    I'm in the market for a tactical beverage entry tool and I'm leaning toward the LaRue model LT-205. Before I place the order for what may be one of the most important tools in my arsenal, I need some feedback from the professionals. How durable are these things? How's the fit and finish and does it wear quickly? Those of you who carry them, what's your preferred method? I appreciate your help regarding this important decision.

    I prefer a blade type speed opener as an ex-bartender.. but this is much more tactical!
    Armadillo butt opener = win

    The openers are expensive. The last one I bought cost $200.

    But they threw in a hat and one of their excellent mounts for free

    I have one you can have for free.

    I use the handle from a corkscrew, so I don't need mine. They come free with every order, and Mark LaRue usually gives me a couple at the SHOT Show every year.

    They could've added a screwdriver to that or a ninja death-spike or something...
