Arm is completely numb now. Gonna try to wait until tuesday so I can go to my normal doc but I'm pretty sure it's a clot problem again. May have to take up that .410 shooting. They still make 22 shot shells don't they?

OkieCruffler,
Sorry to hear that, my friend. Did you go shooting today, or is this left over from your previous outing? Why does stuff like this seem to wait for a holiday weekend...
Our thoughts and prayers are with you,
Pete

Nope, this is still going on from last Tuesday. I've had a pretty nasty problem with clots and no one can seem to figure out why. nothing a little lovenox won't fix but I'm always worried one of the little buggers is going to put on his traveling shoes and set up camp in the heart or the old melon. Starting to get kinda annoyed over the whole thing.

I appreciate it guys. I think it's a little better today, hurts instead of numb. Been self treating with aspirin, man does that turn my tinitius up a few notches. Not sure what I'm gonna do, I don't want to give up shooting clays. Maybe I can find a decent 28ga and start working a little harder with that mini bore. Or I could load some 1/2 oz 20's and try that. I do know that I'm done with the 1 1/8 oz 12ga loads.

John, in the months before I got this titanium hip, there was a fair amount of pain. My choices were A, John Wayne it out, B, Opiates or C, Acupuncture.

Having a history behind me of too many painkillers at times,and dreading the loss of cognition, I went with C.

It works,at least in my case.

As for light loads,Hodgdon has some 3/4 oz 12 gauge loads on its site.

I used to have a recipe around here somewhere for a 1/2oz 12ga load. May look it up again. Although I did see a really cute little 20ga auto....
