reliant pistol

Marketed as a great option for self-defense and EDC:

Signal9-Reliant-Pistol-1911-Revolver-CCW-EDCMultiple calibers to pick from… 4 shots, 4 barrels, with a rotating firing pin.  Hmmmmm…. why?  It’s like some of these companies try and figure out ANY little “neva bin done befo'” twist with firearm design and run with it, no matter how complicated or unnecessary.   There are numerous reasons this is so unnecessary, but one is the fact it’s pretty damn big for what it does.  It’s 0.75″ shorter than the sub-compact Glock 26 for instance, but is thicker and wider.  Not only that but this Signal9 thing only holds 4 rounds (and an extra 4 in the grip, for a reload), and the Glock26 has 10 ready to go in a tiny little magazine.  The only major advantage I see that this reliant has is the “no snag” aspect in that there is that there is no reciprocating slide, external hammer, or external rotating cylinder for all 4 of the shots.

Wat-memeAnyone else think that by looking at the trigger, it checks all the boxes for being “pure ass”?

MSRP is $500.  There is lots more information on the Signal9 Defense website if you care.  *shrug* the market will decide as always if this is a better idea than I think it is.

Thoughts?
