    To continue my trek to a healthy shoulder, here's the update. Was operated on 3 weeks ago today. Torn Labrum, Bicep, 2 large bone spurs necessitating shaving off 3/8 inch of collarbone. Rehabbing twice a week and really going thru some strenous and painfull exercising. Was told that I no longer need a sling if I'm careful. Getting rotation back slowly but inproves daily. Should be totally healed within the next 6 - 8 weeks. In time for the Colorado State shoot. The only information that I'm in need of will be next week at the Surgeons visit....can I shoot again without damaging it? My lesson learned as stated on my previous thread by many.... Rehab, Rehab, Rehab!

    I started back to shooting with a 390 and light loads,after 25 was ready to give it a rest. seems like if i tried to shoot my perazzi it was a real effert to open and close it, so the auto worked for me. good luck..

    Had my rotator cuff and bicep tendon done on June 19, 2009. Shooting .410, just to say I was shooting, 3 months later. Hardest part was the weight of the P gun. Found I could no longer take any type of recoil, had a army buddy tell me about the Evo Recoil Shield(Cabela's has them) and bought one AND a PFS stock and am back to shooting again with NO pain!! The Evo Shield really just spreads the recoil over a larger area and I also gain the perfect fit in the pocket no matter how many shirts, long johns etc.I have on every time I bring it up to shoot. The PFS stands for itself, a real limb saver.
