    <div>I decided to make a little pickle fork just for the heck of it. Is it better to shoot those hammer grip or finger and thumb support? Does it matter?</div><div class="clear"></div><div class="signature_div">

    what would be easier for you to flip it?
     

  3. I would think hammer grip (I'd be worried I'd shoot my beef fingers off, thumb and finger hang over too far on my PFS), but I'd have to see a pic to know for sure. You might have bigger forks and it will work with support grip (which I think is more accurate but not everyone may agree)

    @von_z2<br>ps making the thumb groove a little deeper can give some more comfort but i like it this way<br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=161&u=17316359" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i17.servimg.com/u/f17/17/31/63/59/imag0310.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=162&u=17316359" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i17.servimg.com/u/f17/17/31/63/59/imag0311.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br>@mikehunt, sure sounds great
     
  11. @Onod: Which? The trade for a blowpipe or the trade for a "Three Pillars" And are wrist braces legal where you live?

In fact it is only supported by the thumb so you got to have strong fingers to do so. But there is more chances to hit the thumb that way, it happened once to me because i didn' t flip that little ******* !<br>You can see it in action <a href="http://lance-pierres.geekaddict.net/t15-quelques-tirs-avec-le-pfs-ouvre-bouteilles-tourtel" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">HERE</a> .<br>PFS are great.</span>
