    Hello Everyone,

    I recently designed a memory foam pillow that safely & comfortably holds most handguns. This pillow also has the ability to store valuables as a theft deterrent. I am currently in the Research & Development stages of this project, and looking for feedback. There is no product currently for sale and there may not be for quite some time. I am not "Spamming" here!

    Please click the following link for the details. Click "Skip Intro" if it takes too long to load...

    What are your thoughts on this concept? Any suggestions or advice? I understand that this concept is not going to be everyone's cup of tea, but I would appreciate if you would at least keep your comments respectful and constructive.

    Thank you for your time!

    Myself I don't think I would like it. The idea of a loaded gun under my head makes me a little nervous. I have pretty realistic dreams, and I would fear grabing for my pillow pistol and maybe shooting my wife, or myself. My idea is a weapon on a night stand which would allow me to wake up and understand what I was about to do before using it.

    Hey you never know ...I wish you the best.....Here is a catch line for your idea ....who needs a silencer when you have pillow pistol !!!!!

    How comfortable is it?

    Is it really "easily accessible?" , or will a sharp rear sight, or something of that nature catch and stop you from being able to pull it out?

    Watch out, the Brady Bunch will say the pillow makes an improvised silencer and will try to restrict its sale to undercover cops only :p

    If this is a joke you sure put a lot of effort into it :D

    If its not a joke. I don't think it is a good idea. I would not use, and discourage others from using it.

    You most certainly will violate one of the 4 basic rules of gun safety - RULE II: NEVER LET THE MUZZLE COVER ANYTHING YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO DESTROY

    I don't see how a handgun would possibly be placed into the pillow without breaking this rule.

    Regards,
    Rob

    hey, better yet, say that the metal of your gun in the pillow provides anitoxidant properties like those bogus bracelets that people wear to cure cancer and arthritis. ;)

    It may be a good idea, but I could not tell. As I tried to read it, the web site kept blinking at me and pulling my eye away. This is a fault in my brain, I am afraid. Things that blink make it impossible for me to focus. Sorry.

    You may wish to visit some pages or see some books on web design (not technique). Flashy isn't necessarily better when you're trying to sell an idea. I want to send you to this site for some constructive criticism, but please do not take the name of the site to heart. Do not take the name of the site literally--I do not mean that your site sucks. Just that it perhaps has some design elements that may distract from selling.

    I hope I haven't been harsh. I truly don't mean to be. I just couldn't use your web page.

    Because the muzzle points to the side? Which makes it no different than a nightstand safe, or any other form of secure or insecure storage. Most people sleep with their head on the pillow, not beside the pillow.

    You are forgetting that firearms do not spontaneously discharge.

    RULE II: NEVER LET THE MUZZLE COVER ANYTHING YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO DESTROY ( WHILE IT'S IN YOUR HAND )

    Now I've seen everything. A tactical pillow. Does it come with rails?

    Just kidding. Good on you for getting a product out there and taking a risk, now the market will decide whether it's worth something.

    I think the website looks great (although I do agree the flashing stuff is a little distracting).

    I think the concept and design of the pillow is great (if it is indeed comfortable).

    I am glad to see you have a patent pending. I hold a patent (for something totally unrelated) and know what that process is like. I hope you have an patent attorney working for you. I was able to get an attorney to work basically for free in exchange for a future interest in the product. You may be able to do the same.

    I'd buy it (depending on affordability). If price was not an issue for me - I'd buy it anyway.

    I'm not sure this is a good idea at all.

    First, why would you store valueables that are free to grab (grab the pillow) when you sleep?

    Secondly, no sane person will store a loaded hand gun potentially pointing into your ear from turning the pillow around in your sleep.

    Third, you will be sued to the end of the world from all misshappenings just waiting to happen.

    You can, though, market it as an anti-assault pillow if it was for the purpose of storing a can of mace. For anti-gun tenters perhaps?

    Lots of nay-sayers, but I like it. I don't really use a pillow for sleeping, but I like it as a throw pillow for "hidden in plain sight" protection. The firearm itself would need to be retained in a kydex-style enclosure to ensure no AD's I suspect. But that's easy enough to do.

    You don't understand the rule. If your interpretation were correct, NOBODY COULD EVER CARRY A FIREARM. Think about it for a second.

    Then how could I put my revolver in a shoulder holster, "pointing" at everyone as I turn? How could I put it in a belt holster, "pointing at my legs and feet? How could I put it in a Seventrees rig, "pointing" at my arm and head? Coopers rules are not Biblical edicts. You need to use your head.

    I like the hiding in plain sight aspect as well. Up close and in a pinch...you wouldn't even need to draw the pistol to get at least one shot off. Sort of re-defines "pillow fight." :eek:

    That being said...I would really want that inner holster/pouch wrapped in Kevlar.
