    This a device that lets you feel if the trigger is being pressed during re-holstering.
    Seems like a good idea, what do you think?

    If you are married to using a Glock and not a traditional hammer-fired pistol, it's something worth considering. Maybe nice to have, but not a must have for everyone.

    I will admit I was one of the early adopters through Indiegogo because I was interested in using it when I make the change to appendix IWB carry. Having shot about 300 rounds through my G19 I noticed:
    - There's no added weight to the trigger pull (or at least I didn't notice it). I was pleasantly surprised by that.
    - If you're used to holstering with your thumb-on-the back of the slide, now you'll definitely get some feedback if there's something stuck in the trigger guard.

    I just saw this too, interesting the guy says it's all over the forums. I'm on a number of forums and never saw it until now :-)

    I'm wondering if it could create another point of failure, especially if exposted to dirt/sand/mud. But can't tell from what I've seen.

    It's a creative thought though, I'm impressed with that.

    All weapon platforms only have one safety, and that's the one that God gave you to start with, your brain connection to your finger.

    Ya. If I roll around places that you said-- sand/dust/dirt/mud/snow/ice -- not sure if I'd take a chance using it. I'm guessing we'll see some torture tests on the internet eventually.
    This'll be a like-it or hate-it device. I'll try and post some pics over the weekend. Might not be cohland quality, though...

    Sounds like a good idea. Although I practice, when I re-holster IWB I always have a little feeling in my stomach until my Glock is fully into the holster because I can't actually see the gun entering the mouth of the holster.

    $79 before shipping seems a little high.
