    I am hoping very soon to go and drop it into a real Glock and dry-fire test it to work out any "kinks" and after that go to the range and put it through at least a few hundred rounds to see how it will react to foiling and how comfortable is going to be on the hand.
    I’m actually curious in how it works out.

    Thank you, I am absolutely amazed that American gun owners are less vicious than Canadian gun owners toward this device, even though in Canada there is no CCW and the only place you can take your gun is the range after you get a permit to do so too.

    Anyway, my friend tested it in his Glock. He is a former NCO so I value his opinion. He tested it with no gloves and the magnet in the web of his hand is not a problem, the trigger was good with the new spring but something goes wrong after the first shot, and the gun cannot go into safety mode. So before the shot works fine. I needed this live testing for sure. I will keep you posted how it goes.

    Bro,

    I'm not gonna crap your creative spirit.
    But, I am going to tell you that Glock designed their guns specifically without a safety to reduce the amount of things that could go wrong in an engagement. 
    Several others have said it, so I am not going to continue to beat the dead horse...but, this is an extremely niche solution, for a very small portion of a profession. I also don't know if the statistical data even shows a need for something like this. 

    On the other side of the coin, this is a very dangerous road to go down. especially in a country like Canada, that has a very narrow view of handguns. If this technology becomes available, whats to stop the government from requiring ALL handguns to have to this safety device?

    Also, being an NCO, I can tell you that not all NCOs are created equally. I wouldn't trust a good quarter of the NCOs in the American Army to lead ants to a sugar cube....

    Very well said and true.
    Sadly I have to agree with your comment about our Army's NCO Corps. Until I retired in July, I worked with all ranks of every service on a daily basis.  A co-worker and I were considered "old school" Military guys that understood.  Most today can care less about anyone but themself and don't hesitate to make another look bad
    Anyways, this truly is a solution for a subject that is not an issue

    Not just NCOs.  My son is constantly telling me stories about the crap he needs to deal with from his young new guys and all I have to say is DAMN!!! 😱

    Apparently 18 is the new 12…
