My middle age has started to catch up on me the last couple of years. Very Bad arthritis has always run on my Dad’s side of the family and the last 3 years it has really began to bother me. First it started in my left shoulder several years ago. The last 3 years has really gotten it going. Over the last year, my right hand has been having trouble. The trigger finger and the pinky being the worst. Much pain, stiffness and knots.
This has really started to mentally bother me and with ammo being what it is now in current reality, I don’t shoot my handguns as much as I am used to. Today I got the nerve up to go see how much ability I may have lost. Without a warm up at all, I went out cold and shot a bit to see where I’m standing.
The head group was shot at 15 yards in a semi slow manner. The torso group was shot from 25 yards very rapid. Gun is the Colt rail gun and ammo was Winchester military ball.
It was painful controlling the gun in the rapid fire string. I see problems ahead. Getting older is no way to treat an animal.
