There are plenty of accessories that make us scratch our head. Rail mounted tactical testicles comes to mind. But then there are some accessories that are just plain dangerous. This would be one of them. The premise behind this accessory is for the gentleperson shooter using a single shot break action or double barreled shotgun in a sport like trap or skeet. Or a hunter who is too lazy to actually hunt anything and has people and dogs to flush birds to the shooter. In either scenario there is a lot of down time. So shooters get complacent and rest the barrel of the gun on their shoe. This accessory will help keep your shoe from getting dirty. Since the guns are single shot and typically left open they are rationalized as being safe to flag oneself. However this does violate one of the firearm safety rules. Always keep your firearm pointed in a safe direction. Your foot is not a safe direction.
