    Well, now you have the opportunity to shoot a case in a day just for fun, and evaluate from there. Mostly seriously, that is the sort of thing I would talk myself into doing.

    Thatís possible, provided I keep good concentration and focus; else Iíll do a few 500 round days in a row in my own and see how that goes. Iíve already come close over some 3 day stretches and been fine. I think Iíll be ok.

    You can't make a racehorse out of a pig. But if you work hard enough at it you can make a mighty fast pig.

    Before everybody got operator AF, we used to wear football receiver gloves. They're very thin, but it still took me a while to get used to the trigger with gloves on. Eventually I could shoot with or without and not notice a difference.

    What kills me now isn't recoil, it's the DA trigger and decocking. My hands are a jacked up a bit from injuries and age, though.
    Reed, the dicks have their job, and we have ours.

    All jokes aside, you may be shooting excessively. 500 rd days and 2500 rd classes invite repetitive type injuries to wrist and elbows specifically and perhaps to the shoulder. When I was much younger and shooting more, I had to use a wrist weight on my dominant hand to reduce felt recoil. There used to be some shock absorber wrist gismo's containing a liquid, and some used these. When still a teen, I developed a palm callous from extensive handgun shooting.

    Willie is a good name for a dog, male or female. No charge, either.
