They look really cool and I might be tempted to buy one. Problem is that the advertising promises modularity and different tools, part combinations etc, however, a search did not reveal a website of their own. So, I couldn't figure out how to get a decent idea of what all they offer? Just random sellers who carry limited buckles of theirs...where do you buy accessories and what are they?

The point escapes me entirely.

The point is just because. My wife doesn’t think I need as many guns as I have, but I do. I’m was just curious if anyone had any experience with them. The money seems steep I just wonder if it’s worth it. They have a Facebook page that I follow and some other accessories I’m interested in.

I don't see what the practical advantage would be and personally think it's f ugly as all get out. Might get a little attention towards your man parts, if you're so inclined.
Other than that, it's also kind of expensive.
Might want to use some Loctite on all those fasteners too.

I'm one of those people who will, sometimes, buy something just on a whim, but this doesn't seem to have any practical use over a regular buckle and the price for one of these seems pretty outrageous.

It can only be "worth it" if it impresses the owner. Most of us won't look and on me I couldn't even see it.

Exactly, what does this do that a regular buckle doesn't?

It lightens your wallet considerably. A regular buckle doesn't.
