    I was thinking the same thing. Personally I'd rather have someone else holding it for me. My bad. :no :shakehead :11doh:
    I give no quarter and take none.

    I use a "hands free" model. It's rolled up in my BCD pocket.

    You've got me beat.

    I hold mine at the bottom of a big rubbermaid bin in my "dining" room.

    In my goodie bag if on a tech ocean dive.
    In my dive bag if assisting with an OW class.
    In the basement with my pool gear when doing regular dives.

    If demonstrating snorkelling techniques for an OW class in pool, I hold it with my palm over the purge valve so I can clear it with a gentle exhale during my ascent.

    LOL! The dude deserves this. Hope he sees it.
