Sorry to hear that. Up your SA and make sure your tazer is charged.

Learn to shoot with the opposite arm. Go with a smaller gun that is easier to rack, or use a revolver. Consider it a reason to buy another gun, and a challenge to increase proficiency!

Sorry to hear it, though, and best of luck.

If you are like me, being naked would scare off any potential attackers and then I wouldn't need the gun anyways! :cool:

Many, ,many "jeers" ago when I had surgery on my right shoulder I switched to an .38 spl. Airweight model 38 S&W body guard.

I carried it in a left side belt holster and spent more time practicing "south paw" shooting till things got better.

As said, revolver is good. One drill to practice is one-handed reloading.

Sorry to hear about your shoulder. Hopefully you'll heal up quicker than expected.

I had rotator cuff surgery on my right shoulder. It takes a bit to handle any recoil. I shot my 1911 after about 6 weeks and it hurt like all get out. It took a year or more before I could shoot a 12g. This is not a easy surgery and you will find it to be a real pain to do almost anything for a lot longer than they tell you.

This is a common injury for us Auto worker's and it takes much longer to heal than you would think. Good luck! Practice with your weak hand with a small revolver it will pay off in the end.

Sorry to hear, hope you recover quickly. As other said, if you can shoot weak side and practice as much as you can.

Thanks for the well wishes. I'm going batsh*t crazy not being able to use my arm. Can't afford to go buy a good revolver and also have no way to get to a range to practice left. Doesn't matter because when I am out I'm with my wife who is packing......lol

I have had 7 shoulder surgeries on both sides. I have a left and right holster for any of my carry guns. Remember to practice all aspects of carrying i.e. draw, presentation reloading. Revolvers are great but if you have to reload it is much more challenging with the support hand only.

Get well soon.
