    I wouldn't go to such trouble for a 1 or 2-shot Derringer. Now if I could have something that would instantly whip my G21 into my hand...yes! I recall such a device, called a power-holster, was used by Harry Harrison in the 1960 SF novel Deathworld.

    Maybe an activation device in the other sleeve, or a device that required you to swing the arm such that the centrifugal effect would start it down the sleeve and past a certain point the spring would take over...

    But I wouldn't use one down here in FL, and would want it hooked up to a gun with a triggerguard & some other safety device.

I am curious as to how it is triggered so that a casual movement like reaching for the butter dish at dinner doesn't shoot your gun across the table. You may be able to utilize a setup similar to that used on artifical limbs that allows the upper arm muscles to control the hooks at the hand.
    The main character in the movie TAXI DRIVER starring DiNero had a similar device and it showed how it was actuated. That was a cool movie. Especially the last 15 min.
