Let "Mr. Stupid" blow a hole through his femoral artery, or shoot his family jewels off. It would occasion a much better result for all of us.
Yes, I think that the propensity would be that if someone felt resistance that they would simply push harder, either into the holster or on the protrusion, to overcome the resistance, which would probably result in one or both of the conditions that you stated. But, the "Gadget" will sell as well as the Sham Wow because it is a feel good product and it provides a measure of perceived security.

I do perceive of a time when somebody will buy one of these things, install it, and in showing how it works to their friend, will proceed to shoot their friend during the demonstration that, as with your last statement, serves humanity just as well. "Hey Bubba! Let me point this here loaded pistol at you so I can show how this safety device works!"

Indeed.

Everyone wants ​to be "special", don't they?

Someone who is stupid enough to reholster through an obstruction, and thereby fire the pistol into his person, is also stupid enough to willfully defeat "the gadget."

This hypothetical stupid person would feel the obstruction, as "the gadget" presses back against his thumb, but, being a stupid person, he would then persist in pressing the gun down into its holster anyway.
Why would he persist? Stupid question! ;-)

This is a Progressive device: It's a typically Progressive attempt to protect us from ourselves.
Instead, it would be better for the Human Race and our planet if Darwinian natural selection were allowed to do its assigned job.

I wish that I liked revolvers for defensive carry, because if I did, I'd buy one of those Kimbers.
But if I bought one of those Kimbers, I'd probably grow to like a revolver for defensive carry.
So I'm glad that they're too damn' expensive, so I can't buy one. So I can still not like revolvers.

My, oh my...
This guy actually shoots bullets out of a pistol held in that position?
And he still has a functioning left arm?

I bet that he's never, ever been in a real shooting fight.

What a maroon.

Handguns & Holsters / Kimber Releases New Models of K6s Revolver
« Last post by Taurian on Today at 09:23:57 AM »
I handled one of these this past weekend.  It is a very nice revolver with a weird trigger.  I say weird because  the action seems to "stage" as soon as the trigger is pulled slightly rearward.  From that point, it is a long pull, which is indicative of most double-action revolvers.  The trigger would take some getting used to if you are used to a trigger staging late in the rearward travel like a S&W, Ruger, etc.

Nonetheless, the Kimber revolver is a nice piece of work - and the price indicates just how nice a piece of work it is.

If that was a Ruger or Glock recall, I would be in trouble.
