Was removing my duke 330s from a job I just completed. Picked up the trap by springs and put safeties back on. Grabbed the trap and released the dog. It fired. One of the safeties came off. Got me just behind my thumbnail. Was able to pull it out. Scared the dickens out of me, but wasn't that bad.

I do that for Friday night chuckles...

Saturday mornings aren't funny, though.

Little sore, but I think my gloves helped. Just a little discoloration right now.

I still have a bone chip floating around in my right thumb from an old Victor 25 years ago.

Just ask beaverpeeler about the Belisle club, he renews his membership a couple times each season.

I did that just once, and then became a big believer in the safety grippers. The only problem with them is remembering to remove them when your done setting.

I learned to take my time while setting a 330 of any kind. Oh, yeah, and safety grippers are a must.

Welcome I joined the 330 club last week. 3 finger tips. Welded a baker to a rr plate and tested it. Didn't notice 1 safety was off ! Talked to myself for awhile .

But if he had a Belisle, one of the safeties wouldn't have came off.
