Danger Close Consulting Handstop

You may remember our interview with Jon at Danger Close Consulting. In the interview he let the cat out off the bag about their upcoming handstop. This great looking handstop is available now!

You can read about Jon’s development process at his blog. It is interesting to see how he took the best from the few handstops that are already on the market and added a good bit of his own minimalist style to come up with what looks to be an excellent end product.

It has a bit of hook shape to help you generate some serious grip without the size and weight of a full size vertical grip (which most people use more like a handstop anyway). The edges are nicely broken and since it is constructed of hard anodized aluminum, it should be just about indestructible.

Check out the Danger Close Consulting site for more details and to purchase.

    I will have to try this product. Often in a fast, unexpected situation, we work by tactile touch with our motorskills memory developed through regular practice. And there may be a situation where moisture or other substances create a slippery grip and this will keep your hand in place and south of the muzzle.

      Handstops are often used to keep hands off muzzles on short barreled rifles. Now, because of how use of a vertical grip has evolved, people are using them the opposite way. They are used to pull the rifle back into the shoulder much the same way someone would use a vertical grip with a thumb forward grip. If the user is no longer going to wrap their hand around the vertical grip the vertical grip because basically just an overly large handstop. The extra bulk of the grip is not needed by some shooters. That is what Jon had in mind when he designed this one.
