Initial thoughts:

1) Showing up to the range with one of these would be akin to coming home from work with a 'note from your boss' safety-pinned to your shirt.

2) Man Card? DENIED!

3) It could actually prove a useful tool to women with weaker hands, which I assume is the intended demographic.

4) I'll bet it deals out a black eye or two to newbie shooters.

Wow. I would be so embarrassed. Kind of like a handgun with training wheels.

Now that's the ticket!! What, you guys don't have one? I'd get one but just think black-on-black would get you into trouble with the PC police. I wonder, do they come other colors?

Handicapped shooters may find it useful. They also mentioned applications whereby the gun has a scope mount making access to the slide serrations difficult.

You could hang your guns up with cup hooks!
