    Well... bad news for the wrist..

    As some of you know, I finally had the wrist operation and have been recovering, I've been going to physical therapy.

    Unfortunately, even though the Doctor did the best he could, my wrist and hand can not move pass 45 degrees in one direction and less in the other direction basically moving the hand up and down. There is also some other things wrong with it as well from side to side.

    I can still shoot .22LR, and "maybe" my TCP 380 but I'll need to get rid of my 9mm and also my shotgun.. there's no way... even down the road.
    I also have partial nerve loss on the top of my hand, and some nerve damage on the bottom of the knuckles.

    I am thinking on getting maybe a full or compact .22 auto or.. maybe a smaller barrel .22 revolver in the near future. Also keeping an eye open in regards to the Taurus TX22... as long as there is no outstanding issues with that gun.

    Sorry to hear the bad news. Are you continuing the physical therapy and hoping to gain more movement and feeling?

    I'm sorry to hear that, Tom. I was praying for better results. In your quest for a manageable caliber, don't forget the .22 WMR, aka 22 magnum. For no increase in perceived recoil, it does deliver an increase in energy at the other end. Something to, maybe, keep in mind.

    I am sorry that the results are not better for you. I had my SR 22 out today and really enjoy shooting that one. My Heritage steel Rough Rider finally shipped today out of Texas...that one has 22 WMR capability.

    That's definitely not good news. I hope there is some continued improvement in mobility. I agree the TnC on the .22 magnum. You might find it's something that will work for you and it does have a bit more hit power.

    Thanks, I have about 6 more days left.. and just like the Doctor, they are "very" awesome.. but they also told me that all the things that we are doing, I can do at home.
    The doctor said the same, I'll keep on going and they'll try to give me more flexibility.. especially seeing how the finger tendons also tight. Again, the doctor and the whole staff at this place is awesome, it's just the outcome is the best that could be had in regards to the injury.

    Try to stay HappyTom. I know full well the sadness experienced when DR's and Therapist can't resolve the issue. I had to give up hiking,hunting, riding horses or motorcyles and other fun things after my botched left hip replacement. Knowing that you can't ever return to a pre-injury state of being, can be quite depressing. So for me I found a new hobby, I took up shooting seriously and gun smithing because I can do both with little impact to my left hip. Now dealing with terrible problems with my right side sciatic nerves - result of football and other crazy stuff when I was young. I may have to find another new hobby unless (knock on wood) therapy and poss spinal surgery fix that issue. What I am getting at as our bodies fail us , we need to find other ways to get enjoyment, to keep that frustration in check.

    Thanks for your prayers, I appreciate that. I do have.. my heritage .22LR rough rider revolver still and that .22 WMR cylinder, and I have the Taurus PT22.. I just want something bigger than the PT22 to replace my 9mm. Like I always do, I going to take some time and research and read up on all makes and models.. taking a look thru YouTube at moment, and bookmarking. Looking and considering buying a new gun, also is keeping me positive... it's been kind of rough going since the start of 2019.

    Thank You, I appreciate that. You'll like the Heritage.. I do like mine, and I have the 22 WMR cylinder also. I "REALLY DO" appreciate that firearm as it very easy for me to shoot and re-load the cylinder with "one" hand..weak / off handed. One idea of mine.. is buy one with the "bird's head" type of "grip". That Ruger SR22 that you have, I been looking at that one for a while.. its on my "list" that I am compiling.

    .22 mag in another firearm other than my heritage revolver, is still on my list. I'm taking my time to research all options especally all of the reviews out there, and then buy it.
