I think the poll specifically mentions "barrel mounted" windicators. I'm not sure I want it attached to the barrel and I'm not convinced they help much either. Nevertheless, if they become legal, I can see a market opeining up.
I have wondered about the legality of using other implements that are not attached to the gun. For a while I carried with me a pocket plumb-line for use on sloping ground. Nothing wrong with carrying a small pocket flag/feather is there?
