Default Honest comments and opinions wanted...

-This thread is a replacement to a thread that I started several days ago. It was removed as I didn't have vendor status, but now it is back...

This product is not for sale yet.

I am the inventor, an avid shooter and though I am still very new to your forums, I am quickly becoming a huge fan of them. I have been extremely impressed by the positive and professional attitudes of both the forums users and it's staff. I have never felt so good about a place on the net as quickly as this one.

Anyway as I had started, before I rambled off in the last paragraph. I invented and patented a new gun-lock over the last several years and I would like honest comments and opinions on it from real people, before I take it to market.

I can only get so many biased comments from friends and family before I can't take it anymore, however fellow gun owners that I don't know can teach me a lot. I would rather speak to the people this can help, then the people that want to exploit it. Any input you can give would be very appreciated and help me in creating a reliable and safe overall finished design.

I don't currently have a price point for these locks, but I can tentatively say that each unit will cost about half the price of a standard ammunition magazines full price.

Looks like a creative invention but honestly most people throw the locks that come with new guns in the round file as soon as they open the box.

The problem is, here in Texas we keep our guns loaded and ready. There's nothing more useless than a locked gun when its urgently needed.

An innovative idea, for sure. I hope they do well for you.

Now, my thoughts:

Trigger locks come with most NIB firearms and for the most part can be used on several different makes. A trigger lock also allows for the action to be closed. I prefer this as to limit dust, lint and whatnot into the action. Just personal preference.

Now, if you could get some mfrs to use these as the main lock that comes with the gun, then you could do well. Better yet, get the few places that make it manadatory for a lock on a stored firearm to adopt them as an acceptable lock option.

Just my .02 that should be counted as .01

I think I would put a patent and copyright on those then contact the firearms manufactures and try to secure a contract. I don't think there is much if any of a market for locks in the civilian market. You might need to hire a marketing agent.

+1 to all of this. I, personally, wouldn't buy one, for these reasons, but manufacturers might like the idea, and that's where the big bucks would be anyway.

I think you have a great idea as far as firearms locks go but personally I would not buy one. I would prefer to keep my weapons in a safe without an individual lock on each. Outside of that I would keep my personal defense weapons secured in a manor to allow access as well as safety. I wish you the best of luck with your product.

they would be nice for short term storage but personally i like my slide forward to relieve strain and ware on my springs so i myself would stick to my trigger locks.

That's a great lock, but like most of us here, I would not use it. Again, patent it and market it to the manufacturers.
