    Hopefully not, but I'm of the school of thought that wants as little between the decision to fire and the gun going bang as possible.

    I would buy and use this technology, if it were
    (1) affordable
    (2)reliable and

    (3) private
    (not subject to hacking, some government signal sent out over the airwaves to disable everybody’s guns during a national (or local) emergency.)

    (4) not government mandated.

    Although I have absolutely no desire to own one myself.

    They would just outlaw wheelguns

    Mag-Na-Trigger was the first “smart gun” technology that allowed the weapon to fire only for authorized users who wore a special magnetic ring.

    It was ONLY offered for revolvers, and it has been around since the 1970’s.
    Gun writing guru and deadly force expert Massad Ayoob has had this system installed on a couple of his .357 magnum revolvers.
