I've done it several times to a piece of metal in my hand. Until I
stuck my finger out and let it get hit. Not gonna do that again. 

I did start walking up to my larger coil when it putting out around 8'
arcs. It had stopped firing and I walked away from the camera towards
it. It arced again to the strike-rail when I was about 10' away. I
guess my brain had went to sleep, but this arc woke it back up. That
hit I took to the finger hurt bad enough, I'm glad I didn't close
enough to get hit this time.
