from a damnd Gold Cup's rear sight corner, in an Arganbright cross draw rig, when I ducked under a low table in training for an assault course. I trained and sometimes competed, without a shirt, cause at very high speeds, I'd sometimes get a handful of shirt with the gun. The crossdraw tucked in pretty close to my body, and the scar makes me look like I"ve been knifed. :)

I also once fired a shot down and out the back of my pants, Mexican carry, due to snagging of a Colt 22 unit front sight, unmodified. I was doing a fast sales job on it. George Walden was timing me, standing back there, and I almost hit his foot. He did not notice, I confessed. wonder it didnt powder burn me.

Rounding corners and edges long ago became a big deal for me. Members of this forum saw a Star 380 that I worked-over, to that effect. I added metal to the butt, welded up a beavertail grip tang, added Kit gun sights and a 1911 style firing pin and retainer, aluminum grip panels, the left one very thin. But I could never get the altered magazine to feed reliably. Feds got in the way of my Smithing.:)

Members of this forum also saw the hardchromed .38 snub with the luminous sight inserts. I pinned a larger sight onto the front sight and cut a dovetail slot for the rear sight. Worked up a set of "boot grips" for it. 146 gr lead hydroshoks, 900 fps, would expand in critters, but weren't adequately controlable.

I'd say, stop shooting yourself! Your carelessness could get you killed.

My Wiley Clapp commander came with one of those belly rippers, first thing to go, ramped it real fast! Had a wide rear notch Knovak that had to be changed too.
