Trying to figure out my life from a self-defense standpoint now that I have a gimp hand. Long story short: I was moving a 350lbs barrel with grease on my gloves and I slipped and caught the clamp. Sliced the tip of my index off and tore half of the nails of the remaining fingers off. Would you fight through the pain or switch to weak-side? Good news is the doctor said I repositioned my "finger flap" excellently.
