A principle object of the present invention is to provide an in-holster cocked semi-automatic and wherein the pistol can be cocked within its holster.

Another object of the present invention is to provide a pistol having a pair of outwardly jutting protrusions on its opposite sides and which, when the pistol is tucked in the holster the protrusions to rest on a member within the holster and secured thereto.

Another object of the present invention is to provide an in-holster cocked semi-automatic wherein when a person desires to cock a pistol, he simply pushes down the pistol in the holster, the holster being designed so as to not hinder such movement.

Yet another object of the present invention is to provide an in-holster cocked semi-automatic which can be cocked and made ready without the assistance of the persons other hand.

Yet a further object of the present invention is to provide an in-holster cocked semi-automatic which is particularly adaptable for use by the armed forces, a police force and also by use of hunters and other civilians.

Other objects of the present invention are to provide an in-holster cocked semi-sutomatic which is simple in design, inexpensive to manufacture, rugged in construction, easy to use and efficient in operation.

These and other objects will be readily evident upon a study of the following specification and the acompanying drawing wherein:

FIG. 1 is a side elevation view of the present invention shown in one position,

FIG. 2 is an end view thereof,

FIG. 3 is a side elevation view of the present invention shown in an alternate position,

FIG. 4 is a side elevation view of the pistol shown in one position shown uncocked and within the holster, and

FIG. 5 is a side elevation view thereof shown in the holster and in a cranked position.

Referring now to the drawing in detail, the reference numeral represents an in-holster cocked semiautomatic according to the present invention wherein there is a pistol 111 that is receivable within a holster 12.

In the present invention, the holster 12 includes an opening 13 in an end 14 thereof, the opening 13 being adaptable for the barrel 15 of the pistol 11 to protrude there through, as shown in FIGS. 3 and 5 of the drawmg.

The pistol 11 includes a grip handle 16, the pistol further including a pair of outwardly extending projections 17 one of which is located on each side 18 of the pistol, the protrusions 17 engaging a member 19 that is secured fixedly within the holster 12.

In operative use, when a person desires to cock the pistol, he simply pushes the pistol downward in the holster 12, the holster being made with the opening 13 so that it will not hinder the downward movement of the pistol into the holster. This movement of the pistol within the holster will cause abuttment by the protrusions against the member 19 to crank the pistol.

For safety, the trigger finger should not be in place when the pistol is pushed downwardly, as shown at 20, but should be placed ready as soon as the pistol is jerked out of the holster by itself, as shown in FIG. 3.

Thus there has been provided an in-holster cocked semi'automatic having definite advantages. There are times when a soldier or policeman is caught in an awkward position or situation, that is when his other hand would not be readily accessible to cocked his pistol. The present invention would eliminate such a situation.

Arms being always connected with adjility and timing, the present device has considerable advantages over other ordinary automatic pistols. An adversary will thus be at a disadvantage to a person possessing the present device.

For the purpose of sureness and quick action, the present device does not need to be cocked with a round in its chamber. Such practice will terminate accidents caused from unexpected firing off of pistols What I now claim is:

1. An in-holster cocked semi-automatic pistol assembly including a pistol and a holster, said pistol being receivable within said holster when in an inoperative position, and said holster cooperating with said pistol to cock said pistol, said holster comprising a pocket having an opening in one end thereof so as to allow a barrel of said pistol to protrude therethrough, and said holster being provided with a member secured to an inner side thereof, said member having means for abutting with said pistol for cocking the same.

2. The combination as set forth in claim 1, wherein said pistol is provided with an outwardly jutting protrusion on each opposite side thereof, each said protrusion abutting with said member fixedly secured within said holster pocket for cocking said pistol.
