    ouch, a hand-hit , the best way to shoot this one is finger support, like this<br><img src="http://melchiormenzel.de/pictures/info/info_grip_largefinger1.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br>

    <div>Shoot it finger support style, point the fork toward the target, and turn the pouch 90 degrees. You will never hit your hand or the fork again.</div><div class="clear"></div><div class="signature_div">

    Nice SS! <br>2X?<br><br>What's it made of?<br>and....<br>Anyone, that shoots this way, have thoughts on why the "turning the pouch 90* " makes a difference? Anyone worked out the physic's of what's happening? Or is it just coincidence and people are just not hitting themselves again because they are being more careful with flipping their hands down? Natural response to the pain imprint, from the hand strike, on the subconscious mind would be a small exaggeration of the flip down. Your brain's way of making sure the often inept "conscious" mind doesn't bullock's things up again.

    <div>Bert, I don't flip at all any more. I don't have to since I started turning the pouch. Also, angling the forks toward the target helps. I don't know the physics, but it definitely affects the pouch/ammo trajectory.</div><div class="clear"></div><div class="signature_div">
