Re: Doctors Under Siege?

I have a torn rotator cuff from one of the patients on my unit at one of the psych hospitals where I worked. He was truly and literally hitting me with one of the psych aides who was trying to help me. But I am just a nurse!

I had until yesterday a 1894 in 44mag and although it was not supposed to be able to shoot the lee 310 grainer, it shot them very well. I only shot 1 deer with it and several smaller critters it hit hard!. Deer went less than 10 yards. Groundhogs just popped.
