I just sent Trapset a Thankyou PM the other day for making the One Hand setter. I joined the 330 Belisle club a couple weeks ago, While in a rush I didn't have my safety or my setter trying to clean fragmighty out of the trigger,I slipped on the icy log and it bite me just above the wrist, luckily my wife was within ears distance to bring me the RTS setter. I'm glad she was there to help but if she wasn't I never would have told her what happened.

The more experienced you get the less cautious you become i find! I think getting caught by the wallet would be funnier to see lol.

He’s right. Had it been a Belisle, you wouldn’t have been in the same situation. Belisles are the safest trap I own.


Glad you made it out though.

No, the safeties would have been off even on a belisle, because I was in the process of placing the trap. I was three feet up on the bank and wouldn't be able to reach the safeties once placed.

If that was me with my luck at the exact time I'm crawling across the ground a school bus full of teenagers would have rolled by with them all taking pictures on their phones, the local volunteer fire department would of been out on a training day and PETA would of showed up to take pictures on how dangerous traps are!!

Glad your okay

I too have been a recipient of a 330 on the foot. ALWAYS when I am using the tall stands in deeper runs. I set the 330 with the trigger on the bottom and I will put my foot on the top jaw to push the stabilizer down. I guess call me graceful!!!!!!!!! Always glad they weren't magnums or Belisles. Nonetheless it still hurt!

Thanks for the confession. Yours was a accident, most of mine resulted from stupidity.
