    Ever got "bitten" (pinched) by your gun?

    YEEEOOOWWW! It sure grabbed my attention, when my Kahr P380 decided to bite back. Hasn't happened in nearly 20 years. The P380 doesn't have a lot of room for both hands. My off hand was riding up a bit high, when the slide took a chunk of skin a spat it onto the ground. Huh, bone looks like that? Not exactly what I had thought would happen, today. Gotta love Bactine and Neosporin.

    Ask any German, Manhurin, or Interarms PPK or PPK/S owner...the little buggers will bite ya for sure! The new ones by S&W have a bigger beavertail to help with that ...but that's a whole 'nother story too.

    A couple times over the years with different weapons. They were never to the bone and they caused permenant readjustments to prevent further occurrences.

    Oh boy let me count the ways. M-1 thumb, Browning Hi Powers, G.I. 1911's, PPK's, Glock 18 and some others. I don't have huge hands or anything just shot a lot of different weapons in some really strange and different positions.
    Some were just the ergonomics of the weapons and other just got a hand or other body part in the wrong place at the wrong time.

    I had a customer of mine get bit pretty bad by my M&P. He somehow got his support hand over his other hand and it took a pretty good hunk of flesh.

    I've had a G27 take a chunk of skin off my finger before due to improper grip. I'm no worse for wear afterwards though :)

    Never happened to me because I always hold my weapon sideways gangsta-style. :)



    Seriously though, I never had the slide bite me because I tend to keep my support hand down low (I know not the best hold). Happened to a friend of mine though, he got a little papercut size scratch from a glock.

    My Glock 30 loves to nip my pinky on occasion when the magazine moves in relation to the handle and my skin gets stuck in-between.

    Since we're having true confessions, here goes:

    Prior to buying my G30, I'd shot a semi pistol only once, a highly accurized and customized 1911 many years ago. As you can imagine ... it was sweet. But I was a revolver man, mainly Ruger Blackhawks. So on my first shot with the G30, I grip it revolver style, thumb wrapped behind the "hammer." This old dog learned a quick lesson in semis. Needless to say, the slide ripped through the skin on the knuckle right to the bone. A few choice words mixed with snickers from my son followed. Fortunately I'm a quick learner and have done it again (yet).

    my g19 has gotten me twice...both times in idpa...i tend to start my shooting from the hip on cloes targets and raise to 2 handed as i progress...once i was bringing my suppport hand up as i was moving and shooting and the slide came back and smacked my thumb square...no cut but caused a stovepipe and a quick clear as i realized it right away...the other time my support hand was coming up and the slide just nailed me under the thumb nail as my thumb was moving forward...split the nail and i finished the course of fire with blood running down my hand and a battle cry of "*******!"...we all got a chuckle out of that one...
