A new family of products from Senior Citizen Defender hopes to make it easier for people to safely handle and shoot handguns. These non-NFA foregrips give shooters a place to hold a handgun in front of the trigger guard with their support hand and mount aiming devices like laser sights on a wide range of firearms.
The design incorporates a grip similar to an angled foregrip, a muzzle shroud to protect the shooter’s support hand, and an extended accessory rail for lights and laser sights. This lets the user shoot from the hip with both eyes open and still make reliable hits on target.
The company plans to make versions that mount directly to guns with fixed barrels, as well as rail-mounted and frame-mounted models for use with common semi-automatic pistols and even revolvers.
It’s an interesting concept that will likely fit in well with other ease-of-use products including magazine loaders and slide rackers. By placing the support hand up next to the accessory rail it should also make it straightforward for shooters to operate lights and laser sight modules.
“Millions of seniors are terrified of a home invasion but have few firearm skills,” says Senior Citizen Defender. “Many are scared of guns and cannot aim one. They need the Senior Citizen Defender.”
“The senior market is very large and getting larger,” the company adds. “Many of these people do not own a gun or are scared of guns. Yet others may own a firearm that they keep in a drawer and do not practice with because they have great difficulty aiming it.”
“The Senior Citizen Defender solves these problems. It is easy to use. It isn’t scary. It makes aiming a laser simple and it allows you to fire from the hip, which gives you a full field of vision. This helps the comfort level of seniors, women and newbies with no firearm experience.”
The company also says that its designs will make it more fun to shoot, which means more practice and shooting time. The Senior Citizen Defender along with other products-to-be, including the “Woman’s Defender” and “ADA Pistol,” are intended to be used reliably at distances up to 30 feet.
Senior Citizen Defender expects to have a full website up and running as early as next month. Hopefully, we’ll get a better picture of how the company plans to get started.
