In the Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor Trade we see a lot of Gimmicks. Some of them look like gimmicks but are actually quite handy for certain specific tasks… while others look like they could be handy, but are actually really useless. The king of useless has to be the most persistent one.
I first heard of this guy way back in the very early days of “The Firing Line”. This gimmick was laughed off the board pretty quickly. He’s popped up now and again, here and there over the years… insisting that he has the true light and knowledge.
I don’t know his name, but I’ll call him “Finger Shelf Guy.” He emailed me asking for a link and I was nice to him, saying that this is counter to what I teach so I can’t do that. The guy bows out and I don’t hear from him again for a week. Then all the sudden he shows up on WETHEARMED with an all new video about how great the finger shelf is and how everyone else is wrong. Here’s the thread. Enjoy.
