PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla., April 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Improved Guns, Inc., a not for profit company, is founded to promote the US Pat 7,036,258, which is aimed at eliminating accidental shooting. The passive device is a pin that must be broken before the gun can be shot. Any firearm can be adapted by drilling a small hole in which to insert the appropriate pin. These pins are made with incremental breaking thresholds having a range of 11.5-15.5 lbs. Improved Guns, Inc. can easily retrofit all guns at our cost, although donations are appreciated. Hopefully, new guns will soon include this device.
The inventor, Lanny Lee says, "The only thing that makes this invention seem like a safety is that curious little children can't shoot themselves or their buddies when they find the gun." Mr. Lee added, "What the world needs least is another gun lock; what it needs are safer guns, and this device has surpassed all expectations in field trials.
"Despite owners' demands, and overwhelming studies, Detroit refused to provide seat belts until the late 60's, except as an expensive option. This continued to 1978 when the government required them to be installed. One has only to look at the old 50s cars to see how the industry spent vast amounts on useless things like padded dashboards. Only liability suits changed their attitude. Gun makers' reception to this life saving device has ranged from contempt to cold indifference, while their attitude seems to convey they can stand in the rain and won't get wet.
"Manufacturers' specification sheets show trigger pressure is generally 4-5 lb. In contrast, A NYPD officer told me they raised their guns to 9 lb. trigger pull, and except for sniper rifles, military weapons are slightly over 12 lb. Buying a gun can be a life altering decision; that very gun might save your life, but then it might also end a loved one's life.
"There is a rapidly growing problem of accidental shootings due to the growing purchase of automatic firearms. New owners are unlikely to store their guns safely, leading to guns falling into the wrong hands. The passive pin device prevents accidental discharge; in a stressful situation, the inexperienced will discharge the gun out of control if the trigger has too light pressure."
Improved Guns' founder has handled and shot guns throughout his life. As a child, he witnessed an accidental shooting in his own home, the memory of which is what nightmares are made of. Carelessly passing a hunting gun between adults set the scene for the tragedy.
The Post Office cautions mailers not to send a complete gun; the barrel and slide must be removed! The USPO will accept frames only and mailed as parts only. See the website for complete details on shipping guns to be equipped with the device.
