    Aside from the Fobus, does anyone know of any holsters that will fit that ...appliance?

    If I wanted a rail I would go buy another gun. If I wanted a plastic gun I would go buy a glock hahaha

    I've seen way worse things done with a gun but $50 is too much for "for funsies".

    A rail is an attempt to answer a training problem with a hardware "solution", and since the problem can be corrected by training, it doesn't exist in the first place.

    Fishing lures aren't designed to catch fish, they're designed to catch fishermen.

    This product is a fishing lure.

    Don't point a light on a rail at a cop. Really.

    You'll only do it once.

    About as useful as muffler bearings or turn signal fluid.

    Pretty much nailed it with this. The would go right along with that tactical 30-30 tho.

    Very innovative.
    It allows a user to better equip his platform for a particular use.

    I.e.. modularity.

    While it may not suit some, to others with limited income but the need for HD whom may not be able to purchase another firearm they can install this and equip a light if they so choose.

    Lights aren't for me. But its (the grip/rail system) still a cool idear.

    I am not really a fan of this mostly because I don't think that grip looks very comfortable.....just my opinion.

    Looks to me like it's another solution in search of a problem. However, I bet this solution leads to other problems. Like the need of a new (and likely) custom holster dedicated for that and that only.

    I think it would be incredibly useful, and more likely than not I will own one soon.
