    "Completely safe when chambered" needs some clarification; explain why you think it is so perfectly safe. And when presenting this firearm and unfolding it I assume it is striker ready to fire? How many times have you used one? How many times have you pinched yourself trying to unfold it...assuming you have practiced presenting from your pocket? Looks like the latch that keeps the gun in firing position is on the rear of the grip...has anyone accidentally folded the gun? Honestly, I do not think the engineering is ahead of its time as much as it is out of touch with real needs for personal defense which encompasses simplicity.

    1/2 the grip is missing too. Can not be comfortable to shoot.

    I doubt I would buy one even if it were half price of the original pistol, since it's been cut in half.

    What you have there is not innovation. What you have there is a gimmick. Do you want to design something that will revolutionize the Glock? Design a thumb safety for it. Design a Glock keeping it as simple and effective as Glocks are. Change nothing about the current function, but create an ambidextrous thumb safety. By this time next year you will be a wealthy wealthy man. I would buy several of them.

    My son got a gun today and I went along. I handled the one at my dealers. I could not wrap my pinkie around the grip. It sure would not be a long session of shooting gun.

    I would buy one too. I have a glock 17 and i do like it but it's also modified from stock. It's dependable and it's ugly. It's the one gun i own that if i drop it, bang it or otherwise scar it i won't give a hoot.

    Looks like the design alters the entire trigger. Way to much that "could" go wrong, A thousand No Thank You's

    Rule of thumb: Refuse to be a 'beta-tester' on your dime.
    The difference between a Socialist and a Communist is that the Socialist doesn't have all the guns yet.
