    Hey guys,

    A friend of mine is currently working on a project for a self-loading holster. It reduces draw to fire time to under half a second, loaded or unloaded, and it's incredibly safe.

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2_Jk668CWk8]YouTube - Self - Loading firearm Holster by SLVE Inc. www.slve.ca[/ame]

    It has to be customized to each gun type, right now the model is made for a glock 17/22.

    What do you guys think?

    That is neat, and I'm sure it took some real talent to build it, but I think I'd rather just keep one in the chamber. That's just too much to think about.

    Well, you have to give him credit for trying, that's for sure, but while he is jacking around with that new toy, the guy carrying his 1911 condition 1 is going to have pulled, and shot him numerous times.

    Welcome to the forum. I think anyone that's uncomfortable carrying a loaded gun should think long and hard about why he carries in the first place. BTW, there is an "Introductions" section for new members to introduce themselves to the rest of the forum. You should visit it!

    You have a good point there for sure. I also noticed it was made for glocks-YUK.

    Great ingenuity, but appears to have been designed to circumvent the whole keep your finger off the trigger rule, regardless of weapon type.

    If you need to carry in condition three for some odd reason, drawing and chambering drills have been addressed by the Isrealis to a fair extent.

    Stalkingbear- I'd buy three of them. One for you, one for Cane and one for JD. Just so you guys wouldn't be scared to carry a Glock anymore. :D

    #1. If the gun is not safe to carry with a round in the chamber, it is not safe to carry.
    #2. The loading sequence runs counter to the acceptable (release the slide) method. Riding the slide in this manner is a recipe for a malfunction.
    #3. Holsters with a trigger finger actuated button have been shown to be involved in many ND's. If the trigger finger is pressing inwards as the gun is drawn, it will likely slide into the trigger guard when the guard is exposed.
    #4. Three different buttons to push, press down on the gun, pull up on the gun, draw gun from holster. You are already dead.

    There was a holster with a similar concept in the 70's for 1911's. Slow, cumbersome, unreliable. FAIL!

    The holster will probably find favor with some eastern police departments where they barney carry. Out here where I roam, most everyone carries a 1911 and carries it C1. We dont carry with the intent of shooting anyone, but we do carry to prevent someone else from shooting us. Those moments of sheer terror usually come as a surprise. Carrying anything other than C1, is a sign of someone looking to get hurt. Better not to carry than not carry C1.

    One thing I noticed about that holster was that it was horrendously noisy. clik clak. That would have gotten me killed several times. Silence and stealth are usually your friend. IWB and shoulder holsters are pretty common. Badge carriers lean strongly to tooled leather. It is really hard to beat a good horsehide holster. But you have to give the guy credit, he put a lot of work into it. He should go to work doing something more productive than law enforcement it looks like. He probably could have a future as a designer with a company.

    #2. Been tested and is still in the process of being tested by local police force and so far no problems or complaints. I guess you'd have to try it to believe it.

    #3. When the finger slides off of the button, it goes on the breach block...also, the button is further out from the other types so that the trigger zone is already out of the holster but your finger is still on the part of the holster (straight out, I might add). So in short, when you release the gun your index finger is not on the trigger reducing the threat of accidents.

    #4. It resembles natural grip, so when you grip the gun, you're pressing the buttons. It doesn't involve you doing anything unnatural, so there's no extra steps to do that may be forgotten under stress.

    Only 2 posts & both are promoting your "friend's" product? I believe you just joined to try & sell the holsters. If I'm wrong I'll apologize, but I doubt I am. If you're just trying to sell something, please put it in the classified section.

    My apologies if it sounds/looks like an advertisement, I assure this was not my intent. However the intent could be argued but the result is not, so if you think this should be moved to classified then I would ask the mod to do so.

    I posted a link to the video wondering if it would actually be functional for other firearm users.

    Not an advertisement but I don't even think you can buy it yet...the website's under construction, so if anything...I'd be terrible at my "selling" efforts.

    I only have two posts because I'm still a fairly new user and I'm reading a lot, but most topics are detailed and for the fear of looking like an idiot, I just read and not post. I can't argue the efficiency of a 1911 and a glock cause I only used the latter...and only the 17 version of it. So I've got a ways to go.
