At 55 I had a stroke. After lots of hosp and rehab I had forgotten how to shoot, reload and a bunch of other stuf. Now I am 62 and starting to get the hang of it. I can even take an 870 apart. Skeet is my game. My fav gun is a 28 gauge 870.

That's got to be a tough struggle - I tip my hat to you!

Hope it all falls back in place and you keep on going strong.

Yoda;

My Best to you in this trial. I shoot with a fellow, now in his 80's, that has had 3-4 strokes. He still runs a pump better than most. I don't know the areas affected by his strokes, But he, like you, has not given up.

I wish you well, friend, strokes have visited my family numerous times, and it is never easy.

YODA: Keep up the good work! My father had a stroke and unfortunately his outcome wasn't so good and he now is in a better place. I feel good knowing you have a good and improving quality of life. Here's to a good 2011 shooting season for you!!!

Hang tough!! And I advise any older person or expecially one with heart problems to get your corrated (neck) arteries checked for blockage.

My 45 year old sister had a stroke a few months ago so I know the hard work you have put in to get where you are. Great Job and good luck to you sir.

I had a stroke in April 2010. I'm finally able to hunt again after 2 years. Keep trying. You can't tell I ever had a stroke.
