Because it is on your finger and not attached to the rifle such as a magnet button does this make it any more lawful? Off the top of my head it would seem like when the lock comes into contact with the bullet button a creative prosecuted could argue an assault weapon was manufactured at that moment. Anyone had contact with LEOs while using this device?

I googled this G Pick you speak of and found nothing. You have a link or pic?

Been discussed many times. It's likely legal as a tool, but never seen its day in court.

Personally I'm leery of something that essentially becomes a prosthetic part of your body, but I'm probably being overly cautious on this point. I just don't want to be "that guy" who gets case law on the books.

its legal, as long it remain unattached to your weapon platform, you're good.

how is it any less legal than a bullet, a pen, a stick or whatever else you would use as a tool to release the mag?

Based on your example, the minute anything makes contact with the bullet button mag release it becomes an assault weapon. But of course we know that's not the case. the g-pic is just another tool. The law says nothing about the tool being attached to your body.

The reason a magnet is in question is because it becomes attached to the weapon (therefor not a tool) - the g-pic is nothing like this.

Looks like it would interfere with pulling the trigger or alteast alter the position of where you would naturally place your trigger finger, no?

I likely wouldn't want it on my trigger finger anyway. Just my .02

Works really well on your middle finger. With a speed funnel its even easier.

Don't think it will work for me anyway. Goin featureless on AR's and the ACR bullet button probably wouldn't work with that
