But unlike you I'm not laboring under the notion that it's necessary or even optimal. Is it?
I know for certain that one of the best ways to ruin a shot is to Putz with flow or pressure during a shot. Pressure or flow profile has a material effect on your output.
I'll try Sam's method of lumbering over the Cafelat like I'm shielding it from gun fire and see what I can muster. Lol
I think I'll remove the gauge from the arm since it hangs in such a way that I'll be able to see it if I'm in the "Sam strongman" position.
