Bad day then good range day with pics

Went to my orthopedic dude today and the news is surgery in a week or so. Left shoulder has torn ligament and some other crap with the rotator cuff. I've had this surgery before (25 years ago) and recovery will be about a year with the damage I have. CRAP!
Depressed so decided to detour to BDC in Shawnee.
Relieved some stress on a target.
Using 230 grain 45 Federal brass at 12 yards. Shooting the Kimber 45 Desert Warrior TFS SOC.
Pic one is the first 10 rounds (getting settled in). Second pic is 20 additional rounds and pic three is putting 40 more rounds down range. Only had 70 rounds with me.
A few fliers (caused by Matt Damon) but I'll take it considering I was a bit tense.

Nice shooting. Sorry about the shoulder, I’m in PT trying to avoid surgery. Want to get to the range but not at the expense of my rotator cuff. Good luck.

Is your doc not going to allow you to shoot at all; or do you now need to spend a half year becoming proficient with your off hand?

Shooting will not be an issue. Golf, on the other hand....wellll.
With all they have to do, it's a year to be normal. I've had this surgery before but the tear and tendon are a bit ragged. Plus some bone will have to be removed and so on.
4 weeks zero, then 4 weeks rehab and on and on and on.....
I'm not that guy. I'll be back 100% in 12 weeks. They have their time tables and I have mine.
Should be a good chance to practice with one hand and with rifle(s) since it's the off shoulder.
I'm not a good patient. So what...Ha!
Already figured out how to set up my bench to shoot and will be making my target stands one are capable

I have lost range of motion in my right shoulder; can't use a SOB holster anymore. I suspect it is a rotator cuff issue but I have been putting off getting a diagnosis. A one year rehab sure doesn't sound good. I hate getting old!

Won't take a year, it just hurts for a year. I've got a lot of crap in the cuff. Last surgery they had to trim the clavicle and lots of spurs developed off of that.
Such is life.

So the answer to your question would be...yes, no, yes, no, yes, no..........
