    I could cry.

    So looking forward to son being home and doing some extended shooting with him and Biker. Got home from work early, "helped" out in the kitchen and was washing dishes, cut my trigger finger to the bone (literally) with brand new super sharp knife. Too cheap for stitches and too busy for the emergency room. Bled like a stuck pig for almost an hour. Pass the gauze and super glue.

    Pour peroxide on it and you'll be okay.

    Trigger Finger Injury -
    You need to "Bite The Bullet" and promptly spill Alcohol on that and then properly cauterize the wound by pouring lots of Gunpowder into the wound (preferably Black Powder but, Smokeless will suffice) & touching a lit match to the powder.

    And Presto! Like Magic....you're back to being able to shoot again....with your other hand.

    Yep, good opportunity here to work your skills with the weak hand.

    Hopefully you also have a "get out of kitchen" pass good for a few weeks!

    That should help shorten the 'honey do list'...if ya' milk it the right way.
    We all need weak hand practice, and it looks like it's time for you.

    If you are going to super glue or cauterize that wound, make sure you get it deep enough.
    A CCW is like a parachute; if you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again.

    Wrap it up with a big gauze then put a Magpul MOE trigger guard on your AR and shoot away.

    If you cut it THAT deep you find nerve damage when it's well enough to move around. Also, deep wounds tend to heal on the outside before the inside. If stitched from the inside out it changes that. I say this because I did the same many years ago only to have the doctor cut it back open and do it right 3 weeks later.

    Just rub some dirt on it and walk it off. I see this is a great opportunity to learn to shoot weak handed.

    A few years ago, my dad cut his shooting finger trying to cut a slice of one of those Pepperidge Farm Summer Sausages during the holidays and ended up having to have a stitch or two.
    History repeated itself the next year - yup, trying to cut a slice of sausage but no stitches.
    The next year and going forward, dad isn't allowed near the knives during the holidays!

    Hope it heals up well & quick so that you're back to the range in no time!

    Yup,yup & yup. Friend emailed and asked about last time I had tetanus shot. Hmmmmm. So off to Urgent Care around five today. Four stitches and a shot later. I am milking the honey-can't list. Gotta be careful and not get caught rewiring speaker system. Also, weak handed really is not a bad idea. Seriously. Oh, nurse said little chance of tenanus howeve, it is 100% curable and 100% lethal. No need to go cheap on that one.

    DUO, made a glue for skin years ago.... don't know why they changed the name and use, but it's now sold as an false eyelash adhesive for women, but it works great on gluing skin together.
