    Handy Tip - Vinyl vacuum line caps are a creative way to dampen sharp edges and make hammers less “snag” prone. Caps cost pennies, and are available at most auto parts locations.

    Having one of those slip off while you're cocking the pistol is a ND waiting to happen.

    No thanks.

    Same here. Glad I took the chance. Might be worth a look.

    Heat shrink for electrical wiring would also work. Heat shrink for underground applications has epoxy in it. The phone man has plenty of outdoor/underground heat shrink in a variety of colors. Ask nicely, maybe bring him some coffee or tea according to weather would be enough for him to leave some scraps for you.

    18 months a member, first post. Welcome OleCW . . ..

    Appreciate tips, I'm on the fence with this one tho'

    I am one that would want to ensure that no ND, AD or TS* occurs if the hammer falls. I would prefer to debur any sharp edges before slipping a boner-balloon on the pin pounder of the primer-pricker

    *TS = Thumb Slip

    If I don't put hammer condoms on and my new 686 gets chummy with one of my striker fires will I end up with hammer less snubbies??

    Adding any thing to the hammer of a firearm is very questionable. No handgun should be carried in the pocket unless in a holster. Lint and dirt can cause a FTF.:(

    Gee, it's a good thing I am not a Mod here. My head would hurt every day, esp. when people here start calling ME a Leftist, which has happened 2X times now this month. I wonder if anyone slinging those nasty names around has ever Heard The Podcast??
