    No active retention? Doesn’t seem like a good idea.

    1. avatar Geoff PR says:

      Yeah, really.

      Especially for someone with non-optimal physical capabilities.

      Well, it’s a starting point, I suppose…

        What could possibly go wrong?

        Umm, everything.

        May I suggest using a strong lanyard.

    I spent a bunch of years in a Wheelchair and see Multiple Issues

    Along with a “No Retention” It’s even more noticeable than open carry
    the firearm looks too easy to take away
    and if the Rider is dumped out of the Wheelchair
    The Firearm is not “In Control” at all by the Carrier

    There are Better ways to possess a firearm in a wheelchair
    This doesn’t seem a Good “Carry” Solution at all

    Maybe for a Range day?

    I think a chest rig would be better.

    Perhaps some type of swivel mount for an M-60?

    1. avatar Snatchums says:

      That would be a highly entertaining mode of transportation.

    Like this, only more expensive and with no effort at all to conceal the firearm:

      Sweet idea. Love the case throwing in the video. $40 for cover and hardware is not bad all. Bring your own serpa.

      Able-bodied shooters please check out the video. Watch and learn.

      Normally not a fan of off-body carry, but I have a friend in a wheelchair and recommended this to him a few years ago. He has been very happy with it and even done a few IDPA nights with me.

    Have any of you seen the “Palm Pistol?” https://newatlas.com/single-shot-palm-pistol/18278/

    I was asked if I would test and review one of the originals back in 2013. I declined, since I could see only real problems with this thing. I may have been too hasty.

    Seems they’ve kept at it, and improved it. http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2016/02/09/gao-palm-pistol-by-constitution-arms/

    I still don’t see any real advantage to this myself. But maybe I’m wrong?

    The pictured wheelchair holster looks like much more of a problem to me. Any holster off body is unacceptable, far as I’m concerned. And retention in such a rig would be difficult.

      Drop TTAG management a note, I bet they would be be happy to request a review sample, if you would be willing do a quick write-up review on your impressions of it…

    My first thought on seeing this: cyclists. I could see this attached to a mountain bike… 🤠

    1. avatar Shotgun Sam says:

      Keep you gun on your body when mountain biking. Rider and cycle are often separated when things escalate south. Plus you gotta be able to jettison the bike in sketchy situations and even level three retention wont guarantee your gun will stay with your ride after a tumble down a hill.

    I was curious about cross-draw carry the other day and one of the stand-out reasons for some people was the accessibility it offered while sitting down. This was touted as being a better method of carry for someone seated in their car or, in this case, a wheelchair.

    Good on Comp-Tac to try and make something for those with difficulty or the inability to walk, but I think they’re trying to fix something that isn’t broken.

    Unfortunately, those confined or partially confined to a wheelchair often have a wider range of unique needs relative to fitment and customization of both the chair and any accessories attached to it.

    Several years ago, I and my wheelchair-bound brother set out to design – initially for him but with an eye toward a marketable product – a chair mounted holster. We ran into several issues and also came up with some good ideas.

    Long story short, we came up with a pretty good custom solution for him but, in investigating the myriad issues related to individual mobility and chair fitment, decided that we could not realistically come up with a good off-the-shelf kind of solution. OTOH, I see potential for adaptive, custom carry solutions for those in chairs and who use other kinds of mobility assistance or for those with other limitations like prosthetics, grip strength (or shape – not everyone has five fingers on each hand), or other unique physical configurations.

    Necessarily, most consumer products are designed for those that fit within the 2 sigma or, at the extreme, 3 sigma limits of physical stature and ability. As a general rule, those in a wheelchair are outside those limits and, because there are not large groups of people with a particular type of disability presentation, the adaptions of consumer products (including the wheelchairs and other mobility tools themselves) often have to be unique to the individual.
