    I'm sure there are probably more good scenarios than bad...I just struggle knowing that a 2 cent C spring is what stands between my gun working and not. A buddy of mine had one of these springs fail while at the range. Shortly thereafter we removed the mechanisms from both of our weapons (same guns).

    Re: Smart Guns

    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.
    What is this ring made of? Depending on one's health or occupation, wearing a ring might not be feasible (like some who can't wear a wedding ring).

    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.

    Manual safe also along with plenty of “dumb” guns, don’t have to worry about batteries, rings or other baubles.
