    $60.00 Plus shipping for something that should sell for $19.95, no thanks!! I agree it looks ok for a comp gun but not for concealed carry!! I carry my 649 in my right front pocket in a Mika holster and this huge hook is a perfect snag waiting to happen at exactly the worst possible time. I think I'll pass on this one.

    Yepper, it's not cheap.
    High quality aftermarket gun parts are all pretty expensive though.

    Try building a 1911 with the best available aftermarket parts. You can easily drop $500 in one Brownell's order.

    You have 5-6 shots before you have to use it at all. Yep, it's cool. Yep, it looks neat. But until you see a Pro Revolver SD Trainer (Gunsite, Thunder Ranch, S&W Academy, etc.) with one on THEIR personal CCW? Pass.

    I'd be all over it....if it had a more snag free design....Maybe instead of the hook, make it more triangular or wedge shaped.....

    Should competition be training for real world CCW? I'm not interested in gadgets that can hang up, cause malfunctions and add confusion to the operation of tools your life could depend on.
