internal

The idea is interesting, I’ll give them that:

$129 pre-order over at S&S Precision.

From what I can see, those are straight up dad jeans.  I’m a bit of a denim snob, and even if you aren’t I’m pretty sure you like the fit and cut of a particular brand the best.  Make this system adaptable to other jeans, then you might have something mass marketable.  

This seems like just another reinvention of the wheel, yet not as good.  The one initial advantage I thought there would be, is that there would be no holster clips visible if a person had their shirt tucked in…. well if you look at how they thread the system in at the beginning of the video, it doesn’t even look like you could tuck your shirt in front of the gun at all. You can do that with a LOT of IWB holsters, which is a good option to have obviously.  That “Expedient carry” pocket doesn’t really look all that useful either.  Sure it would be Mexican carry if you get up from the couch because you heard a noise outside, but it looks like it would be easy to fumble the draw.

One Glock option that is new to me is the internal safety lock. Listed on the Glock website under the “Safety Pack” menu.  When locked, the gun cannot be fired or disassembled.

My initial impressions when I saw this system were:

a) Why would I want a lock in my Glock(s)?
b) What advantage does this have over an external combination lock or the included cable lock?
c) The key looks overly complex
d) How many more parts is this adding to the internals of my gun?

The reality of most locks are, that given enough time or knowledge, they become easily circumvented and therefore rendered useless. The Glock Internal Safety Lock appears to be no exception.

As I mentioned earlier, like most internal handgun locks, when the Glock lock is enabled the gun cannot be fired or disassembled.  In this case the safety is achieved through a half circle shaped block that is rotated 180 degrees with the turning of the key which blocks the rearward travel of the trigger bar.

Released at SHOT show this year, two new guns in the S&W bodyguard series, a .380 pistol and a .38 revolver.

They are kept lightweight through the use of aluminum and polymer and steel.

Very nice commercial.. really highlights the guns and the lasers well.

There is a flash of the girl’s face at 1:00 where she looks a bit too happy for someone that could have been stabbed.  Maybe she realized that she had the upper hand :P

Some thoughts:

  • The integration of the laser into the frames (although real well done in this case), is not my preference.  I’d rather see it as an option.
  • Red lasers are so last year! … Don’t they know that green is the new red? Better visibility, greater brightness, and better range with the green.
  • Ambidextrous cylinder release on revolver is a great idea
  • I don’t like the external non-ambidextrous thumb safety on the pistol.  I prefer safeties you don’t have to remember to disengage (ie. like the internal safeties on Glock pistols).
