    Does anybody remember the name of that integrated weapon light or laser that was activated by pulling the trigger half way? It was for rifles iirc.

    Surprisingly enough from Safariland, the weird pistol light designed to be attached and detached when one was in harm's way.

    The Phazzer Enforcer seemed to have some potential and perhaps still does, but some of the non-ECD cartridges (pepper blast, pepper ball, impact round) were pretty goofy. I was unimpressed when the company wouldn't tell me about the eye safe distance of the pepper blast.

    The goofy runner's chest pouch from 10-24 products

    Again, from a usually reliable source, the go-bag from Calibre Press that didn't seem to have any method of carry other than one's hand.

    The SIG 32o. (Sorry, sorry, couldn't resist.)

    Tbh, those were simpler times and I kinda miss them.
    The best thing about the zombie craze was being able to pick up 500 .308" 110 grain Z-Max bullets for $30 on clearance.

    This is probably the most depressing PF thread I've seen in awhile.

    I think there's been a handful of these offerings on the market. Call it a "suicide holster". At least it's a self-resolving problem.

    Anything that’s a magnet pretending to be a holster.

    Especially but not limited to the one from a few years ago that was intended for IWB carry. I haven’t looked it up but it was a huge magnet you clipped inside your pants and stuck a pistol on. Like a Versa Carry with extra steps.

    Edit - also the Versa Carry. Also also, I would include the Urban Carry thing as a variation of the magnet schlock.

    Did anyone mention the stupid thing that let you put your trigger finger along the side of the frame so you could 'naturally' point the gun?

    Or the magazine pad bayonet, invented by the person who watched "Equilibrium" too many times.
