Also, if for some reason, you don't have the use of your weak hand, it facilitates recharging the pistol with just one hand. I wouldn't omit it, it's far more handy than detrimental.
All good points, so I'm leaving it in. I plan to order another, to bend it in closer to the frame.
thanks for writing
