I could've slit my wrist with it.
That was my first exposure to the first strike also. I took one to the top of the bean first game of the day. The shell fractured and pinched into my hair and that sucker did NOT want to come out. Is it a safety issue...? I dunno... I'm gonna keep playing, anyway.
Also, since when does a DAM qualify for a Pumps & Pistols game???
