    It flares up when I shoot.What can you do to prevent it while shooting, I wonder if I am gripping the gun too tight.

    I had a similar problem... and cured it by adding 1/2 inch to the length of pull with one of those black plastic spacers. I hope this helps you.

    Good luck

    romie- Make certain you are not putting your wrist in an unnatural position when you mount your gun.-- Try to keep your arm, wrist and hand as a single, locked unit that moves together with your upper body.

    Have you considered having it checked out and diagnosed with a surgeon and see what he might charge for a arthroscopic amputation somewhere between the ginglymus type of joint and the afflicted area.

    Chances are you have an inflamed wrist from some other injury and shooting inflames it to the point of hurting ... take some aspirin or something before shooting or lay off shooting for awhile and if its that bad and if it does not get better go see a doctor.

    Romie,

    I had something similiar: it was a cyst that caused tendonitis. The docs wanted to remove it via surgery - I would'nt let them do it and wound up taking an anti inflamatory drug called Mobic. I take it as needed and the pain goes away in a few hours -No side effects.

    Hope this helps, Pat Christopher

    Sounds to me like the ritus boys have attacked you,In case you do not know the ritus boys,Arthur is the worst one.The way I have chased him out of my life is by taking "Fish Oil Concentrate"2,000 milagrams every eve when I go to bed.I asked a couple of Drs.about it as my mother was on heavy heart medication,and he told me there was nothing in it that would hurt by taking it.He said it makes sense as fish don't get old arthur and they are in water all the time.Hope this helps.Yukon Jack.Forgot to tell you to take it after your meal.

    Thanks,, I think I do put a death grip which puts it in an unatural position. I know I can take something to make it stop but not long term.Yukon Jack I'll try anything once fish oil will be something new I am sure my wife will laugh at me. by the way I am 54 years old

    Are you shooting a thumbhole Stock?
    That hurt my wrist too. Wrist ends up taking some of the recoil.
    Loose that if you are.
