Got to try the S&W 500 magnum snubbie today and can’t stop thinking about it. Something about that shockwave tickles my happy button. Thanks again to HDF for putting on this event and hope the next one is not too far away. Fingers crossed for cheaper ammo so we can do a real training session

Did it fit?  Or need adjustment?

One of my shooting buddy's gained just a bit of COVID weight.  That resulted in needing some adjustment on his belt.  Quite a lot of adjustment.   :rofl:

I actually had to take it in an inch.  I last tried it on when the belt came in months ago with my range pants.  Since then, when I dry fire, boxers are used. So no way of seeing if need adjusting till Saturday.  The new holster takes some getting used to.  The hood is released by pressing the button toward your leg.  Compared to others where you press the button down toward the ground, or down and forward toward the ground.

We are lucky, our condo has a very good gym. Squat racks, dumbbells that go to 100.  Residents gyms were allowed to open before commercial gyms.  But in general, I lost weight even when the gyms were closed.  The high protein diet wasn't needed and because I wasn't burning as many calories, I wasn't as hungry as normal. Lost lots of muscle mass too, because the shirts felt baggier than normal.

But 1 good thing of COVID is that my shoulder has been messed up since 2015. Since 2015, I was not able to bench more than 225lbs for 6 reps or so. 

When I do flat barbell bench press 225lbs or more and only that exercise, I get a tingle up my entire right arm and sometimes the arm gives out about 2 inches above my chest.  This prevents me from going heavy or lifting until failure.  I needed to save energy to rack the bar and take the pressure off slowly as to reduce the shock.  It's like doing only 5 push ups, knowing you can do 20 easily.

So when the gyms opened up, I found out my shoulder is g2g.  It's AWESOME to be able to lift normally again.  I can go heavy with no issues.  But I did lose about easily 50lbs on my squat and deadlift.  But overall a good trade off.

What holster is that?  The retention sounds interesting. 

Did you have a rotator cuff injury recently?  I used to have that tingling, particularly when rotating my upper arm.  Flat bench was painful, but dumbbells were ok.  I think you should bet Macsak on bench press.  :P

We had a push up challenge. Idk if he ever made it.

So the tingle only happened when flat benching. Incline bench, decline, military press, lat exercises all g2g. So it was super weird. Also spent abouy $3k in various massage techniques (except happy ending, im married) and chiro. Turns out all i needed was a few months of rest.

The holster is from Fal Tac Unlimited. 1 man operation, but seems to be getting busier. He popped up on my YT randomly. He was 1 of the few who can do a vp9, with hood, RTI attachment and TLR1 and didnt cost me $150.
