I could think of a hundred different models of firearms created from 1903-2017 that this fantasy "gps firing pin blocker" would not be able to be used
in, but we will just look at one here.
The ubiquitous AR-15 carbine, chambered in 5.56/.223.
Anything capable of pulling off what the OP claims would have to be something just a little wider than a grain of rice, and maybe about as long.
Nothing else would be able to fit into the bolt carrier where the firing pin sits, and i'm not entirely sure where it could go in *there*, either.
So let's start making our wündercraft, shall we? So into this little tiny volume of a cooked grain of rice, you have to fit:
A. the mechanical doodad that actually blocks the firing pin
B. the actuating mechanism/servo that physically moves that doodad
C. A power supply of some kind
D. the processor/CPU
E. GPS Antenna
I'm sure I've forgotten something, but just with what's listed in here you can see the impossibility (with current non-nanotech solutions) with the
The problem is not the antenna, nor the cpu, it's the rest of it. Any mechanical system capable of blocking the force that firing pin imparts to the
primer of a cartridge would not be able to fit in such a small volume, nor would it be able to withstand the constant jarring impact of the hammer.
Metallurgical technology isn't there, and battery technology isn't there yet, either.
OP: know why we don't have electrically fired guns in common use today? Because the non-electrically fired weapons work better, are easier to
maintain, and are more reliable. Your friends teaching Krav Maga in between neuron-smashing sessions in the think-tank's hollowed out volcano lair
are wrong and out of touch.
