No offense taken, I like to try new things and have very "thick" skin. Ha. You will notice its not permanently attached. There is about 2-3 inches of barrel support under the metal portion of the carbon barrel=no droop. Tension barrels are very rigid.
The gun is a 17M2 so I wanted the extra ammo with it so I could just grab it
and go, walking, in the pickup, or whatever. My belt seems to be permanently occupied by my multi-tool.
