Here's wishing you a speedy recovery
This is a discussion on Executing Fugitive warrant nets more than expected within the Law Enforcement, Military & Homeland Security Discussion forums, part of the Related Topics category; Like a good wine, nice finish. I wish for a speedy recovery to your arm. A sling makes a great sympathy prop...if you know what ...

Oh yeah, well I processed tons of paperwork today in my cubicle, and then had to deal with Cincinnati drivers in the "Great Blizzard of '12" we are having. Sure, its only a light dusting, but have you ever driven through SW Ohio when little flecks of white start falling from the sky? I got a finger cramp too from all thetyping.
Seriously though g-man, sounds like you did good work. At least you weren't hurt worse, and you now get to enjoy some steak. Hope you have a swift recovery.

Thanks all for the get well wishes. I just woke up, feel refreshed, and my arm and hand feels ok. Gonna sit here, converse on DC and watch it snow outside. Tomorrow, I'm going to an indoor range and burning some powder:-)

Glad to hear you're ok! We can't have you "down for the count." Thanks for sharing the event!
I do some varied volunteer work in my retirement and started the day with a bad cold, grumping all the while.
After reading about your morning I think I'll just slink away in shame.
Just loaded a batch of .45 ACP this week. Maybe I'll get to burn off some tomorrow too.

What a job! Thank you for helping to keep criminals such as these off the streets. It must take incredible restraint to not just beat the crap out of some of these predators. I hope you heal quickly.
G-man - glad you are basically OK. Have fun shooting tomorrow and get well.

You are only paranoid until you are right - then you are a visionary.
Glad you're doing well-heal quickly and THANK YOU
The situation will NEVER BE THE WAY YOU WANT, it WILL BE THE WAY IT IS. You must be FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO ADAPT and just "DEAL WITH IT".
Maybe instead of a teddy bear, you could use a gummy bear...
Good luck on your recovery

Glad you weren't hurt worse, heal up fast!

Congratulations on the good catch.
Seriously, thanks for what you do, helping keep the country clean- I wish we had a few (thousand) more like you.
If you're ever in the Charlotte area, let me know, I'll buy you a drink.

Please try to remember- I have a very dry sense of humor. It usually sounds mean, but isn't meant to be.
Sounds like a pretty full day, Gman, but glad you're OK. Some TLC from Mrs. Gman, maybe a nip or two of some of that fine Kentucky Bourbon, and soaking up some gunsmoke on Saturday will be all the cure you need.
On a more serious note, you're painting a pretty light picture of all that went on today, but it could just as easily have gone south for your team. This is trivial from a guy who tests airplane junk and works with engineering formulas in a safe lab everyday, but thank you for all you do. Glad you got to go home at the end of the day.

Was that nail purchased illegally across the border? Seriously, glad you are going to be ok.
Looks like you're tougher than nails.
Congratulations on the bust.
