Yes probably!,I retired from shooting due to a knackered shoulder rightly, sold up all my guns, but recently got a Colt 1911, then @ the weekend bought a rifle !!, saw it in a shop fancied it even though its the wrong calibre .22, & certainly Not FT grade :? but i just fancied it & bought it & cos it was cheap " they lost the box", and have to admit i've got a big grin from shooting it even though my shoulder hurts like hell, & my 70 years + bones hurt like hell getting up @ down to shoot, yeah i've lost my marbles. :oops: :) mike. "Oh its a Swiss Arms TG1 (tan colour).

Hee hee!!

I pulled something in my right shoulder a few months ago then a few weeks ago I chopped a large Hawthorne down in my garden setting it off again!!, Can't put my arm out sideways or I get a piercing pain at the top outer edge of my shoulder!, I've not tried my Theoben Fenman since but I reckong it'll be screaming at me when I do!! :cry:

Brrr, lost em again, not shot the TG1 for a couple of weeks so tried some back garden practice this morning, madness trying to get groups between shivers :oops: not recommended, after 20 frozen minutes regained my sanity, and returned to the company of a warm fire, Mike. :doh:

Hi Mike

Due to me getting on a bit and not wearing very well, I've decided to start thinning my collection down as i'd hate for the wife to be stuck with 156 guns and loads of spares if I suddenly snuff it yet I still keep looking in sales forums and freeads! :evil: :evil: :evil:

It's a job to stop myself buying some of the bargains that I occasionally see!!


John :P

I've always been a shooter rather than a collector but even so have @ times had over a dozen guns as i could not resist a target pistol or ft rifle. however had a couple of sheds full of parts & accessories as i used to buy airguns to refurb & sell on as a hobby though never "Wobbly" pistols Yuk ;) Mike

Zunmik, I had treatment in the form of painkillers for two years plus for Arthritis, only to find out I had an overgrown piece of bone on the top of the ''cup'' part of my shoulder joint, which trapped the cartilage and caused excruciating pain and reduced mobility; I had an operation called an '' excavation'' in which the projecting part was removed; I now have gone from about 40% movement to full in all directions. Maybe you could try this as an approach with your GP??. My job was in engineering [R & D] and on some days working with test machines I could move some 4 tons of steel in small ish rectangular blocks as well as all the usual lifting of jigs and tooling on and off racking, so my shoulders [and other bits] took a hammering.
I know what you are going through, been there, so accept my sympathy but do try and get your shoulder scanned, you have nothing to lose.
Cheers

Cheers buddy but had a fall whilst hill walking several years ago my shoulder was severely dislocated with damage to bone pivot points + 2 out of 4 main shoulder muscles torn after treatment ended up with 3 working muscles (one a bit iffy) lots of physio means i can use it moderately well so better off than some :) , Happy new Year, Mike.
