smart gun

VICE takes a look into it:

I haven’t watched this yet, it’s 45 min long and I’m 5 episodes deep into Temptation Island season 2 at the new crib right now… so it’s going to have to wait.  Gonna knock another one of those out before bed so I’ll watch this sometime tomorrow.   Judging by the comments, it looks like a doozie.  I sure hope it’s some new info / footage, because I did watch about 5 minutes of it, and it showed a lot of footage I’ve already seen in previous VICE videos from years back.

So far all of the “smart” guns have been pretty bad.  It’s just not a simple problem to solve considering all the external factors, and the fact it needs to work 100% of the time.

UPDATE: Classic VICE… this is all repackaged old footage. For the culture I realized it was my duty to multitask watching it while watching Temptation Island 2.

That’s something new (to me anyways).  Guys in my Instagram post were saying it has existed on paintball for years haha… classic.  I’m not sure how much this specific version is, but they have a version 1.2 on the digitrigger website for $600.

This is how they say it works:

A firearm that is DigiTrigger enabled becomes a hybrid, with two distinct fire control groups. The first and primary one is the mechanical group, which operates exactly as the mil-spec trigger group originally found in the AR-15. The second is a microprocessor based firing system, which operates seamlessly with the mechanical trigger group. Since the second fire control group is software based, the user can choose between preset modes.

Cool stuff.  I don’t really have a use for it, but I appreciate the work that went into it.  Being a fan of both technology and firearms, I find it interesting at the very least when the two come together.  I still have hope that someday as technology continues to progress, a “smart” gun can exist without compromising safety and privacy.

Thoughts? The fudds would love a trigger that was limited to one round every 1.5 minutes.


You gon’ learn today:

Cool stuff.  I expect we’ll be seeing a lot more of this type of thing down the road.  Artificial intelligence is definitely the future.

From the description:

“Our neural network has been designed so that it learns to look for potential targets. It highlights it [the target] out of multitude of things it sees. Then, understanding it is a potential target, the neural network can make a decision on how to act,”



Wired takes a look at Smart Gun hacking:

Plore is awesome.  You can watch his full DEFCON 25 talk on the topic here:

This is the best smart gun documentary I’ve seen:

I really thought it would have had more of an anti-gun twist to it, but I was pleasantly surprised it didn’t. They even showed suicide and homicide on their pie chart at 3:10! We’re so used to seeing it all lumped in together to inflate the number.

Oh man that ATF vault is incredible. I was hoping that VICE corespondent would shoulder a brace while he was there, just to troll haha.

That implant activated RFID implant “smart gun” failing at the end wasn’t ideal for that guy. It was great they left that footage in… I was pleasantly surprised.



Oh god not again… more smart guns.  Here’s the handgun version, which the look of alone will give you eye cancer:

The rifle version:

Safety-First-Arms-Smart-GunFirst off hahahha at the old “former Navy SEAL” card played for a grasp at legitimacy.  I mean I guess it’s alright for people to say what their background is no matter what it happens to be, but when it comes to firearms everyone with a military background loves to flex that like it somehow legitimizes their product / training method etc.. even if it is retarded.  “I SPENT 18 YEARS AS A TIER -32 space shuttle door gunner, with 3091 confirmed kills, running special ops on the dark side of the moon without oxygen… heh yea to say the least I know a bit about firearms and how YOU should use them.”

Hmmm so I have to enter a pin code in order to use my gun for self defense?  What could possibly go wrong? LOL *CONFIRMED TRASH*.  I feel like I should be jumping on this smart gun bandwagon in some form, if for nothing other than the trolling potential that creating a gun which is impossible to use when you need it most, would have. I bet the guys at the patent office cry real tears every time they see another “smart gun” application come across their desk.

You can check out the Safety First Arms website for more info.  The estimated price of this thing is $1295.
