Can you ping your pistol?

I heard about this on the podcast version of Guntalk, and I really had to wonder if it was April 1--RFID tags in pistols? What kind of idiot company would do that?

H&K for one. SIG for another (same link).

As expected, some are poo-pooing and fitting those who disagree for tin foil hats. Feel free, but I don't want anyone who can afford a $19 RFID reader from eBay to be able to scan me (especially from close range), find out that I'm armed, and with exactly what, right down to the serial number.

This is a stupid idea. I'm not in the market for a new pistol right now, but if I were, guess what brands I wouldn't be looking at?
