A reason to practice with the other hand
I've been to a number of shooting schools and most cover "weak" hand shooting but lightly. While I do shoot ocassionally with my weak hand, it's not very often.
Yesterday I discovered why I may need to reconsider how much I practice with my weak hand. Over a period of about three hours, my right shoulder went from normal to very painful. I realized it was bursitis because I had that about 20 years ago and still remember it.
So there I was barely able to move my arm, much less draw my gun. That's when I realized without my right arm, I'm not very well defended. I figured the bursitis would run its course in about two or three days (maybe more), but it made me think what I would do if it was something that lasted longer, like a broken arm.
I would have to carry so I could reach and fire my gun with my left hand. I don't have any left hand holsters, so that would be a problem, but more so, I have very little trigger time with my left hand. I guess I'll shoot left-handed more.
Anyway last evening about 20:00 hours I treated the malady with minimal movement, an Aleve, did some ice treatments, and watched NCIS. By this morning I was surprised to discover my shoulder was back to normal.
It's really amazing how watching NCIS helped my shoulder!
