    My wife is a now-retired radiographer of better than 35 years' experience.

    I read your report aloud about 4, 5, 6 and 7 and she nodded wisely.

    She said scans are not ideal for rib fractures, as it's a helical exam, but it is excellent for picking up a bleed -- the scan is a very useful tool in your situation, had a rib punctured a lung the scan would've picked up easily.

    She added that gallstones are easily missed on a radiograph unless they're "of some size" and I don't know why she added that ... you ain't havin' pains up under your right ribs now are you?

    (My wife is psychotic, y'see ... I mean psychic ... no, honey, you don't need to look at what I'm writin' OUCH!)

    Yep, no punctures at all, and I can still deep breath without any pain now, pains have subsided substantinally, only come on if all of a sudden I think I'm superman and do stuff I shouldn't be doing and it comes back and gives me a kick. :D

    What Jackaroo said, I’ve experienced the same with my R.Vaquero’s, no way would I ever go back to stock hammers and no short stroke set up. My pistols were expertly done by Roy’s Creek Creek Dan, hex barrels and brass sights by Snake Oil George.

    Yep, when we lived in OK RCD looked after all our guns, he is really good, and I had the octagonal barrels put on mine also by that Snake Oil sales man too.:lol:

    They were excellent, were sold  to a cowboy in CA I think.

    1. Who are the gunsmiths that can and will short stroke pistols?


    2. Has anyone heard of a 1875 Remington clone being short stroked? If so who did it?



                  Slow poke 

    SPG, I short stroke Rugers and I have never found that I had to put stronger springs in unless you're using a hard primer. Federal or even Winchester work just fine with mine and in fact I usually replace the hammer spring with an even lighter one. Just need to get the spring length right.

    In fact I have a pair of consecutive number NMVs Rugers for sale right now on the wire and are in fact a bargain I think.

    Considering that a Boogie SS kit will cost you in the region of $500.00 when I last looked, in addition to the gun itself, these are great buy.

    The breathing ain’t so bad. It hurts some, but you adjust to it.  A cough, a sneeze, or hiccups can make you cry like a little schoolgirl!!


    Any jarring movement can be really painful!


    That one rib looks more displaced than the others.  Is it going to require surgery??

    Seeing the doc tomorrow morning to check on what he reckons.

    Glad you’re on the mend Jackaroo. :)


    I’m not 3 score and 10, but I am 3 score and 3 with 10 crashes under my belt. Would that count? Got lots of broken and mended bones. 
    Hey, after I’m cremated all the metal in my body could be melted down and used to make motorcycle parts. :D Sure that will count. :D


    Check out some Michelin Road 5 tires. Best wet weather tires in the world. If you get on a lot of dirt and gravel (or running ditches :D) check out the new Dunlop Mutant tires. I like ‘em for ridin’ here in West Virginia. Lots of gravel washes out into the country roads here. These tires don’t slide as easy on that stuff. 

    I have them on my bike now. My bike needs a bath. 


    Nice ride.

    I’ve put my old scooter down a time or three!


    I never broke any bones in a wreck, but I’ve had both feet broken from crap coming up off the road while riding! (The reason I have running boards now!). 

    Does that qualify me for membership??  :unsure:

    You bet.:lol:

    @Jackaroo, # 29989 I saw you posted on several threads on the Wire so how about an update on you?  Hope your recovery is progressing well.

    Hi Guys, 

    Yep Mohawk got it pretty right, if it had been dry I think I would kept it upright and be able lean in a bit more, but being bit wet was always a gamble. The guy behind me who saw it all unfold in front of him said I was that close but an inch or two on the grass/gravel is no easy task at that angle in the wet, I can be thankful to the good Lord there wasn't a vehicle coming the other way.???

    Ribs are coming along ok, still sore sometimes in different places and can laugh a bit now.  Going for more scans next month just to check how they are coming together..

    Will be at least till end of June before I'm back on the iron horse.:( and back shooting.

    It will be another bike as they've written mine off, too costly to repair and beside might never turn out right. Will look for a nice comfortable tourer this time :)


    Starting my own Seniors Club now, criteria to join is, must be at least three score and ten old, must have dumped a machine and broken some bones.:D:lol::o

    We had a VRBO home rented in Edmond, but I was just informed that the Host says the home is no longer available and refunded my payment. So, now we are looking for hotel rooms. Based on personal experience, which hotels would you recommend and which ones should I stay away from? We would like room to be a suite if possible.
