    Slippy hands!

    I posted about this a coupla years ago elsewhere but remembered it again.

    I got to thinking when relishing a good chunk of (greasy) KFC a while ago - how well I could if I had to to - draw and control gun, with effectively lubricant covered hands! Same might apply if working under the hood on car etc - just now and again - hands could be real slippy.

    The KFC ''solution'' is essentially prodigious use of napkins - lots of 'em - so that between each handling I wipe off. Just seems that it would be real ''Murphy'' to have this problem, just when not needed

    Gastronomic vulnerability

    Chris,

    Place the piece of chicken between the thumb and forefinger of the weak hand with the pinky in the raised position...no self respecting BG would ever attack during the gastronomic vulnerability with that pose.

    Best,

    Fred

    I thought I was the only person who thought about these kinds of things! Actually, I eat chicken pieces/wings/etc. with my left hand only, just for that reason. Going a bit further, I have to be in a pretty secure place for me to even carry anything in my right hand.

    Haha - well Fred that is something I have tried but - due to extreme slippy factor, it sometimes fails to maintain control over the chicken

    I do try to manage left handed but it's so much easier with both. Guess I'll continue to be profligate with napkin useage

    I couldn't resist on this one Chris...but more to the point, BGs don't care where you are or what you're doing if they think you're a viable/vulnerable target.

    Are you advocating "fried chicken control"??!!

    Great, next you'll be after our hotwings and ribs!! :P

    Knights of old wrapped the hilts of their swords with various materials so they could maintain their grip even when their hands were slick with blood... sharkskin and wire wraps were two popular ones. Perhaps we need sharkskin wrapped pistol grips.

    Slightly Off Topic.

    Well, concerning chickens...where I come from the wings gets tossed into the trash can right alongside the chicken feet.

    What?...you guys don't eat the chicken beaks too?

    Them there wings are the garbage part of the chicken and are not to be eaten no matter what sort of sauce gets slapped on those damn pitiful feather quill embedded skinny worhless things.

    Just my opinion on that.

    The entire world gets my lifetime share of chicken wings.
    Enjoy them folks. You all can have all of mine.
    Try not to choke on them.

    I try to avoid having both hands occupied at the same time. For example, when carrying bags of groceries, I only use my left hand. If I've got too much to carry in one hand, I use the cart so I can let go if neccessary. When it comes to eating "messy" food like fried-chicken or hot-wings I usually hold the food in my left hand, and use a fork with my right hand to avoid getting both hands greasy.

    If you carry in Condition 3, you have two empty chambers. One in the weapon...the other between your ears.

    Post Well Chris

    This is probably the very best forum opportunity that I'll ever have to shamelessly PLUG my new book. I hope that every forum member will go out and buy a copy.

    I don't usually get that messy eating. Also use of weak hand for many tasks , keeps my gun hand free.

    Thumbs up

    Chris...yep, I worked a full 30 minutes to get that book onto the web...I only have the front cover completed at this point in time though.

    Actually one of the reasons why I like non~checkered Ivory grips so much is that Ivory is the only natural material that has the unique property of not getting slippy when wet with water.

    I'm sure they would slide quite a bit if greasy though.

    QKShooter, put me down for a copy, too!

    I hate to admit this, but I'm sure none of you will tell . . .

    I eat all manner of greasy, slippery, messy foods with my weak hand only. I learned the fine art because I spend waaaay too much time on the computer and hate having to clean the mouse after every meal.

    Oh well, I had a life, once. . .

    Next time I go fishing, I'll see if I can land a shark. Might try wrapping some sharkskin around the G23's grips.
