Default firestick mobile antenna on a handheld or backpack setup?

Would soldering a BNC connector to a short firestick or knockoff antenna make a good antenna for my handheld or would it not have enough loading to be used in the absence of a ground plane and burn out my radio or work worse? I might try and hook them up and compare reflected power on my meter when i get home this weekend but I rather do it now.
