"is there any apprehension when pulling the trigger now"

My incident wasn't even remotely close to dkyser's, but I still occasionally have a flashback when I'm shooting my reloads.

Just a disquieting feeling that comes and goes.

Have to say there was a lot of flinch on that first shot, felt like I had an 80 lb trigger.

Was a factory load by the way.

Glad to hear you're doing well enough to get behind the trigger again. Hopefully the perceived pull weight will slack off a little with time.

Close to 100% recovery now but still a memory I will never forget.
Still to this day can't believe I was that careless, no other way to put it.
I am glad to hear your almost 100% again. To this day your story has me quadruple my double check.

Glad to hear your doing better!!!

You have been an inspiration to many of us to double/triple check what we are doing.

Best of luck to you!!
