I think we already have a gun like that: the 1911.The idea of a gun you have to grip perfectly in order for it to function is terrifying.

I concede that I didn't fully understand how this technology worked. I wnt back and read up some more, and it does sound a little like Bad Idea Jeans.You can fire a 1911 so long as you properly grip it....it doesn't need to be perfect. You can fire it right handed, left handed, two finger grip, three finger grip, firm grip, light grip, gloved hands, bloodied hands, dirty hands, possibly broken or injured hands, and even with broken grips.
Im of the opinion that a properly functioning pistol will not malfunction due to limpwristing unless its VERY severe. If your gun works fine with a strong grip and chokes if you limpwrist my opinion is its a sign of a borderline gun that needs some tuning.zveric said:It has 2 external safeties which need to be managed as part of the grip to fire the gun reliably. The gun really does have to be held a certain way to fire reliably, and this grip needs to be trained and practiced. Whenever anyone on any of the brand forums has a problem with their new Kimber/Baer/Wilson/Colt etc. not cycling reliably, there are guaranteed to be a series of posts asking them about subtleties of their grip.
Caseless ammo and electronically fired guns have been around for a while now. There is absolutely nothing new about that. For some reason they've never gone mainstream.If the electronics can take the place of the mechanical fire control systems that are prone to wear out and fail. There could be some real value and performance gains for certain applications.
