    Have you CC'ed while injured?

    I recently crashed on my mountain bike and cracked a rib. This is the 3rd time in the past 20 years that I have suffered this type of injury and it will take me about 6 weeks to heal. I move slow, and hurt when I cough or sneeze. I would be a good target for a predator looking for easy prey, which is why I am more vigilant the ever. I always say that I would run for my life, now I’d have to limp away! I’m not taking anything stronger than Advil. If I needed something stronger, I wouldn’t carry because I wouldn’t be leaving the house. But in this injured state, I am more aware of how weakened I am and how I much more I depend on my CC weapon. Have you carried while injured? I thank to Second Amendment for the right to walk with confidence anywhere I might want to go.

    I still have residual effects of a stroke some years ago (right side weakness, limp, unable to run) and yes I carry everyday everywhere I can.

    Had the same injury you just described after getting bucked off the quarter horse outside wal mart. (Half of that is false)

    Carrying truly only bothered me while seated in a vehicle as it hit my ribs just right. I also found it easier to breathe and less painful when I wrapped my ribs in vet wrap. (Much like an Ace Bandage but cheaper and disposable. Yes I know its for animals.)

    I am right now too. I am 7 weeks out from falling on the ice and landing on my left elbow which broke the head of the humerus and tore the supraspinatus tendon (partial). The humerus broke where the tendon inserts. Just saw the doc today and things are going well, but there are certain movements that will bring tears to your eyes. I also can't bring my left hand into a shooting position and even if I did, the recoil would likely do damage.

    At first, 7 weeks ago, I switched to a revolver as I could not rack the slide on my G30. I have gained some strength back and can now rack the slide, so I am carrying it again, but it is good to have options.

    Injured or not, I'll be carrying. I have a bad back the frequently has me walking with a limp and stooped over, to the thugs out there I look like an easy target, but it is a mistake they won't make a second time.

    many times.

    its a hurtin way to validate the need to vary training and practice
    weak hand, one handed operations, with a cane or crutches.
    Be aware, be deliberate in your actions and be accurate.

    I am fortunate in that I am left handed. If they do have cut on my shoulder (left of course) I won't be able to draw. That means carrying on my right side. In all my holster shopping it has always been a challenge to find left handed holsters. Right handed ones I can get just about anywhere.
