My shooting hand started to get very irritated and inflamed after I picked up a new pistol. I guess in trying to adjust my grip- the recoil was hammering on the joint that got inflamed?
It's actually been a few days since I last shot and the swelling went down a bit.
I had thought I waited long enough from the previous time that it was OK to shoot again, but clearly not. :(
I am guessing that my grip on the new weapon was leaving a small gap in that area allowing the recoil to 'smack' it round after round. Does that sound logical? Actually, in retrospect, I may have purposely relaxed my grip in that area so that the pressure didn't hurt it while holding, but it still got whacked while shooting so that didn't help.
I will not shoot again until several days after this is 100% healed.
Anyone ever get this before from shooting?
