Couple of nice scratches on the case, but still worked fine.
I use a technique that makes "drawing" my BB from the OEM plastic holster easy and flawless . . . by pressing on the battery cover notch with my middlefinger while pulling the BB up. . . most of my users start out by pulling the BB from both sides, which I know is stiff and awkward. . . but with practice, you think that these guys are out West ready for a gunfight at the OK Corral...
