Gun Safety Tips
Lanny R. Lee said, “What the world needs least is another trigger
lock; it needs safer guns.” Improved Guns, Inc. is all about making
guns safer for handlers and those around them. Whether being stored
or deployed, this device prevents accidental shootings
discharge. The little pin, which has a tip that blocks the movement
of the trigger that breaks off with effort, is screwed into the gun,
thereby allowing the gun to be fired with sufficient amount of
making guns safe is no small thing. The patented Improved Guns pin
provides the owner the time to think, by increasing the amount of
pull (more than the hand strength of a child) required to break the
pin as is necessary to fire the first shot. "Health
officials believe that guns in the U.S. could become the leading
cause of death attributed to injury . . . surpassing injuries due to
motor vehicle crashes."
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 (making it virtually child safe). 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. See more details in the
Improved Guns, Inc. can easily retrofit all guns at our cost,
although donations are appreciated. Hopefully, new guns will soon
include this device.
The Improved Guns device makes
Because of our invention as well
as the increasing number of accidental shootings, some members of
the firearm industry have raised the trigger pull threshold
nearly nine pounds of finger pull. The resistance to making this
change is because all shots require the same pull. The old saw of
“making the first shot count” is rarely true when shooting automatic
pistols. The fact is a heavy trigger pull improves not only gun
safety, but the on
target accuracy with the first shot of a rapid-fire sequence.
"There's no do over in a lethal situation."
There is an amazing disconnect between real life lethal situations
as compared to gallery shooting. Think of it this way: in a home
, the target is
going to try to shoot you first, so your drawing a bead and
squeezing the trigger slowly is out of the question. This accounts
for some law enforcement accidents. There is no “do over” in a
lethal situation or when shooting light trigger automatic weapons.
The worst case is when the inexperienced user fires prematurely,
that is, before the user is prepared to fire, resulting in
subsequent shots being fired wildly in an attempt to get back on
target. When faced with an unexpected emergency, even well trained
professionals are likely to become rattled to some degree. Most gun
owners have never even fired any gun.
We can adapt any firearm
pins made in our shop using new precision CNC machines, operated by
a certified gunsmith. Shear pins are the most reliable of all of
these types of devices. The pins are designed to transition into the
curve of the trigger pull profile. more . . .
