    Had shoulder surgery 12th of December Dr says no lifiting for at least another month. I teach High School and worked a Track and Field event on Saturday, got a wif of gun powder form the starters pistol. Sunday I went to my local Trap Club and hug out and watched is that wrong? I really couldn't help it I just had to go and at least watch and say hello to some friends. What do you do when you can't shoot for an extended time?

    I rag my friends but you really don't know the new shooters. You can only shoot if your a full member, shooting member, or a guest of a full member so not a lot of new shooters to work with.

    Find yourself a good personal trainer with a degree in physical therapy and leave the shoulder problems behind you. Had a bad shoulder for 25 years so I know of which I speak. It wasn't cheap but it worked for me. took about 8 months for the shoulder to be 98 per cent plus. Good Luck, Bill

    Thanks for the response, jackmitch to answer your question, I had a replacement revison. This was my fifth surgery on the same shoulder. The glenoid (socket) part of my replacement done 12 years ago loosened as the cement broke down. The gelenoid was moving and enlarging the holes in the shoulder blade. Another 4 hr plus surgery can't believe it first surgery was 40 years ago.

    You can cut the grass a day before each shoot. Sweep the club house floor, but trophies, set targets, score a field, help with cashiering, work shoot offs, clean up the fields after a shoot, print and mail the program for the next shoot and help clean and repair the traps. Someone else has been doing these jobs for you for many years and if you can't shoot for a while, maybe it is time to help out others as they have helped you.

    All great ideas and in another month when I'm allowed to lift my arm I'll go try doing some of the work around the club.
