Default Range time affects on body

Looking for everyone opinions.
I am on lite duty at work with my restrictions being 5lb max with my right arm lifting, pushing or pulling.

Would you think going to the range with a ar-15 and a g19 be breaking my restrictions?

Yes, assume someone snaps a pic of you.

I'd think two handed shooting the 19 would be okay if exposed, the AR, you're asking for trouble IMO.

Ask your doctor. If you run into problems do you really think saying to your employer "It's fine all the guys on the Glock forum said so"! Will not be a good response?

I don't think it would. Even though a fully loaded G19 is about 2.5 lbs, arm fatigue from being in a shooting position and the repeated recoil impulses may actually be more damaging than a single 5lb lift.

That said, FrontierTCB nailed it. [/thread]

yes.

After having wrist surgery last year my doctor told me not to shoot for at least 30 days. It was the worst prescription I could have received. However the young gifted surgeon knew exactly what he was talking about.

You will have plenty of for shooting after your body heals

Oh I wasn't not going to go solely off your responses but wanted your views.
Sucks having 2 new firearms and not being able to fire them at all.

hmmm, I was thinking it sounded like motivation for "weak hand unsupported" training.
