    I’ve heard the term “gee gaw”, but never “goo gaw”. But enough baby talk.

      1. avatar William Burke says:

        Now I have. Must be a regional thing. My region being “Mid-Atlantic Piedmont”.

          Well, I’ve learned a new variant today. I’ve lived in Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Virginia, Wisconsin, and Illinois, and I’ve never seen it spelled that way.

          Still don’t see much use for the goo gaw, gee gaw, or whatever it is. . .

        2. avatar William Burke says:

          I think it’s for the “gun nut” who has everything. Christmas is coming.

          It’s for that hard-to-please gun guy on your shopping list. Chances are, he’ll still be unpleased, though.

    Meh… I’m trying to figure out what problem this solves, exactly. Maybe I’m missing something?

    I just know that my laser-engraved Magpul trigger guard works just fine and looks damn classy.

    1. avatar William Burke says:

      I think it clearly solves the problem of an absence of it.

      1. avatar (Formerly) MN Matt says:

        While I’m always open to improvement, I’m just a bit hesitant and suspicious to drop coin on a product to fix a problem I didn’t even know I had. Call me a cynic, I guess.

        1. avatar William Burke says:

          I’d call you “practical”.

    2. avatar Jay Wolf says:

      AH really, it’s an AR not an AK. If you need this to help you load an AR magazine you have many more issues that need attention that this silly thing can’t fix.

    3. avatar Taylor Tx says:

      Not necessarily a problem but, to try and make your reload FASTER kind of an improvement item. But I agree with above, if your reloads are that much of an issue, the trigger guard is kind of like a gnat on the side of an aircraft carrier.

    Another in a loooooooooong list of AR widgets and doohickeys that I cannot believe we ever did without.

    Plastic reinforced plastic!
    Guides you in!!
    Touch it with your finger?!
    Did we mention it guides you in? We did? Crap, uh…
    The finger… damnit let’s see
    No substance to it whatsoever! !!

      That could be a contraceptive commercial.

  5. avatar bo says:


    Seems like a waste of money.

  6. avatar Southern Cross says:

    When I used an AR-15 in service competition, we had a match at 200 metres from the sitting position called “The Rapid Deployment Match”. We would shoot 5 single-snaps at a Figure 11 target, put the gun down, run back 5 metres to pick up another magazine, run back to the firing point, and reload for the next set of 5 target exposures. And this was done in 15 seconds. I never had a problem with reloading the AR-15 in those circumstances.

  7. avatar Aaron Bailey says:

    What I want to know is….does the “fang” sticking out make it incompatible with Magpul M3 Pmags due to the overinsertion stop?

    1. avatar neko says:

      not compatible.

      1. avatar Aaron Bailey says:


  8. avatar tfunk says:

    Do they make a left-handed version?

  9. avatar Defens says:

    Does it render the firearm invisible to x-ray or porn-o-scan?

  10. avatar DB Cooper says:

    At least they made it be able to accept a gloved finger tip

  11. avatar The Bull Lion says:

    What the company failed to mention is that this is a “braille” trigger guard…you know….for all those blind AR-15 owners that Piers Morgan was whining about.

  12. avatar Nayra says:

    Solution looking for a problem.

  13. avatar Sebastian says:

    Yet another useless gizmo put out by the gun industry. This solves absolutely nothing and it’s a waste of money.
