Sliding wooden bar for attaching lanyard to belt.
Guess that depends. If you're in the field, yeah.Why? In military I wouldn't use a lanyard . Even as a MP . Just something to get tangled up with . I want nothing attached to my handgun
What about for your keys or a camera or a bottle of water or maybe your swiss army knife?I was sitting here trying to figure out what a lanyard was for. Then I realized that it attaches your gun to you belt. No thank you.
Now I think the little thing the OP made is cool and would have lots of utility for things like hauling a kayak or the like. I don't want it on my gun though.
