357 magnum shift...handle? :D

Im working out the details now and have created a 357 magnum shift handle mockup on my CADD program. It is a model of the hand gun from the beginning of the barrel towards the handle. The grip will be the pistol handle. I will be making a mold and casting it out of aluminum hopefully in the next week! I will have pictures up when I am done. Just wanted to shoot this out there and see if anyone ever did it...

PS: I did not get super detailed with it because it is just a CADD drawing. The model should be more in depth.

I think it's a cool idea but the first LEO officer that pulls you over for whatever may not see the humor in it.

You need to make the trigger a hand throttle, then you may claim your crown of Win.

Get a cover to put over it in case you get pulled over.

Well crappy update ... you guys called it haha my shop boss wont even let me make this at his shop haha so I am going to a more "normal" design. I am making a hurst style handle shifter but making it custom to fit my grip as well as engraving my last name in the side of it. I will have pictures when its done!
