the Magna-Trigger on a few S&W revolvers, with good success. The idea is detailed about a third of the way down this Wikipedia listing, but you can Google other articles. As far as I know it was never adapted to a semi-auto, but other devices were.
