What?  You didn't look all the way back to...uh, a week or two ago?
I'm pretty damn sure this was discussed.


That won't work.  And you already have held, so use it rather than
GET_EQ(ch, WEAR_HOLD).  You want to get the type of held to see if
it's ITEM_WEAPON.  That is, GET_OBJ_TYPE(held) == ITEM_WEAPON.

Why?!  If you've already used GET_EQ(ch, WEAR_HOLD) [held], you can't
get here without it being != NULL -- at least, not without it crashing
before that line.

Then remove it. :)
