Modifications & Safety

Tuesday, July 14th, 2015

There has been quite a bit of discussion about the Gadget over the past few days, both pro and con. What strikes me is that safety improvements are held to a different standard that other modifications. People will change their sights, triggers, even permanently modify the grip of a gun all in the name ...

Thanks to a Mr. Anonymous (which is clearly the most common surname on the Internet) and his contribution toward a pair of Gadgets, the Gadget Striker Control Device campaign on Indiegogo has already met its original goal in less than two days! Again, Tom and I want to thank all of ...
