    Well in preparation of the Pikes Peak 3 day Memorial Day Shoot and the Colorado State shoot in a few weeks, I have decided to try 50 targets this Sunday. First time since right shoulder surgery on Jan. 20th. Everyone, especially those who have had the same surgery, pray for me. I'll make sure that I am wearing my depends. :eek:)

    Blade- I would consider such things as light loads and a Precision Fit Stock.

    Pat- I plan on shooting light loads and wearing a vest with gel pad. I'm really not too concerned about itother than sorenss that would be typical from not shooting for 7 months. An ice pak will also accompany me. Doctor wished me good luck. By the way, this western shooting is a far cry from that Southern shooting that I'm use to.

    Shot today and all went well. A little soreness that could be expected. 23 & 23 in a 40mph backwind. I'm happy!!! But... will wear a padded vest for the rest of the season. GRAND AMERICAN HERE I COME.
