    This is not my finger... came across this today. Apparently his finger got in the way of his auto-progressive reloader... Made me cringe...

    Pic makes me feel like I've been punched in the stomach. Educational, though.

    I'd say that wouldn't be a terrible idea. Looks like he took a core sample of his finger though... I want to see him flip someone off now.. He has a built in peep sight for precision aiming.

    Ouch! I thought even progressive you still has to drop the Ram. Glad I am just too poor and stuck with a single stage.

    On a finger? Unless it's the pointer where the vein is (even then) would I worry about significant blood loss. I would only leave it in and swing by the ER only if I was worried there'd be further damage by pulling it out or it caught the bone. Not much they'd really be able to do other than clean it out and give you pain meds.

    I'd be more worried about that live primer.
