    Anyone think this is a solution to a problem or just bait for the Glock bling crowd?

    I see no reason to have one. They sell them for guns of all kinds and even for bows. I can see them used for hunting, so you can see the hunt over and over, but who wants to use that as evidence in a home invasion defense? The jury could have a field day with that stuff...:eek:

    Believe it or not, this was patented in the 1800's- listed in Winant's Firearms Curiosa- with a note that powdered magnesium could be added to the gunpowder to provide illumination for "night shots" Camera would take photo when fired.

    Does the HK have a rail? Do you use the cameras in your training of clearing the mall?

    Why would a "pistol cam" be able to confirm that a good sweep of the room had been done? You would need a helmet mounted camera for that.

    With that little lens and the quick movement of the gun when clearing a room and firing your not gonna see sh!t really. Think about it. Get a small camera and attack it to a gun then go fire and record it. All your going to see is streaks of color.

    OK, if i was a cop {shudders} i would want one to CMA in the event i had to shoot somebody without a reliable witness and out of sight of the dashcam. Of course, if it was just streaks of colors, it wouldn't be worth much.

    I'm pretty sure i saw a Tazer video of a rabid fox attacking the LEO trying to round it up. If it is a good idea on a Tazer, i would think it just needed some serious beefing-up to be a good idea on a pistol.
