Electronic Safety for Semi-Automatic Handgun
Nearly all Semi-Automatic Handguns use a slide to load a round into the chamber from the magazine. If this action can be stopped, the gun cannot be fired.
This invention discusses an automatic systems which senses the proximity of a unique RF tag and controls a lever into the slide making it impossible to chamber a round. The implementation can be constructed to fit into the handle stock of any semi-automatic handgun and can be retrofitted to earlier guns. The cost is very low (~$25) and it is tamper proof. The system is mounted in the stock of the handle and is <5mm thick.
