Broken Arrow, I mean Ankle [graphic]

Recommended Posts

Wow, I never noticed there was an "injury" sub forum...

Last Sunday at Leroy Rifle and Pistol club, I slipped and fell during a stage and broke my ankle.

If I was a horse, they would have to shoot me.

A co-worker of mine broke his ankle considerably worse than that (broke both tibia and fibula) riding his bike across a parking lot. He was down for 8 months and still has lots of stiffness in it a year later. My sis-in-law on the other hand broke hers almost identically to yours playing on a trampoline, and a couple of months later she was back up and at it. I'm sure you'll be shooting again soon.

That sucks! Did you finish the stage? :D

No, I didn't. I did, however receive several compliments on how rock steady my trigger and muzzle discipline remained, as I fell. I also managed to correctly show clear and safely re-holster

That's awesome (the muzzle and trigger control part under stress...not the ankle). Mend quickly.

On the bright side at least you'll be able to dry fire while you heal. Get well soon.

Take it easy on your way back to the sport, if you don't let it heal right it will nag you the rest of your life.[/motherly nag]

I have an identical Xray, except there are 5 titanium screws holding it together.

6 weeks. Stay off the leg but try to lift small weights constantly and use the hell out of your crutches. It's awesome core excercise.

You'll be hobbling through matches by the middle of summer!
