    EL RENO — When Gene Sears' arms and hands went numb several years ago, he asked a doctor if firing a shotgun would have caused it.
    "No, that wouldn't do it,” the doctor replied.
    "What if you have fired 750,000 rounds?” Sears asked.

    The doctor then reconsidered the diagnosis.

    Now, those shotgun blasts have increased to more than 800,000 for the 77-year-old Sears, one of the best target shooters Oklahoma has ever produced.

    Sears has two fused vertebrae in his neck from a lifetime of shooting a shotgun.

    "I am paying a price for it,” Sears said. "Your body is not supposed to take so much recoil. But I wouldn't trade it. I would love to live it again.”

    Think he ever got hung up on 7 1/2 or 8?

    7/8, 1 oz or 1 1/8?

    God given talent that he completely utilizes. . .

    Great story!
