    Painful lima!!!! Not the best improvized slide stop for sure!

    I have not had that happen but like so many have bitten a thumb real hard - M1A for one but the most deadly (IMO) slide/bolt in the world is on a Hakim - man that sucker hurts!

    This thread reminds me of the scene in the movie JAWS where everybody was comparing scars. Try shooting a scoped rifle in a REALLY heavy caliber for the first time and holding the scope too close to the eye. "Scope Bite" leaves a distinct cresent shaped wound that is unmistakable. I earned mine from a Winchester 458 Magnum.

    Still have the scar from a 30-30 scope...30 years ago! Never felt a thing, just took the shot and thought I was sweating...a ton of blood...

    Stay armed...away from the scope...stay safe!

    Scope Bite!! Haven't had the pleasure yet, but I saw it happen to another guy and I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy (while maybe, but let's not go there).

    Anyway, I can't remember what the guy was shooting but they call it "eye relief" for a reason. His eye started out WAY too close to the scope and when he pulled the trigger it was like he got hit in the forehead with a hammer.

    His head snapped back and blood went everywhere. It looked like someone just took a knife and cut his forehead. I couldn't see very clearly but I think he was crying as well.... ahhhh.. poor guy.

    That was a good scene in JAWS..

    One reason I wear a ballcap is because I've also had hot brass jump between my thick skull and my prescription eyeglasses. Then it's a case of finger off the trigger and rip the glasses off with the weak-hand, shake head and put the glasses back on...while cursing not too softly.

    Worst injury I ever got was firing a Walther PPK. I'd taken care to put adhesive tape over the back of my hand "just in case". Instead of slicing my hand as I expected, it rode the adhesive tape just fine....until the slide closed on a fold of skin, trapping it between the frame and back of the slide. The owner of the gun said I invented 21 new swear words. Fortunately the tape protected me somewhat but it hurt like a SonOfa**!

    Okay, I never did the dying my hair and piercing weird body parts, but I gave my poor parents enough trouble to where I've decided a girl like me would be a good thing only BEFORE her twelfth birthday and AFTER she hit twenty, in between are eight years of torture.

    You get those years!

    You know, those open slides on Berettas make getting part of your hand stuck between the slide and barrel really easy if you're not paying attention or your grip slips. Although, they don't have that "tang" on the barrel breech which is probably what cut your hand. I had the same thing happen to me last week while clearing the chamber for some dry-fire practice, caught the heel of my hand but didn't cut it. My brother thought it was really funny.
    On a side note, everyone who was in my practical shooting class ended up with bleeding thumbs after an ambidextrous course of fire that included switching from right to left hand firing. Apparently no one had thought of moving their right thumbs to the right side of their pistols while shooting left handed.

    LOL lima Mine was too many years ago to count , but i can still attest that the somewhat worn in this case fixed fireing pin on a colt SAA can penetrate a thumbnail if driven by a new spring .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .

    lol... I'll never forget those..

    Never had slide bite yet (knock on wood) but I've seen it. That space between the thumb and the finger can be painful. The worst I've ever had there is a paper cut.. that's about all I'll ever wish for.

    Yeah, yeah; all the new boys at SJMA eventually got one of those.

    Suggestion: Don't use peroxide. It kills the living cells and can actually cause more infection and slow healing. Use something like Neosporin or other antibiotic ointment.
