I had a bit of bad luck with a retinal detachment this summer. Modern medicine got me back together without any loss of vision but I am extremly reluctant to take any chances that might cause another detachment and permanent loss of sight. I have come to prefer hunting with a bow anyway so probably won't miss the big bore rifles. However, I do enjoy shooting the big bore handguns and will probably miss that more than anything. Nevertheless, I have made my decision that sight is more important than shooting and will move on. I have made my choice but am curious to know whether any of you has had a similar experience or knows somebody who has had a retinal detachment and continued shooting. I believe Sugar Ray Leonard continued his boxing career after his retinal detachment but it seems to me that there is too much at stake to take such chances.
