    I wouldn't really call this innovative.

    Honestly, to call this innovative is not unlike how certain people like to call anything new & different "avant-garde" completely ignoring that "avant-garde" indicates something that will ultimately catch on due to how obviously useful it is.

    This isn't a new concept, it's an amalgamation of existing concepts, many of which dating back over a century ago and haven't resurfaced since due to the fact that they were found to be impractical.

    Furthermore, there have been plenty of actual innovations in the field of firearms which have easily caught on and now folks make fun of those who made ignorant comments about how silly they were initially, with many even going as far as to admit to their own ignorance on the subject and making fun of themselves for it, so your "old men" comment is totally incorrect.
    Folks will always be a little bit resistant to change at first, especially when they are already set in their ways and like to stick with that which has served them well rather than rushing to adopt the latest thing, but when something comes along which truly brings something innovative to the table with obvious appeal/intrinsic value, folks tend to flock to it with little hesitation.

    So yes, I'll remember this thread next time a truly innovative firearm hits the market which everyone immediately recognizes. I doubt it will be very long either, because in my honest opinion the advancement in firearms technology has been rather vast over the past decade or so, with multiple examples of innovation which ultimately caught on.

    I equate things like this to concept cars. Most people wouldn’t actually buy one, though interesting, but there might be one small thing found in it, to be useful.
    No, I wouldn’t have one of these pistols, it’s ugly for starters.

    I don't follow gun technology at all. Can you provide a couple of examples of vast advancement in firearms technology in the last decade that caught on? They all "look" the same to me, and a gun made in 2019 seems to have the same technology as those made in 2009, so I'd be interested if I'm somehow missing out by buying older guns.

    well Depending on Pocket size this will empty itself in one pull of the trigger and it holds like 30 rounds as well.----
    I guess I could tote it in an ankle holster since I can't find a pocket big enough?

    As usual, with any new gun Or unique gun design I want one.

    I just got off the phone with standard manufacturing. Now, follow me on this and I'm going to tell you what they said. They said that from the 1st day that the guns were produced they were offered for sale on their website. They had no idea how much demand there was going to be.The 1st day of sales and their website was overwhelmed and went down.

    As of today they are not sending guns to any distributor or individual dealer. They are going to sell to private citizensUntil the backlog is caught up with and there is no longer a waiting list. That sounds OK but and it's a pretty good butThey don't have any guns! They want me to pay them on a credit card today and they hope to deliver the gun in about 2 months. So actually they want the customers to finance their future production.

    I think I'll wait and see what happens.......

    Standard does produce good stuff. I've handled several of their single actions, they are quality. Use a major credit card, they'll help you recoup if there's an issue.
