    Sorry to hear about the injury. Do they have any plans for treatment, etc?

    I know you don't believe in it but I will say a prayer that your hand heals quickly.

    The drill is the nero guy gave me shocks in the hand. Then they took an MRI. Then a cortazone shot.
    I wear the brace often. Typing can be a challenge.
    I am writing letters with my left hand, and throwing a tennis ball and catching with my right.
    I am using the grip device on the left hand to make it stronger.

    I am giving the right hand a rest.

    No shooting pistols except for the target 22 in the right hand.

    I am trying with the left, but my aim is not so good.

    It will all work out.

    Thanks for asking.

    Some folks have had some success with acupuncture, and some with PT. Keeping an attitude of "I'm going to beat it" goes a long way too. Maybe a good pair of padded palm shooting gloves may help you when you are ready. Best of luck to you.

    Sorry to hear that this has become an issue for you. I have numbness in my right hand from years of working with air powered impact tools in the automotive repair industry. I type most of the time now for work so it makes it worse.

    Like stated above look at it like a challenge and overcome and adapt.

    Peace...
    You can give peace a chance alright..

    I'll seek cover in case it goes badly..

    Dammit.
    Now the secrets out.
    I didn't wanna come out and say what the numbness was caused by.
    When I went to church as a lad, the preacher said it was a sin. How did he know I was doing that?

    BTW,

    The doctor said, using the other side is most permissible. He said "enjoy"

    Well we both know how those church guys are, and how they like to watch little boys...

    Placing one of my carry firearms in it's Nemesis pocket holster in the left pocket felt strange. If I carry the semi auto, the safety is now on the wrong side.

    I remember one instructor making it a big deal to learn how to shoot with the off hand. I really didn't take much stock in what he was saying at the time. Now, his wisdom is hitting home.

    Perhaps it was all those 30.30 rounds in the T/c Condender. Thousands of 45 ACP rounds.

    This sucks.
    I feel for ya! I have a right thumb that snaps and pops alot, according to my doctor, because of too many rounds down range. It also swells up a bit at times.
