My secretary tossed me my cell phone a minute ago and says:

"how come you catch things like that?"

"Like what," I says.

"You 'grab" things, but keep your pointer finger straight. You're catching with only 4 fingers."


"Huh, WTF, Meh!?" I say.

So she tosses my keys, and same thing.

Thinking about it, I wonder if its all the time spent with handguns. More often than not if my hand is in the "grab" mode, I've got the index finger straight and off the trigger.

Muscle memory?

The one observation I'll make is that when I was a youngster, one of my best friends' dads had the HK pistol with the squeeze cocker and I remember it taking a lot of work to remember to separate the trigger finger from the squeezing action the rest of the hand had to perform in order to make ready the weapon to fire. I never liked the gun because of that.

But now I wonder if I didn't wind up really training myself all those years.

Weird, eh?


ETA: Cool post number!

So here's a picture of my 9422!

I'm with you...
I index on all sorts of things - staplers, drills, even the hair drier...(for drying paint )

Do you at least keep your thumbs out of the steering wheel while driving?

Meh. I was a smoker for YEARS. I can steer with my knees like no other.

Cigarette smokers get really good at steering briefly with their knees as they fumble for smokes and their lighter. I never smoked in my car 'cept back in HS and part of college, but I always held the steering wheel with a knee, shrouded the cigarette with my left hand and lit it with my right.
