    Yeah, not really comfortable with that idea. Think of all the lawsuits due to the aforementioned NDS against law enforcement agencies if they used them on their guns.

    That's one of those ideas that might look good on paper but in practical application leaves alot to be desired.

    heres a hint....Just cary a glass breaker with you. Either in your service car or on your duty belt. No need to escalate things with a drawn gun. It is a good idea to supply law enforcement with easy entry to a window but not with a firearm lol....maybe they could put one on the end of the Asp/Baton.

    Doesn't look too promising. Maybe incorporate into a baton or something lacking bullets.

    I can see car-jackers thinking that this is the best thing since oppressive gun legislation.

    I think the idea here is to provide a method to break the glass when an officer already has their pistol pointed in, not for this to be the officer's primary glass breaking tool for every situation.

    Wow. I think this is one of those ideas that looked really stupid on paper and unbelievably stupid in prototype.

    Someone has one out that replaces the floorplate on a Glock magazine and has a metal cone on the bottom.

    Everything must be taken in its context

    For a very narrow application, I can see it being useful. SWAT applications and such, we do a lot of extraction stuff on vehicles. Other than that, yeah its a bad idea.

    I haven't seen the guide-rod glass breaker before. I do recall seeing one for sale somewhere that was supposed to attach to a Glock accessory rail.
