    Hello from Northeast Ohio

    Post by Grizzly Mama on Tue Sep 03, 2013 8:29 pm

    Hello from Ohio. I live in Ohio. Love the outdoors and shooting guns

    I have been around guns since my Mom married my stepdad. He taught me from when we first moved in when I was 6. I've loved guns ever since. I'm planning on trying a little competitive shooting next year. I can't work because of degenerative disk disease in my entire spine and peripheral neuropathy in my feet. So I have chronic daily pain. My pain management doctor is also a fellow shooter. He does his best. But guns are my therapy. As long as I can still shoot and enjoy it I'll be a happy chick. My favorite is my 1911 and my Ar that I customized myself. Working on building another one now.

    Hello Grizzly Mama and welcome to the forum!
    I feel for you with your pain management issues, as I am going thru very similar situation. My spine is fused L2-S1, and is failing above that level, so I will need to have more work done in the future. Shooting has become a real challenge for me, not only pain-wise, but I have also lost a great deal of strength in my lower extremities so I can't stand very stable at all, or for very long. Because of this, my accuracy leaves a lot to be desired... I could never shoot competitively, but I keep working so that if I need my gun for protection, I will be as proficient as possible.
    I think you and I can have lots of talks on what we have tried, and what works and what doesn't.
    Welcome from Fondis, CO!

    I use a tenz unit on my bad days for pain. But instead of the sticky pads I use the neoprene velcro garment that goes arount my lower back. The electrodes are covered by a socklike matrial that has velcro on the back so you can position it anywhere you want. You just spray the sock material with the special conductive solution and I'm good to go until they start to dry out which is anywhere from 30 - 45 minutes. But as long as I have my solution I can wear it all day and be pain free for the most part in my back. I see your also a licensed gun manufacturer. We'll definatly have to talk when I try competition next year. If you ever want to email me its barkville@windstream.net

    Thanks for the advice on the tenz unit. I have one, but don't use it very often... I tend to forget that I even have it sometimes. I am to the point where I have nerve damage and a lot of weakness in my lower extremities, so it isn't always a pain issue for me, I just can't stand up for long, and certainly not steady!

    As far as my FFL being manufacturing, I got that to have more options, but as of this time, I DO NOT do any manufacturing. I'd love to do that some day, but I am not ready for for it yet.
    btw my email is Lisa@FondisFirearms.com Thanks
