I speak of course of this not-at-all ridiculous piece of engineering:
It's designed so the gun doesn't push out of battery if you were to press it into the body of an assailant. Apparently. Looks like the Mad Max Meat Mallet to me. This is a complete farce, right?
In my unenlightened opinion, not only do I think that shooting properly from retention would completely eliminate the possibility of this happening, but pressing your gun against someone else's body is just begging to have it taken away, meat tenderizer attached to the front or not. It seems like it's just another ridiculous, expensive hardware solution to a non-existent software problem.
I haven't had the opportunity to take an ECQC or similar course though, so any veterans of such please educate me on the usefulness of such a dongle.
Apparently it's discontinued anyway, but I am genuinely curious. And if anyone intends to bring it back under the Mad Max Meat Mallet brand name, I demand royalties
