I'm as far east as you can get without swimming in the ocean. If you ever wanted to meet up for a shoot I'd have no problem traveling, though. I'll always travel for a good cause(read: shooting, drinking, etc.)




I'd guess I'm probably around the same - 2 hours away from GA border - perhaps less.

I hope you're not talking about tomorrow - I'm flying around 2:00. After tomorrow I'm pretty much game for whenever/wherever though.





But just send me a PM, and we'll go shoot sometime. We need to organize a GA/SC/NC/FL MP-pistol meet. 8)

They are putting you under for a epidural cortisone injection? I've had long term back problems (that's why I'm retired) and have had the series of epidural, all they gave me was a local, I had a real good anesthesiologist to do mine, the only thing that hurt was the local anesthetic shots, after that I just did what he told me to do.

oh yes

My back problems as follows... no fluid in my l1 disc, Low disc space l1-l2 discs. Herniated disc l3, l4, l5 discs. and compression fracture in the middle of my back.. The only reason I did the corizone shot was because they knocked me out I was very hesitant but hey there is less room for error if I am passed out right. right now it is very uncomfortable to do anything but that is what the lortab is for..

OK, top this, I have more Titanium than the space shuttle and still running around with my hair on fire in the woods, so quite your belly aching... :wink: Since I have several fused disc's my epidural cortisone injection or RAZC start at my tailbone, creep through spinal channel to each area to be injected. I will scan my latest x-rays, I watch the whole thing on the x-ray monitor. Its pretty neat and for only a local, it can be a bit painful, but hey grown men dont cry, they just shoot M&P's...



My work, put up or shut up...

Most people say that after I show the scars or explain myself... I take 325mg of Percocet 1-3 times a day and 325mg of Ultracet 3-6 times daily for nearly 2.5 years. I have been diagnosed as having Failed Back Syndrome, or surgery failure for back pain. I fought to remain in the Army for the last 2 years with Medical Boards and luckily I will be able to retire this fall... But, as my surgeon states, "its not retirement that you should worry about, its your future"... So a word to wise, take care of your back, it will take care of you...

Its amazing how I can do that, :wink: but to be honest I am sort of worthless without my spine... So, that's why I only take it out for photo's
and 350lbs charging gorillas.
