I mentioned on the previous page how I made a couple of changes to accommodate some issues. I have seen the chiropractor since then and I told him. He told me that I shouldn't hurt in that middle back part (between my shoulder blades). So, that means I have some issues with the disc. He stated to keep my arms the way I am doing it now - but to try and slowly work my way to eventually having them all the way outstretched. It would benefit that joint to get the relief from the table, despite the pain right now.

First Look: Browning Black Label 1911-380


Quote
Unlike most 1911-styled .380 pistols currently on the market, the new Black Label 1911-380 is a scaled-down pistol that’s 85 percent the size of the Model 1911A1 in .45 ACP. Most significantly different from other .380-caliber 1911-style pistols are that Browning’s small parts mechanically function like a full-size .45. The single-action 1911-380 utilizes a precision-built composite frame and components that have evolved over a century make this a contemporary carry gun (i.e., extended controls that make it ideal for sport shooting and personal protection). And, the 1911-380 is made in the USA.

Admittedly, I am not a revolver guy. But I have never considered them on the level of Ruger and S&W, personally.

So Shipwreck, what decade did you first become a Flyer's fan?  Just askin' so I know which era we can discuss.

I watched them on and off over the years - just whenever I caught a game here or there on free tv. It was about 5 or 6 years ago I got hooked on hockey fulltime after I finally broke down and went to a Stars game in person. Been watching all the games ever since (like following a team by watching every game).

My fav Flyers year was when Jagr was on the team a few years back.

I'm not following the Canucks this year - they canned another coach, and blew up the team by getting rid of both goalies and several players. So, I'm not really following them this year after watching them non stop since the year they were in the Stanley Cup with Boston.

I was at the last Stars /Canucks game. They are.my second fav team. I was one of the few wearing a Canucks jersey. But I had no issues there.

Ok, I used that inversion table for the 2nd tiime today.

I learned a couple of things the first time. It bothered 1 spot I have a problem with between my shoulder blades if I stretch my arms over my head. So this 2nd time, I did not put my arms quite so far. But, that's a particular back problem I have.

And, 2nd - I learned after the first time I have to put a towel or wash cloth under my neck to support it - as I have neck issues and I wouldn't be able to lay down anywhere without neck support.

So, did that today - no issues this time.

I guess my back is a little more relaxed - I didn't have any of the pains this 2nd time that I had the first time, now that I know what works in my specific case. I'll try it 3x a day like the chiropractor says and see in a week if I have any benefit. So, jury is still out.

He told me to do three 5 minute increments. Take a break for 5 min, and then do it again. Then take a 5 min break again.

He told me to increase the angle slightly each time, and not go at too big of an angle. The last time, I'm about at the bottom of the medium range for this angle.

I read tons of reviews on amazon, and I didn't want to spend that much for the first one. That $99 one at Academy had favorable reviews on the academy website. And, it was one of the easier ones to adjust the angle to where ya want it. Putting it together wasn't too bad - I had to back track 2x and go back and reverse something I had did wrong - instructions is not the best - but not too hard.

Chiropractor told me you can actually stretch your spine too much if you hang all the way upside down - especially if you have back issues. As a teenager I did it on the monkey bars. But now, that wouldn't be a good plan for me. And, in some reviews, I did see some people say that their back would hurt if they did too great of an angle for too long. So, too much of a good thing can be bad, I suppose. I am taking it slow and seeing how this works for me.

It is amazing that the top socialists think that the rules they want and dedicate their lives to applies to EVERYONE ELSE but them  :th_thicon_lol:

Well, the game was a bit maddening - the Flyers have lost the first 4 games of the season - and it seemed like they were determined to lose again. But, they pulled it out in the end.

Fair amount of Flyers fans in the stadium, compared to other teams that come to Dallas and the amount of fans that come for those teams at other games.

39
But they are socialists. Those rules don't apply to the people IN CHARGE of the socialists. It's ALWAYS that way.

Just got back from the Flyers/Stars game in Ebola city. Flyers won in overtime - FINALLY!
