I’ve been A Firefighter for many years (volunteerFF, seasonal wildland FF, and now a FF In a city Fire dept). I’ve had big problems with nails. What I do is keep my nails as short as possible, which I believe is good for accuracy and practice. When I can grow them out a bit, all the time spent with very short nails has made my accuracy very tight. Another thing I do at work is wear gloves whenever I can. The last is I try to use my left hand whenever I can. I’ve had guitars finger nails for so long now I’ve adapted well to always being very aware of them. The first three to four years I was breaking nails all the time and as time has passed with nails I break them much less now.
I did the same , getting into the habit of using my left hand for picking things up , opening doors etc . I started doing this after reading of Bream breaking a nail opening a door and how he changed hands . It took a lot of time to get used to but the rate of breaking nails dropped drastically .
