I used to do this as well, as a new ham.  And I would HIGHLY recommend people with whom I compete in contests!  It WILL deteriorate and 
cause problems over time.  Do it the right way...tin the braid, cut it 
with a tubing cutter, use silver plated connectors for easier solder 
flow, screw the connector body over the insulation for mechanical 
integrity.  Don't take shortcuts, you will regret it later.
