The RTS TriggerShield™ was invented by Donald N. Richetti and Ryan D. Richetti to reduce the risk of unintentional discharge of firearms. With fit, form, and function input from military, law enforcement and civilian firearm experts, the RTS TriggerShield was designed for maximum protection with minimum effort.

The RTS TriggerShield™ protects the trigger from unintentional contact without hindering the operator’s ability to purposefully access the trigger. The operator simply slides the trigger finger underneath the spring-loaded cover for access to the trigger. When the operator is finished firing, removing the trigger finger from the trigger well allows the cover to close automatically, returning the RTS TriggerShield™ to its resting protective position. The RTS TriggerShield™ is designed with ease of use in mind, can be used with or without gloves, and is made from “Mil-Spec” materials for use in the most extreme and unforgiving environments.

The RTS TriggerShield™ provides constant protection against inadvertent contact with the trigger that can, and does, cause unintentional discharge.  Order your RTS TriggerShield™ today! Don’t forget to secure your military or law enforcement preferred pricing. Contact us today to schedule a demo.
