I've managed to whack myself in the nuts with the gun handle of my LW3 several times.
I was helping with the load-in at PPE a few years ago and almost dropped one off the truck ramp. The ramp was swaying badly and I could feel that I was starting to lose it so rather than try any macho stuff I just started yelling HELP HELP HELP and four guys came running. Unfortunately, they started righting it in the wrong direction so now it was widebody + four people against me. OTHER WAY! I yelled.
We got it down safely, and the documentary crew filmed the whole thing. I figured I was destined for internet embarrassment after that. To counteract the game and four people I shouldered into the game and got all scraped up. My right arm was black and blue from my shoulder to my wrist.
The following year I ran the tournament and when I showed up, Special Force was being held together with clamps in the tourney room. It was being glued back together after being dropped.
Lol at hitting yourself with the gun. What are you doing over that far lol.
Ok, I'm definitely not whining about a caloused thumb after hearing your story jonyo... that must have been one nasty looking bruise!
The gun sticks out so much farther than a regular plunger. So just imagine, people are over, you're playing a 4-player game, you've had a few drinks, you try to slide out of the way for the next player and...
