    These things will probably sell like hot cakes. I also have a feeling that Glock will end up having to put these on their guns.

    I understand folks looking for safety with their firearms, however, I do not like it when complacency sets in, and people get lazy with their gun handling because of a device like this....
    Don"t let stupid be your skill set....

    And Shepards we shall be, for Thee, my Lord, for Thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand, So that our feet may swiftly carry out thy command,
    And we shall flow a river forth to Thee, And teeming with souls shall it ever be,

    A solution looking for a problem. How about Don't pull the trigger until you are ready to fire.
    My rifle and pistol are tools, I am the weapon.

    Let me die in a pile of empty brass."

    I won't say that this is a bad product. I will say that I would need more convincing.

    How much pressure needs to be applied?
    How does this impact trigger pull characteristics?
    Durability - how well will this stand up over time and hard use?
    The article says that it will not impinge on gun function if inoperable due to fouling. Is this the only way that it can "break"?

    My knee-jerk reaction is that this is another "Gadget" meant to replace proper training.

    It will be worth keeping an eye on over time though.

    P.S. Rob99VMI04, thanks for sharing. I hadn't seen this before.

    It looks neat, but it also looks like bad things happening in the future... "See, it's perfectly saf... *boom*". Or the way it leaves you holding the weapon.... Proper trigger finger placement will completely eliminate the need for something like that- when would you ever have your finger on the trigger without a proper firing grip?

    Not saying that something like that is necessarily a bad idea, just that I'm not sold at this point..

    Please try to remember- I have a very dry sense of humor. It usually sounds mean, but isn't meant to be.

    I don't think this is revolutionary.Training isn't even needed to prevent neg discharges while holstering.Take your time,pay attention to what you are doing and don't be an asshat.Why would glock choose to put this in a firearm,it could mess with perfection,now Springfield,I could see them doing it.

    You want safteys on a gun, buy a 1911 or some other pistol. Glocks be Glocks.

    Why change the reasons I would get a Glock? 3 layers of passive safety, and no levers and such between me and defending myself. This sort of thing is superfluous.

    You mean Beretta 92? Already has a safety.

    Main reason is for additional safely when reholstering, especially for those that carry AIWB.

    Its like riding the hammer on a 1911.

    Is it for me? No, probably not. It was developed by some very hard training people though. They identified a potential safety hazard and developed a product to minimize that risk.

    I've got no problems with that.

    I carry Appendix and I'll put one of these on my Glocks. I put my thumb there anyway when I holster during training so it'll just be a redundant safety and one more layer between me and an unknown item that might get into the trigger guard while holstering.

    I like it.
