Ballistic Radio Tonight!

15-Feb-15 – 13:44 by ToddG


I’ll be on Ballistic Radio tonight at 7pm. The topic of discussion will be what it’s like losing your shooting ability and what it’s like trying to get it back. Should be a barrel of laughs! Listen in or check out the podcast once it’s up on the ‘net.

Train hard & stay safe! ToddG

  8. Todd,

    Enjoyed the podcast. I am a life long martial artist and shooting instructor and now have arthritis in my right elbow. Probably too many punches and too much dry practice so your podcast resonated with me. I have lost range of motion in my arm and my elbow aches all the time. I would really like to communicate with you regarding your surgery. I don’t need surgery just yet but it is probably just a matter of time. More importantly, I would like your advice regarding modifying what I am doing now to either postpone or eliminate the eventual need for surgery. I am sure you have learned a lot of lessons along the way and I would greatly appreciate your advice. I am in this game for life and hope to be able to with the proper guidance. Just as a reference, I am 52 years old. Thanks! Rod

  9. Rod — Thanks. My situation is a bit different than arthritis and I wouldn’t feel comfortable offering advice about something so far out of my lane. The only real advice I could offer is to to talk your doc; I’m not sure if they normally even do this surgery for arthritis patients.

    As for delaying the effects to avoid surgery, again, I’m not a doctor or physical therapist. That’s where I’d start. Beyond that, the obvious stuff I’m sure you’ve already considered: shoot .22 for things that are appropriate to practice with a .22; try to increase the number of range trips and decrease the amount of shooting you do at each; find a gun that seems to feel like it’s punishing your elbow the least; find a stance/grip that feels like it’s punishing your elbow the least.

    Really wish I could offer more intelligent advice but I’d hate to offer something that just ended up making your situation worse.

    Best of luck and I hope you find the best possible solution. Train hard & stay safe!
