The XD guys are at it again:

That thing is called the “Sul Sling”.Ā  If you’re unsure what it does or how it works, I literally couldn’t make this up… this is pasted directly from their website:

The SULĀ® SlingĀ offers unsurpassed comfort and versatility for maintaining quick hands free positive weapons retention for any full framed or smaller side arm.

Tactical readiness while behind the wheel of a vehicle is now faster than ever before. The patent pendingĀ SULĀ® Sling and SULĀ® Stick afford a level of rapid weapon deployment unavailableĀ until now. Utilizing a patent pending system of rare earth magnets the SULĀ® Stick holds any standard size frame sidearm in SUL while in a vulnerable seated position. The SULĀ® Sling is capable of 40 pounds of perpendicular hold making it the most versatile weapons retention device ever created.

Utilizing NanoSphereĀ®technology, theĀ SULĀ® Sling is impervious to water, mud, UV rays, dirt, metal filings and virtually anything thrown at it.

AllĀ SULĀ® branded products are designed to keep you Ready In PositionĀ®. When seconds count, seconds count. Nothing affords a faster draw in a vehicle under an ambush than theĀ SULĀ® Sling.

100% MADE IN THE USA

Ok thenšŸ˜† … One of my pet peeves is when people use Ā® when in fact they should be using TM.Ā  Yea I get it, you’re probably trying to impress someone… but when a guy like me that isn’t an idiot looks the wordmark up and sees that you indeed do not have a registered trademark, then it’s just one more thing I add to the derp list.Ā  At least it’s not quite the egregious VODA use of the sacred Ā®… this SUL guy does have an application in, which is “almost” approved at the moment (US Serial number 88625320).

I can’t stress enough, how much you should buy two of these (because two is one and one is none) and defend the flock.Ā  They are on sale right now for a meager $75, down from the usual $90 on the Sul Tactical website. This is the future of carrying a gun… these guys are obviously living in 2092.

On a related note, it took about 12hours but these guys blocked me from seeing their page on Instagram. That’s such a 2008 thing to do, but to each their own. You guys might be surprised to hear that it doesn’t happen much at all anymore. Typically even the guys / companies I roast the most end up thanking me because a) they have a sense of humor about themselves, and b) the post made them money.

Thoughts?

Oh wowĀ šŸ¤”… a belt clip with a long magnet that you shove in your pants and stick a gun to.Ā  *slow clap* Now you can incorporate a magnet into your brilliant Mexican carry.Ā  What could POSSIBLY go wrong?

This came to me as a mass email which I’m assuming was sent to all gun blogs.Ā  I did a deep sigh when Brandon (the guy from Idea Buyer who emailed me about this), called me an “influencer in this space” and offered to send me some samples to review.

Yo you guys gotta check out this “PrEsS ReLeAsE”:

Now available for sale, MagneCarry has changed the way firearms are carried concealed. Unlike traditional gun holsters that can be bulky and easy to spot, MagneCarry is lightweight and unobtrusive.

A less expensive replacement for standard holsters, MagneCarryā€™s canvas-covered magnet clips onto a belt, waistband or pocket. The user simply places their firearm flush against MagneCarry and magnetic force creates fixed placement. The productā€™s slim profile allows for more secure and less noticeable firearm carrying. At less than 8 inches (19 cm) long it adds minimal weight to the users frame and allows for quicker, more agile movement. MagneCarry is the perfect firearms accessory for law enforcement officers as well as military and government personnel. Remember the FBI agent that did a backflip? If only he had been using MagneCarry!

For unobtrusive firearm concealment, MagneCarry is the solution; a lightweight magnetic gun attachment meant to replace traditional gun holsters.
ļ‚· Easy to use
ļ‚· Discrete concealment
ļ‚· Slim profile
ļ‚· Lightweight and comfortable Multi-use
In partnership with Idea Buyer LLC., MagneCarry will be available for purchase on
Friday, December 7 th on Amazon for $21.99.

Initial inventory is expected to sell out quickly!

Fellas…

Idea incubator businesses likeĀ IdeaBuyerĀ (the place that developed this) are definitely interesting.Ā  I couldn’t imagine being one of those people low on the totem pole there.Ā  If ideas like this one in the post somehow make it to development, can you imagine all the ones that they have to filter out?Ā  I can see it now… A piehitter working on submitting his 5th idea, trying to get the wording right in the email… how to accurately describe a “training system” with a physical product consisting of an all-in-oneĀ treadmill with attached ratchet wrench wacker and bungee cords.Ā  He can’t get the grin off his face as he pounds the keys he’s going to be so damn rich once it takes off.

You kings dropping $22 on one of these holster alternatives, and throwing your other holsters in the trash where they belong?Ā  Remember Magnecarry is the perfect firearms accessory for law enforcement officers as well as military and government personnel.Ā  I’m kind of choked there was no Navy SEAL endorsement… oh well give it some time.

Tactical TunesĀ x Vigilant Spectre:

Those are TACTICAL AS _ _ _ _.

ICP-MagnetsOperators be like “BUT BUT it will magnetize my gun and cause it to malfunction because of tiny metal filings stuck to the internals!” Ā Valid concern? Ā I doubt those magnets have the strength to do anything crazy, but I also only have my Bachelors in Magnet Science, not my PhD.

Available over at Tactical Assault Gear “The Operators Choice” <— LOL it actually says that. Ā Priced from $28 to $50 depending on how many pouches you want.

Thoughts?

I love when people re-purpose items rather than just throwing them in the garbage. Tom Schaefer did exactly that with an old computer hard drive, by removing the magnet and screwing it into the wall for quick access to his handgun:

Tom’s blog – HERE

If I was planning on removing the gun on a regular basis i’d definitely put a piece of plastic ( cut out of a milk jug? ) or something over top of the magnet before I screwed it down, so it wouldn’t scratch the gun.

There are a couple of commercial options available when it comes to gun magnets:

But I’d still make my own, considering FREE beats $20 – $30 any day.

In the gun community there seems to be opposing viewpoints on whether or not the gun will becomeĀ magnetizedĀ and possibly induce failure. I have no personal experience on the topic, but I don’t think it would be out of the realm of possibility for some parts to become magnetized and collect bits of lead and other metallic dust we are used to cleaning out of our dirty pistols. Ā The idea of that doesn’t really thrill me, but I’d have to try it out for myself to see if it actually is an issue.
