There is a long list of things to keep in mind when using a handgun, one of which is remembering to count your shots. But sometimes, in the heat of the moment, that can be a difficult prospect. The folks at Radetec have an answer, however, in their Smart Glock Slide.
Like something out of a video game or a science-fiction film, this slide fits onto a standard Glock handgun (though it’s unclear which sizes it’s being built for), immediately turning it into a smart firearm via a shot counter mounted on the end and wireless connectivity. On top of that, it can also notify you if your magazine is empty or let you know that there’s a round in the chamber. It also pairs with a smartphone app that gives the user even more information, ranging from the number of shots fired to stats on specific shooting days, and it even allows you to set alarms for when it’s time to perform maintenance on your pistol. It’s not ready to go to market just yet, but we expect to see it offered for sale sometime in the next year.
