    I don't have small hands, but I generally feel more comfortable using my middle finger to manipulate the 3rd valve slide. Works for me, might work for you.

    Thanks guys, will continue to work and I think I might try my middle finger out, it is a lot stronger than my third

    Keep Working Andrew

    Thanks

    If your ring is an adjustable one, this discussion is rather useless. Just for the record, I use my ring finger. Just find what works for you - change the position of the ring, change the finger which operates it, trigger, lipping - there are so many options.
