Hi folks! It seems that ridiculous polls are the theme lately so I thought join the fun & try one of my own, here goes :D

Whenever you take out one of your lasers to mess around with or show it off to someone,
which of these methods do you use when generally handling that laser??

Option 1 - dart tosser



Option 2 - the detonator



Option 3 - the taco holder



Option 4 - 2 handed charlie


All answers are public, multiple choices allowed. If there's another method you use not demonstrated above please let me know, maybe we can add it. Thanks for playing! ;)

I handle mine rough. I think someone once told me its called "choaking the chicken" or something :thinking:

I usually do hold detonator style but if its side click, I usually hold it two different ways. It depends how I pick it up.

I didn't want to include forward clickies in the poll because dont we all use them the same? I call that one the thumb wrestler but if there's another way..... :crackup:

Nice hehe... those two different ways have to be a 2 hand charlie or a thumb wrestler, just guessing though :D

Where's the option for holding it between your teeth and using you tongue to activate the clicky? :p

Hehe only just went to the dentist yesterday, probably shouldn't break any teeth on the laser just yet.

Although, when I'm holding a laser, usually I hold it like a pencil, but detonator style if it has a back clicky :p

Mix of Detonator and Two-handed, depending on what the situation calls for.

And how heavy the host is.

I always love to have a thumb ready at clicky switch, so I can turn it off faster than you can blink, to avoid "sh*t happens" scenario.

Mostly two handed. I wouldn't think what a clumsy person could do with one hand on the laser.
