Anybody ever jam any handparts in the pgp, between the co2 knob (stock) and the pump handle, usually that spot between the thumb and index finger, there is almost no clearance there, blisters and cockerbite can't compare to that pain.

The only thing I can possibly think of is getting a finger pinched in a pump stroke, or maybe a 'cocker ram. But of course I'm totally off aren't I?

What's he talking about?



And to anyone who hasn't seen his video, here is it:

Interesting. I thought the index scar was from repeatedly getting shot in the finger while you pumped it. Or from a really non-ergonomic pump handle.Or lastly... From shooting yourself as your hand slipped off a slick pump.

This is one of those things that would get lost to time if not for MCB.

Tis real simple. Because I just watched​ that video yesterday. Twas odd to have come across the answer today. Also, I acquired a project Nel-Spot fairly recently. I really had no idea there was such a thing as a Nelson Finger.

I found it interesting enough to comment upon because the true answer was so far from my assumptions.

Some of you guys know this lore like i know my way around town. I will never have your same level of knowledge... Especially with such a widely varied subject base.

Yes, I need to get a life.

I think I discovered the origin of that myself when I got my first Nelspot. Cocking that little knob is tough on the fingers, but more so the repetitive cocking burnishes the slot in the 007 body, which makes the edges razor sharp over time and will slice up your finger if you don't bevel it off or wear gloves.

Some scarring on the webbing on the right thumb also would indicate heavy 007 use.
