    Having a customer base of 5, it's highly unlikely any of those ignorant folks will get into an armed confrontation. I'm glad that the product doesn't have a very large distribution. You bring up an excellent point as a sell against the device. In my classes I teach students how to safely secure their firearms. The device in question is not one of the methods covered.

    Substitute for Common Sense and Respect

    I saw these things at one of the Gun Shows here about a year and a half ago. The idea was as useless then as it is now. I initially thought it was some type of Snap Cap, etc. Then the guy started into his sales pitch. Basically, if the firing pin contacts the center of it, a pin inside it expands the Nylon insert and jams it in the chamber rendering the gun incapable of chambering another round. In the case of a Revolver...the pin is supposed to protrude far enough to prevent rotation of the cylinder.

    Told him I wasn't interested and that Florida prohibited a weapon within reach of a child or "unauthorized user" and I really didn't want to rely on Personal Negligence and a lack of respect for Weapons as my kids only education regarding them. There's a few too many people sitting in Jails and Prisons right now that never got that education or a good ass-whipping, and only had the glorification of Movies, TV and Gang Violence to learn from.

    Decided a long time ago that my kids wouldn't learn about weapons that way, I've since taught them to shoot and respect them.

    If one of these devices should fail to prevent a child or unauthorized user from firing a weapon...this company will be up the proverbial creek. Just a matter of time.

    Agreed...This is one of those ideas better left as just that...an idea.

    I found a similar product (check out safeshell.net) collecting dust in the back corner of a shelf at my favorite gun store. The shop owner said he hasn't sold a single pack since he found them in the inventory from a shop that closed.

    Explains why the other product uses the name "bullet". The first idiot's invention was worthless, second idiot may have patented a redesigned knock off.

    At least the first idiot got the name right.

    A bad joke by some liberal anti gunner who needs money?

    I'd hate to think what would happen if a kid jammed the first one in the barrel, cycled the next two out and got a live round in the pike. I'd rather press a digital three number lock box combo.

    Once you jam the first one in the barrel, you can't cycle it until you "un-jam" it.

    My thoughts exactly. Evidently this conehead has never been in a stressful situation handling a gun.

    I actually did go to the site and, from what I saw, I'd think that this was a better product than the Safety Bullet. The design does seem to work in revolvers and semi-autos, and is re-usable.

    And as for Claire, WTF? Was she kept out back in the woodshed instead of going to school? Her apparent illiteracy thoroughly invalidates her message. Who would buy something from a person who writes like that?

    Yep! You all are perfect and you will never make a mistake.

    Let's just quit making safty products all togather, Because none of you need them.

    Let's remove all safty features on all firearms, you don't need them you don't make mistakes.

    **** happens. I hope none of you find out the hard way.

    I agree. Also note that on the site Claire uses the term "clip" to mean magazine. Anyone who makes that kind of mistake doesn't know enough about firearms to be making and selling firearm accesories.
